Message From Our Chapter President
Welcome to the official website of the Lansing/East Lansing (MI) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated!
It is my pleasure to serve as the President of a chapter filled with accomplished and influential women of diverse backgrounds, committed to our organizational core values of: Friendship, Integrity, Honesty, Service, Commitment, Family Relationships, Courage, Respect for Self and Others, Legacy, Confidentiality, Responsibility, and Accountability.
As one of the Nation’s oldest and largest volunteer service organizations, The Links, Incorporated was established in 1946 and continues to serve as a premier international, not-for-profit corporation. Today, our collective membership strength includes nearly 14,000 professional women of color in over 280 chapters globally.
Chartered on October 28, 1972, the Lansing/East Lansing (MI) Chapter has placed vision into action for over 40 years through developing programs to empower the people who live in our community while advancing our organization’s five National Facets: Health & Human Services, National Trends and Services, International Trends and Services, Services to Youth, and The Arts. We are equally grateful for the relationships we’ve established with local sponsors and partners (community leaders within the realms of policy, education, the arts, health institutions, and other organizations) who share our passion to inspire.
It is also a great pleasure to announce our upcoming 9th Annual White Rose Gala on Thursday, March 28, 2019 at the Country Club of Lansing. We graciously ask for your continuous support and attendance as we proudly present our 2019 ATHENA Young Professional Leadership and ATHENA Organizational Leadership awardees. These prestigious awards recognize amazing community leaders who have been exemplary in contributing to society in a meaningful way, model our mission to empower women, and showcase the phenomenal talent base within our region.
In all that we do to enrich, sustain, and ensure the culture and economic survival of our communities we remain “Linked in Friendship and Connected in Service” and hope you are equally inspired to link with us in supporting our outreach efforts to shape a better world.
