2017 – 2018 WBN Service Project

The Center For Women

Thanks to every person and chapter who has started to step forward to help chair a program or host a networking event! I hope to hear from more of you soon!

Gigi Chukwemzie (East) has expressed interest in co-chairing the January Home-Based and Network Marketing Business Roundtable event. We are seeking another co-chair for this program and then will begin to seek out participants.

Is your chapter interested in hosting a networking event for the Center For Women clients to meet your members and other women in business? Hosting these events entails rustling up your chapter members to attend that evening and providing refreshments for guests. All events are held at the Center for Women.

Open dates to be a Host Chapter are:
October 18, December 14, February 21, April 24, June 10 (a networking brunch)

We’d like to get the chapters for these set up as soon as possible, so if your chapter is interested please contact Berni Bishop.

We’d also like to hold a job and internship fair at the CFW on October 3, 2017. I’m seeking a WBN member to help chair this event with me and we welcome any WBN member who has a business or works for a company that is hiring part time or full time employees, or hires interns, to sign up to have a table at this fair. Please contact me at your earliest convenience to express your interest in co-chairing this event or to sign up to have a table. I’ll give you all the details.
