Moving Forward with a Purpose: Empowering Communities and Shaping Lives while Strengthening B&P
Welcome to the website of the Northeast District (NED) of the National Association of Negro Business and Professional Women’s Clubs, Inc. (NANBPWC). Our association was founded in 1935, by seven visionary women with a mission of promoting the interests of business and professional women and our youth, improving the quality of life in our communities. Our association has seven geographic areas across the Unites States and has affiliates in Africa,
We are the mighty Northeast District, a 501(c)3 established in 1959. Our geographic area includes Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Northern New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont and the island of Bermuda. Our members who are from diverse backgrounds and professions, all work together to serve our community through participation in national, district and club programs, projects and initiatives.
We invite you to learn about our programs. We are committed to serving our communities through LETS – Leadership, Entrepreneurship, Technology and Service.

Hurricane Harvey Outreach
Dear Northeast District Sisters, Friends and Family,
Our sisters in the South Central District have experienced catastrophic losses in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. I have been in touch with Governor Maples, to let her know that the 61 club sisters, ombudsman and youth affected have been our hearts and prayers. I let her know that the Mighty Northeast District was ready to assist.
Governor Maples has informed me that there is an immediate need for funds and down the road they will need other items. She will keep us informed of their needs. The South Central District has initiated a SISTER ANGELS campaign to raise $6,100 from all districts to provide a $100 VISA gift card for each member affected. I am asking that you become their Sister Angels and assist them on their road to rebuilding their homes and lives. Read more.
