The Charter 100 is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization for professional women of outstanding accomplishment who are past, present and future leaders in their respective discipline.

The purpose of Charter 100 is to identify and bring together business, professional and civic leaders to build and foster a network of communication. Through programs on timely issues and speakers of national prominence, Charter 100 seeks to enlighten and to inform its members, as well as provide an open forum for the exchange of ideas.



The idea of Charter 100 was born in California in 1978. A small group of high-caliber women from diverse fields gathered for an informal lunch and found their sharing ideas and information to be so valuable that they decided to form an organization to bring them together regularly. As the concept developed, it became clear that Charter 100 would best suit its purpose as a professional network if its membership was limited and its standards high. Chapters of Charter 100 soon developed in San Diego, Orange County, Dallas, Phoenix, Houston (affiliate), Mexicala and here in Washington, DC.
