Charter Members

Mrs. Margaread White, founder of the Central Jersey Club, was the motivating force behind the organization of a group of eighteen women being chartered under the NANBPWC, Inc. This timely event occurred on October 1, 1964, thereby bringing into the fold of business and professional women a group dedicated to the improvement of social and civic conditions – a service organization. 

All rights and membership privileges of the National Association were granted the following Charter Members – Dorothy Brown, Alice Brickler, Gladys Byers, Castle Greer, Louise Hughes, Pearl Harris, Greta Butler, Marion Lyons, Valarie Hinton, Mariagnes Lattimer, Sarah McGee, Elsie Netter, Gloria Quails, Shirley Williams, Catherine Darby, Mildred Baird, Julia Ransom, and Margaread White. 



The Central Jersey Club of NANBPWC, Inc. has received significant awards/recognition during its history. Most recently, the club was the recipient of the 2020 "Community Service Award", presented by the City of Asbury Park, New Jersey. The club was honored for over fifty years of dedicated community service and programming.
