From our President:
On behalf of the members of the Pontchartrain (LA) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated, it is an honor to welcome you to our website. As you peruse our site, you will see information on our award-winning programs and community outreach initiatives that are incorporated within our five facets: The Arts, Services to Youth, National Trends and Services, International Trends and Services and Health and Human Services. Our chapter utilizes funds acquired through its fundraising activities, as well as, grants and community partnerships, to support its various programs and activities. Our chapter collectively provides over four thousand hours of service annually in an effort to make a difference.
We are proud to be included in the over 15,000 women from 288 chapters located in 42 states, the District of Columbia, The Commonwealth of the Bahamas, and the United Kingdom.
Our membership of 55 active members include women who have demonstrated leadership in a variety of professions, which include education, entrepreneurship, social science, health and
medicine, journalism, philanthropy and the law. All are civic-minded, caring, and committed to enriching the lives of others and working together toward achieving a common goal while being "Linked in Friendship, Connected in Service." It is with great pride that I lead this extraordinary chapter of talented and committed women who have never been afraid to put "boots on the ground" when it comes to supporting our community and each other.
