In order to work toward supporting and strengthening women in our community, providing opportunities to network, and professional development opportunities, we rely on our committees to organize events, engage with membership, fundraise, manage our scholarship program, and find impactful ways to participate in the community.

Members are invited to join a committee that meets their own personal vision and talents; we welcome all who want to be involved!

ATHENA Committee: Plans and hosts the ATHENA Awards Celebration, TBF's premier fundraising event. This committee also oversees the processes for nominating and selecting the ATHENA Award recipient according to the criteria established by the ATHENA Foundation.

Communications Committee: The Communications Committee is for you if you have a talent and passion for storytelling/writing, engaging an audience, graphic design, and/or all things social media. Through our social media platforms, as well as internal and external communications, this committee builds awareness of our group and its mission to support local women and create community impact through our philanthropic endeavors.

Community Investment Committee: The Community Investment Committee establishes criteria for our scholarship program and the recipient selection process. CIC is also responsible for planning and implementing the coordination of volunteer activities providing members additional opportunities to get involved in the community.
