Honoring WithIt's Presidents
In 1997 WithIt was founded by a passionate, dedicated group of women who saw a need for the female influence and leadership in the home and furnishings industries. Twenty years ago this month our founding leaders were meeting, plotting, planning and working for the launch of WithIt.
To encourage and develop leadership, mentoring, education and networking opportunities for professional women in the home and furnishing industries.
We begin our celebration of our 20th Anniversary by honoring the many presidents of WithIt who have given their vision, time, money, dedication and leadership. The WithIt President is a volunteer role. These women often spend more than 5 years working on the board of directors to benefit women in the industry.
Without these leaders, we would not be here today as a vibrant, growing organization. Each of these women has left their mark on the organization in some special and significant way. Their leadership has allowed WithIt to grow and evolve.
We have so many programs to thank them for:
The education breakfast
The professional conference
The WOW Awards
The NY Design Tour
The scholarship foundation
We thank these women for their leadership and service to WithIt and the industry.
