Executive Women celebrate 35 years

The Network of Executive Women celebrated 35 years of women helping women last month and swore in new officers for 2014-2015.

The organization was started by six women in 1979, and now boasts more than 75 local business leaders who support each other and the Milford community.

The group regularly hosts information and networking forums, and raises funds to help women with a demonstrated financial need gain access to education and training opportunities.

The new officers are: Mary Birarelli of Birarelli Insurance, President; Phyllis Mullins of Send Out Cards, Vice President; Anne Faraclas, Event Planner, Corresponding Secretary; Theresa Rose DeGray, Consumer Legal Services, LLC, Recording Secretary, and Elizabeth Santaus, Dressler Santaus, LLC.

The Network of Executive Women Milford, Inc. provides a platform for business and executive women to share ideas, promote one another's endeavors, and support the goals of individual members.

The 35th anniversary year culminates with the club’s signature event, Girls Night Out, on Oct.16, held at Saint Barbara's Greek Orthodox Church Social Hall, Orange.
