Please join us on January 24th for our 2018 Annual Membership Meeting as we honor our outgoing board members and reflect on the successes of the past year. We will introduce the 2018 LWRBA Board of Directors, as well as take a look at what's in store for the Alliance in the coming year, including the launch of our newest committee, Community Engagement.

We will welcome guest speakers, Mary Glass of the Manatee Education Foundation and Michelle Young of the Education Foundation of Sarasota County, as they present a "big picture" look into the strengths of our local schools, as well as the challenges they face today, and into the future. These foundations' programs provide opportunities for children that not only positively affect their lives, but impact the future of our business community as a whole.
