Outreach Events - Join our Mission to INCLUDE!


CCRWC has a new Outreach Committee focused on actively reaching out to a broader base of women throughout all of Cobb county with the goal of making sure all women, both potential new members and current members, feel welcome and included in our club. Women in north, south, east and west Cobb; business women, stay-at-home-moms, and retirees; private, public and homeschool parents; twenty-somethings through grandparents; singles, married and single parents; all diverse and ethnic backgrounds; and even husbands and men (who can get an Associate membership) – you are all welcome and wanted in our club! The Outreach Committee plans to reach new members or reengage existing members by hosting small gatherings in people’s homes or nearby business establishments as a way for like-minded people to meet, connect, have conversations, and share concerns. Guests can also learn about the CCRWC and how our club might provide them with the fellowship, resources and solutions they are seeking. If you would like to host an outreach event or would like to be on the Outreach Committee, please contact our Outreach Committee Chair Catherine Floam at thefloams@yahoo.com or 703-282-3544, or the Co-Chair Ellie Tillman at EllieChiro@gmail.com.
