Spring Hats Luncheon: The Women’s Leadership Committee held an exclusive Spring Hats Luncheon at the Hay-Adams Hotel on April 18, 2017.

About the Women's Leadership Committee

In 2007, a small group of dynamic women formed the Women's Leadership Committee of the Trust for the National Mall. The first benefit event they sponsored was a luncheon in a small tent on the National Mall. Ever since that first event, the Women's Committee has been a driving force in advocating for the mission of the Trust.

The Women's Committee provides the energy and creative input needed to execute world class events and garner the prestige and attention our National Mall deserves. Members help to grow the Committee and are ambassadors for the Trust for the National Mall.
