Join or Renew Membership

We're so excited that you have decided to join DAWN (or return for another year)!  We all have busy schedules so we know what it means to commit to DAWN.  Use our meetings as an excuse to take the night off of work, get away from the kids, put your priorities on hold, etc.  It's your time to reconnect with friends, learn about our community, and celebrate women.
