Our board members are dedicated to the growth and success of our non-profit women’s business networking group. The board meets once a month. Each board member, with the help of a team, also dedicates approximately ten hours a month to meeting the goals and objectives of her chair. If you have any interest in joining the board or serving on one of the committees, please contact the Board Development Chair at [email protected] or any of our other board members.

Participating on the board is already deepening my connection to, and appreciation of our group, as well as strengthening my own business.

My position as Secretary involves taking minutes at the board meetings and being the liaison between the board and our venue. Being on the Board has given me an opportunity to deepen my relationships with other Board members while providing me with a broader understanding of all aspects of ConnectW. And the heightened visibility that comes with being a Board member has helped me increase my networking, build more friendships and grow my business.

My job as Treasurer is to help ConnectW continue to be a great organization. I provide analysis and recommendations regarding the annual budgets and monthly review reports. Numbers come so much easier to me than people especially when networking or selling are involved. Using my talent for just a few hours a month as part of the Board has helped bolster those areas that were once weak even as I’ve developed such special relationships.
