Kelly Elkins is on the organizing committee and said they hold educational sessions on specific topics including working with non-profits, healthcare ,and local government.

“If you’re interested in running for city council, if you want to serve on a board like the United Way or Women’s Resource Center or Humane Society, the opportunities are there,” Elkins explained. “They’re giving you that information to take part in those opportunities.”

Elkins said they meet once a month at the Beckley-Raleigh County Chamber of Commerce and sessions are held in the Fall.
