Welcome to the Career Women's Network

Welcome to cwnmacon.org, home on the World Wide Web for the Career Women's Network of Macon, Georgia!

Career Women's Network of Macon is an organization whose purpose is to bring together women of achievement and influence to network ideas, experiences, and resources, and to solidify relationships that can enhance the image and effectiveness of women.

Career Women's Network of Macon aims to provide a strong network of professional contacts. The organization promotes and encourages members to become effective and visible community leaders; it also supports continuing education and professional development of women. One of the main objectives is to acknowledge the achievements and contributions of professional women in the community.

We invite you to visit us or attend an event. Our members are more than happy to answer any questions you may have about the organization and how you can join.



The concept of Career Women's Network of Macon originated with the Women in Management Committee of the Greater Macon Chamber of Commerce.

According to members of the Committee, such a group would afford an opportunity for "Macon business and professional women" to gather for a regular luncheon, communicate with each other and hear a speaker talk on a topic of interest or concern.

In order to broaden the scope of the group, the Committee decided to make Career Women's Network of Macon an autonomous organization with its own set of by-laws and procedures.  CWN was founded in 1981 and was incorporated December 9, 1982 with Joanna Watson as the first President of CWN. The very first CWN meeting was held on October 9, 1982. The organization currently operates through an 18 member Board of Directors.

 Continued from CWN Newsletter...

     I have an incredibly kind, smart, and funny husband named Alan who always supports my big leaps of faith in my career and gives me sound advice and encouragement along the way. We have a 13 year old pup named Mini. My mom, Beth, is my rock and best friend and I wouldn’t be where I am without her daily selfless love and sacrifice for me. My siblings, Allyson and Clint, are hilarious and tough.

     I am blessed with great family, friends, and colleagues! Much of it is spent on activities at Maynard Baptist Church. I teach a class of Acteen girls (middle school students) and work on various outreach projects including “Go and Tell Day” and “May Day Pray Day” too. I also enjoy going to our lake house and riding on the boat, as well as watching movies. I was thrilled to be invited by April Mouton Beal from the Methodist Children’s Home. It took me a few months to submit my membership application, but it was wonderful to join and be surrounded by so many amazing professional women.  

     When asked if she were mentoring someone, what is the most important advice she would give them regarding achieving professional success, Julie replied, “Dress for the job you want, not the job you have.Learn to work efficiently and stay organized. Set small and large goals for your career, but don’t rush it…God’s got this and knows your path long before you do. Focus on Him and listen for His direction.”
