Chapter Named Chapter of the Year for Second Time in Five Years
The chapter was excited to be named Chapter of the Year in the Small-to-Medium Chapter category. The award was announced at the 2018 Boston Summit. It was the second time in five years that the chapter was considered the best chapter in the world, and the sixth straight year in which the chapter was a finalist for the award.

Dos Santos serendipitously joined the Connecticut Westchester table at the Global Awards & Recognition Dinner, and her former company, Liberty Financial Services, which she was representing, received the Global Innovation Award (she didn’t know she was receiving the award until it was announced). She celebrated with the chapter and was welcomed as a “forever friend” of the Connecticut Westchester chapter.
