# Chapter Organizer

Our History

The North Broward County Chapter of The Links, Incorporated had its beginning in 1990 when three friends, Dorothy Ruffin, Margaret Roseburr and Gloria Butler (who has since moved away from the area) voiced their concerns about issues affecting the Northern Broward community.  


These three dedicated women  realized that the majority of services and civic organizations emanated from the central area of Broward County. 


 They found themselves constantly commuting to central Broward in order to participate in organizations and events which impacted the lives of African Americans.


Perceiving that there were enough concerns to be addressed within their own community, this original group invited other women with similar feelings and experiences to join them. They organized as the North Broward Women’s Group.  The North Broward Women’s Group met monthly to plan and implement various successful projects.  This committed, progressive group of ladies recognized the need to affiliate with a prominent national organization in order to be more effective.  


In May 1995, the North Broward Women’s Group was chartered as a chapter of  The Links, Incorporated.


The Chapter continues to sustain the vision of its founding members and to fulfill the legacy of  The Links, Incorporated, by promoting friendship and providing service in the community.
