Comox Valley Women’s Business Network hosts Valentine’s dinner

Comox Valley Women’s Business Network hosts a Valentine's dinner Feb. 14.

You have to do something special when your business meeting falls on Valentines Day, and that’s just what the Comox Valley Women’s Business Network will be doing Feb. 14.

That’s when the CVWBN will hold its monthly networking meeting — and they’ve made sure there will be wine and chocolate to go along with guest speaker Wendy Lewis.

“Our monthly meetings are always a great opportunity for local business women to meet, network and have fun,” says Tara Ladaroute, CVWBN president. “Valentines Day gives us a reason to make it even more fun.”

Dinner will include wine samples and a discussion of wine with local wine educator John Challender. Members and guests will appreciate Challender’s introduction to the tasting and appreciation of wine. The meal will wrap up with a sampling of chocolates from Cumberland’s On the Dark Side of Chocolate.

The evening will end with a presentation by Lewis, a chartered accountant and business advisory. Lewis will be presenting how and when to incorporate your business. She will discuss her many years of advising business owners and helping them prepare their businesses for the future.

The meeting will start with networking at 5:30 p.m. at the Best Western on Cliff Avenue in Courtenay. Dinner is $25 for members and $40 for guests.
