The volunteerism, work ethic and passion demonstrated by members, both new and seasoned, has provided NCBW the opportunity to bridge some of the challenges of  inter-generational gap in the national organizations. NCBW CMS Chapter is driven by a committee structure with progressive and compassionate programs, events and activities. Members on the committees — Education, Arts and Culture, Economic empowerment, Health Initiatives, Public and Governmental Advocacy, Leadership Development, and Civic and Community Services — initiate and develop programs that respond to the specific needs of our broader community.
