2020-2021 DISTRICT 4 LEADS REPRESENTATIVE - Denane Owen, Burlington Woman's Club
Denane’s leadership skills as well as her dedication to volunteerism are truly a gift to our organization. She will represent our District at the LEADS seminar. GFWC initiated the Leadership Education and Development Seminar, LEADS, for the purpose of finding, training and encouraging clubwomen from the grassroots level to step up, pursue, and accept leadership opportunities in their clubs, districts, states and nationally. A NOTE FROM DENANE OWEN: I’m honored to have been selected to represent District 4 at the upcoming GFWC-NC LEADS session. My personal goals for attending this session is multifold….absorb GRWC history and knowledge, develop and refine leadership skills and interact with fellow GFWC LEAD candidates in hopes to form a lasting relationship. After retirement from the workforce, I wanted to find an activity to help fill some of my downtime and provide me with the opportunity to give back to the community. One day I ran into an acquaintance while leaving the YMCA who highly recommended I check out the Burlington Woman’s Club. After joining BWC in 2017, I realized I had found a home and wanted to be part this organization of selfless women whose goal is to give back. Shout out to BWC members.
