Message from the President


Greetings, WID Members!

WID Matters.

We hear this from our members, from our board, and from our scholarship recipients. We get ‘that’s so cool’ comments from our middle school participants in STEM programming. And we see it in the formal and informal mentorship. 

You’ll hear more about this theme – WID Matters – at our gala on November 3. (Why yes, we welcome your sponsorship for this premier event.)

Size Matters.

Women in Defense is a national organization, with 20 chapters across the country. This year, your Michigan Chapter became the largest chapter in the country. Why does size matter? First, it highlights just how important our beautiful state is in the defense industry. Second, it amplifies our collective voice. The more members we have, the better our networking and meaningful programming.

We want to double in size, with true statewide programming valued by members from Marquette to Monroe. If your membership is not current, please join again. And while you are at it, tell a friend or two about us. We welcome their involvement.

WID board members volunteer their time to ensure our programming is effective, our members are welcomed, and our operations are sound. Please join me in thanking our board for their service. They all have day jobs, and they all give generously of their time and talent.

Your WID Michigan chapter has several upcoming fun events. Please follow us on the socials or stop by our events page to stay current, and join us. We’re fun.
