About the WOW! Forum

The WOW! Forum, a program of the Northwest CT Chamber of Commerce, was created in 2005 in response to the need for professional development and personal growth opportunities for women.

Thank you to the Advisory Board, without whose planning and dedication, the WOW! Forum would not be possible.
