November Global Broadcast     

A NOTE FROM JANET

We are tremendously saddened by the devastating impact Hurricane Sandy has had on the lives of millions of people along the Eastern Seaboard of the United States. Many of our members have pitched in to help those in dire need in Far Rockaway, Staten Island, lower Manhattan, and the Jersey Shore.  The Red Cross, AmeriCares, Robin Hood, and many other organizations in the tri-state region are organizing relief and cleanup efforts. If you're interested in learning more about how you can help, email us at info@85Broads.com.

Truly global: last week women joined 85 Broads from Athens, Amsterdam, Bogota, and Nans Les Pins, France. Welcome all! 

A new benefit of Power Circle membership: complimentary VIP tickets to terrific conferences!  Power Circle members recently attended the Bloomberg Markets 50 Summit, The Global Conference for Social Change, 2012 Diversity Conference, The World Business Forum, and SIFMA's annual meeting with Alan Greenspan and Mary Shapiro.  To learn more about Power Circle membership benefits, email mherrera@85broads.com.
