Each September, chapters across the country honor NeW’s Anniversary by hosting speakers, book club meetings, and recruiting dessert parties, and in Washington, DC, NeW hosts an annual Anniversary Celebration bringing together college students, young professionals, alumna, and supporters of the organization.
