About Us​

GLOW is an organization of women dedicated to empowering, supporting and inspiring women in our community. We welcome all women - regardless of income, race, ethnicity or socioeconomic status.

While we started as a women's networking organization, we have evolved into much more than just a place to meet potential business contacts.

For the woman who is new to the community, we are a welcoming source of local information and friendships. For a nonprofit professional hoping to spread the word about her organization's mission, we are an audience of eager listeners and potential supporters. And for the small business owner or career woman, we are active cheerleaders and patrons.

The members of GLOW seek to support one another in whatever path each has chosen in life. Membership is free, and the only requirement to stay active is attendance once a quarter at monthly lunch meetings.

Like any organization, what you get out of your membership depends greatly on the effort you put in! Network, engage and empower, and you’ll reap great rewards!
