Economic Development

The Economic Development Committee of the Winston-Salem Alumnae Chapter provides programs to assist chapter members and the community to start the journey to financial independence and economic empowerment. We also focus energy on Black owned businesses and support those also owned and operated by women. We engage the community by:

  • Planning projects and programs that create an awareness of factors that impact financial independence in the community and that develop activities to address these factors.
  • Presenting seminars and workshops on personal financial planning, procurement and entrepreneurship; helping students and parents applying for student aid, and managing and repaying student debts.  
  • Researching, compiling, and disseminating financial resources available to members in the community and online.  
  • Collaborating with agencies to assist the community in pursuing and securing home ownership. 


 The Winston-Salem Alumnae Chapter’s goal is to impart knowledge of fiscal accrual, management, and responsibility. We seek to empower our communities through financial workshops, seminars for first time home buyers, preparation of wills, financial planning, entrepreneur seminars, and community economic resources. 

The Economic Development Committee addresses issues concerning: 

  • Financial Planning
  • Consumer Education
  • Investments
  • Entrepreneur workshops
