About the NCBWL
The NCBWL was formed in 1949 by a small group of young women, who, at the time, were primarily secretaries and saleswomen. Its purpose then was to support, encourage, and promote Catholic women in the workplace and elsewhere. The League continues to pursue this purpose and has evolved and grown to reach a broad audience.
Who are we?
We are a diverse group of Catholic women from communities throughout
the surrounding Nashville area.
We possess a variety of professional, volunteer, and other life experiences supporting each other through our friendship and faith. Our membership includes health care professionals, accountants, human resource managers, veternarians, artists, writers, attorneys, teachers, administrators, paralegals, entertainers, financial and banking professionals, homemakers, business owners, retail professionals, government employees, volunteers, and others.
We network, mentor, and raise funds for scholarships benefiting local female students.
We are wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, and friends, of all ages.
We have quarterly communions, day trips, fundraisers, retreats, and a Christmas dinner.
We have regular meetings the 3rd Wednesday of the month at the University Club on Garland Avenue in Nashville. Networking with a cash bar begins at 5:30 p.m., dinner at 6:00 p.m., a featured speaker at 7:00 p.m. and the evening closes with a short business meeting.
