2020 Women of Distinction

Congratulations to all the honorees that have been selected as Women of Distinction for 2020!

Due to COVID-19, we were unable to have our annual luncheon to celebrate the 30th anniversary together, and so wanted to honor the women through a video.

Please enjoy the video honoring these women for their commitment and dedication to our member organizations in Montgomery County!
