WRISE is an organization powered by volunteers and dedicated staff.

This vast network of volunteers includes our Board of Directors, our chapter leaders, and out national committee members – building community, promoting education, and cultivating leadership at a variety of a levels.


The network of WRISE chapters began from one voice at our 2006 luncheon and grew organically into over 35 chapters around the US and Canada.
