Who We Are
On June 5, 1982, the Dogwood City Chapter of the Links, Incorporated was officially installed and began its philanthropic and volunteer commitments with twenty-four charter members. Dedicated to the purpose of promoting and engaging in educational, civic, and intercultural activities, Dogwood City Chapter became the second chapter in the metropolitan Atlanta area.
Today Dogwood City Chapter has 80 members. Members are especially proud of their involvement in the activities that benefit primarily the City of Atlanta, but also reach beyond the continental USA. We are unified and strong in the knowledge that our membership in friendship and service can make a difference. The Dogwood City Chapter’s members are bonded by a chain of friendship and committed to improving the quality of life for others, particularly those of African descent.

I have met fabulous women who have become life-long friends. Our bond is strengthened by our shared interest in working together to positively impact the lives of others and the communities in which we live.
The friendships and sisterhood among our group of talented women is powerful and inspiring. The service done through our chapter not only benefits our community, in meaningful ways, it also broadens and strengthens our bonds of sisterhood.
I am proud to be a member of the Dogwood City Chapter of the Links, Inc. Respect for each and every sister is a tenant of our founders and charter members held dear and I am committed to honoring this value.
As a strong advocate for woman power and sisterhood, I truly enjoy the opportunity AND responsibility to serve and positively impact our communities with my dynamic Sister Links of Dogwood City Chapter!

I am so delighted and proud to be a founding and charter member of our great chapter. As I reflect on our zealous beginning over 35 years ago, the standards we set, and see the impact we have had on our Atlanta community, I am so proud! I am also very excited in anticipation of the heights that our new, young, bright and dynamic Links can help us reach!

My mother often says if you have one true friend in life, consider yourself blessed. As a member of Dogwood City, I am blessed nearly four score, as I am surrounded by sisterhood and support, the embodiment of true friendship.
The Dogwood City Chapter (GA) works to maintain its status and stature as a chapter that sets an example that is worthy of emulation. This chapter continues to write chapters that frame…the possible.
Membership in the DWC enabled me to build a strong and stabilizing foundation of friendships and community connections when I relocated to Atlanta. What a blessing!
