WOMEN LEADERS OF THE COMMUNITY
CHARTER 100 is a nonpartisan, Professional Association for women leaders from diverse fields. The organization was founded in San Diego, California in 1978. Phoenix is the second chapter of The Charter 100, and was formed in January 1979.
The purpose of The CHARTER 100 is to recognize the outstanding women in the community and to provide a forum for their interaction. Monthly meetings are designed to enlighten and inform members by providing continuing education in a variety of fields. Speakers of national prominence address the group regarding the latest trends of thought in their respective fields.
The Charter 100 offers its members nine or more programs and/or parties during the year. Members and their guests enjoy both local and national speakers, and always have the opportunity of a Q & A session at the end of each luncheon. Also, there are usually four or five evening salons, held at member’s homes with an intimate group of members only attending. The Welcome Back Reception in September and the Holiday party in December are popular annual events.
