In 1987, a group of women from diverse business and professional backgrounds met to discuss the possibilities for developing a networking organization. After defining initial goals and objectives, the core group invited other women to join the endeavor. The first formal meeting of Coastal Women's Forum was held in the spring of 1988. Membership has grown steadily and continues to grow. The organization today attracts women from a variety of professions and occupations.
