WHO WE ARE
The Potomac (VA) Chapter is a chapter of The Links, Incorporated, a national organization of over 10,000 professional women of color who are accomplished, dedicated and active in our communities. Link members are newsmakers, activists, role models, volunteers and mentors, joined in friendship and the goal of purposeful service. Through our 284 chapters in 42 states, The Links, Incorporated focuses on four primary areas of interest and service. The service areas are youth, national and international trends, and the arts.
The Potomac (VA) Chapter shares The Links, Incorporated's long tradition of advancing and engaging in our community’s educational, civic, and cultural life as a means to enrich the larger society. We are committed women who impact the greater Washington, D.C. area through distinctive service projects designed to enhance individuals, groups and our community’s quality of life.
The Potomac (VA) Chapter has been recognized at both the Area and National levels for outstanding programming. The Thirteenth National President, Gladys Gary Vaughn, is a current member and was the first chartering president of our Chapter. Lorethea Davis, a charter member, is the former Acting Executive Director of The Links Foundation, Incorporated. Members of the Chapter have served on Area and National Committees. Two members have served on the National Executive Council.
The Potomac (VA) Chapter is a willing collaborator with other area Links Chapters, participating in meetings of the Area Council, and in the activities of local chapters.
