WIMS and CNY Women's Bar Association Annual Dinner

Since 2004 we have co-hosted a dinner with the CNY Women’s Bar Association.  The dinner is at a local hotel and offers a panel discussion on a topic of mutual interest.  The event is open to the public and is an excellent opportunity for networking with other community professionals.

Our 2023 Annual Dinner was held on October 19, 2023 and was well received by all who attended.  Planning will begin for 2024's dinner. Watch email for more information.
