Where is Norwin you ask? Norwin is a combined word, derived from 3 neighboring communities in the area, Irwin, North Irwin and North Huntingdon Township. It is a thriving community with a robust business environment. Our members are great friends as well as great businesswomen.
Our chapter is always involved in the WBN events and has won awards in the Chapter Challenge, a contest run each year to promote chapter involvement. We have several members who are either present or past members of the board of directors.
We love helping each other build our businesses and encourage women, who have never belonged to a networking group, to visit us and learn the benefits of networking your own business through our organization.
Each year we choose a charity to support. One recent project has been donating money and purchasing clothes, shoes and other items for children placed in foster care. Another project that we participated in was supporting Sharing & Caring, a group from Jeannette PA that provides funds and other support to women undergoing treatment for breast cancer.
The Norwin Chapter is an active part of WBN. We meet the second and fourth Wednesday of each month at the Norwin Chamber of Commerce, Main Street, Irwin PA. The hour-long meeting begins at 8 am. Each member is given about 30 seconds to highlight her business. For about 15 minutes, one member has an opportunity to give us a “presentation” or additional information about what she does. Frequently, members will stay after the meeting closes for additional networking.
We would love to make your acquaintance! Please contact us with any additional questions you may have.
