The North American Division (NAD) Administrative Committee recently voted to adopt and endorse the Adventist Women Leaders initiative.
What started with a lunch for 15 women gathered in a conference room at the NAD Year-end Meeting in October 2017, has grown to more than 180 subscribers to an email newsletter published twice a month.
