There’s no shortage of opportunities to get involved in after being confirmed as a new EWL member and attending orientation. EWL is a "choose your own adventure" type of group, and committee leaders, TEMPO staff and fellow EWL members can help you navigate the combination of activities that work best with your schedule and desired engagement level.  

Included in the EWL annual dues fee of $435:


  • Program Meetings featuring high-caliber community leader speakers including guest speakers, TEMPO members and fellow Emerging Women Leaders, exclusively for our Emerging Women Leaders members.
  • Professional Development Series featuring hands-on workshop style training for TEMPO, EWL members and teams.
