WASHINGTON, D.C. — Concerned Women for America (CWA), the nation’s largest conservative women’s organization with over 500,000 members, today announced the appointment of Penny Young Nance as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
“Penny will add new leadership, energy and creativity to our fine staff. Penny’s experience in public policy, media and leadership in the conservative movement fit perfectly with CWA’s ambitious plans for the coming decade,” said CWA’s Founder and Chairman Beverly LaHaye.
Wendy Wright, President of CWA stated, “Penny brings a wealth of experience, boundless energy, widespread connections and a deep commitment to Christianity and core American values. She is a perfect fit for expanding CWA’s impact for the good of our country.”
Beverly LaHaye will continue to guide CWA as Chairman of the Board of Directors. Concerned Women for America recently celebrated its 30th anniversary and looks forward to growing in both membership and political clout in the future.
“Today I join CWA’s Founder and Chairman Beverly LaHaye in the battle to preserve America’s founding principles. Together we are poised to build on CWA’s rich 30 year legacy and to make CWA an even more powerful and influential voice in the public square,” Nance said. “CWA’s dedication to being the voice for conservative American women and families is more crucial than ever before. We plan to fight to protect our children’s future both monetarily and culturally.”
Nance further noted, “CWA will continue to battle efforts to plunder the financial future of our children as well as the expansion of abortion and the coarsening of the culture. We are standing with American parents to preserve freedom and opportunity for the next generation.”
Mrs. Nance is the former President of Nance and Associates and recently served as special advisor on family policy to former to FCC Chairman Kevin Martin. In addition, she has served on CWA’s board and staff.
