This one action-packed day is designed for women business owners by women business owners, and we assure you – it is not just another meeting.

The day’s program focuses on specific feedback and requests from current Chapter Leaders: sharing best practices, learning the resources available from National, and training to make you a stronger leader in your local chapter and in your business.

All Chapter Leaders, board members, future board members and committee members are invited and encouraged to attend.
