NAWIC January Meeting – Wed. Jan. 13th
January 13, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
>>>>> Get your ticket through Eventbrite to get the Zoom meeting information <<<<<<
We are trying something new this month! Instead of limiting our meeting to one speaker, we have invited three amazing NWA organizations to introduce themselves and discuss their needs with our group. While we are in difficult times right now with limited opportunities, these organizations are still pushing forward and helping the citizens of Northwest Arkansas.
The Ted-Talk style set up feature 10-15 minutes per speaker and then 5 minutes for questions for each. They will introduce their organizations and what needs NAWIC members could fill or how they can help our members.

WENDI SEIDEL, PROGRAM DIRECTOR
After serving for 3+ years as a Saving Grace mentor, I stepped into the role of Program Manager at the end of 2018. I am so grateful to get the opportunity to serve our Lord while locking arms with the Saving Grace girls and mentors!
Here at Saving Grace we believe, if “Grace” can’t see it, she can’t be it! And that’s my job precisely, to help Grace ‘see what she can be’ by helping to plan and execute impactful Life Skills Classes, dream about and prepare for independent living, and my personal favorite—pairing Grace with her cord of three mentors! Our mentors are fierce, brave, and kind women like YOU who choose to mentor Grace for LIFE! Yes, I said life!
