Publisher John Krikorian stated, that each year at the photo shoot gathering, the Women Achievers would ask for a reunion to continue networking and building relationships. We have finally taken up the call for action.  The timing is right for the 20th event that will also have a showcase for sponsors and non-profits that participate. The timing on target with the state of the economy will inspire, motivate and lift the spirits of those outstanding achievers, who give of themselves year after year.  This will be truly a Celebration for “Women Extraordinaire”.

This event will honor the top women over the past two decades, along with the 2010 women leaders making a difference not only in their profession and business, but the community at large.  Honorees will be women of outstanding accomplishments, leaders, innovators, problem-solvers, and mentors to others and are philanthropist.

As word spreads for this spectacular event, names are being submitted, from previous women non-profits, civic organizations, by email for those to be honored for the past 20 years, along with those wishing to participate and support this year’s special event.

Past winners include prominent CEOs of businesses and service organizations, large and small, partners in professional service firms, education leaders and other fields with a commitment to reaching out to those in need.

The meeting announced the Honorary Co-Chairs for the event as Supervisor Michael Antonovich and Mrs. Christine Antonovich, a 2005 Women Achiever. The Advisory Team is made up of former Women Achievers and those that called to be part of this Celebration.
