The mission of the Barbara Hicks Geslock Women’s Forum is to provide a day of networking, workshops and lunch to benefit the women of the Fredericksburg area. Held in March, Women’s History Month, the Forum offers a host of workshops presented mainly by women of the community.
The women’s forum board is composed of three women from each of the sponsoring organizations who plan and direct the annual Women’s Forum day activities.. Members of the sponsoring organizations assist on Forum day by helping participants enjoy a memorable program. This community effort is unique in the area. In fact, women from around the state of Virginia and Maryland attend the forum each year. Several businesses donate items each year for Forum day in support of our mission to bring this special day to the women of this area. Now in its 33rd year, the Barbara Hicks Geslock Women’s Forum continues to grow and serve our community.
