Our Members Tell Our Story
"Joining IWF since 1986, I have had the opportunity to meet, inter-act, become friends and continue to be amazed at the inspiring women domestic & International members. Let’s continue to join hands and make our world a better one."
A new IWF NorCal member, Nakiye Boyacigiller, a dual member with IWF Turkey, met Valerie Corradini at a recent event, where they discovered Valerie would be traveling to Istanbul at the same time. They connected with Iffet Ozgonul, who is a co-founding member of the Turkey forum. Iffet owns one of the leading tour companies in Turkey and kindly showed Valerie and her guest the city. As Valerie noted on her return, her wonderful experience truly embodies the warmth and global connectivity of our IWF membership.
