Both government representatives acknowledged the many women holding positions in local government and volunteering on commissions and committees.

The objectives of National Business Women’s Week are to promote full participation and equity for women in the workplace; to publicize the achievements of business and professional women on the local and state levels; and to publicize the objectives and programs of the Business & Professional Women’s Club as they relate to the millions of business and professional women across the country.
