  2. We can support women in the military serving and their families.
  3. We can mentor and empower women through education and support our Business Women of Missouri Foundation.
  4. We can expand, encourage, and invite others in our communities to increase our membership.
  5. Encourage members to become more involved in the community to make your local more visible.
