On March 4 at 7:30 am at the BB&T Center, Democratic National Committee Chair and Florida Congresswoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz will be the keynote speaker at this year’s Annual Women of Distinction Breakfast.
The event will honor 10 extraordinary South Florida women for their professional achievements and community contributions.

On January 4, 2005, she was sworn in as a member of the United States House of Representatives. Rep.

“We are thrilled that the Congresswoman will be joining our honorees this year and providing the keynote address.
