A Word From Our Section President

Greetings to each of you in the name of our Founder, Mary McLeod Bethune and all past leaders of the National Council of Negro Women, Inc. (NCNW). On behalf of the Dayton Section, I want to welcome you, and thank you for your interest in our website. We are incredibly pleased that you have taken the time to visit our site and learn more about NCNW and the Dayton Section. The Dayton Section – NCNW was chartered on April 2, 1957.

The Dayton Section of NCNW is focused on the mission of working to eliminate the issues happening in our communities. We are living in critical times, where actions are needed to make a difference for everyone.

​Our Section is actively involved with programs and projects related to issues of health, education, and economic empowerment in Montgomery County, Ohio, and the surrounding counties. Today, NCNW’s programs are grounded on a foundation of critical concerns known as “Four for the Future. NCNW promotes education with a particular focus on science, technology, engineering, and math; encourages entrepreneurship, financial literacy, and economic stability; educates women about good health and HIV/AIDS; promotes civic engagement and advocates for sound public policy and social justice.

We are invested in our youth, their personal development, and connecting them to their fullest potential. We are invested in our community and ensuring that everyone is treated with dignity and respect. We are invested in social justice and equality for all.

The Dayton Section of the NCNW cannot incorporate change without your help. Membership is critical for our continued success. We need your time, your talents, and prayers as we work to educate our youth, support our seniors, and empower our communities.  I invite you to join us in serving our communities as we make strides towards improving the quality of life for all people.


Dr. Carmela G. Daniels

President, NCNW Dayton Section
