Fourth year ahead for Comox Valley networking women

The Comox Valley Women's Networking Group is heading into its fourth year this fall.

The Comox Valley Women’s Networking Group is heading into its fourth year this fall.

This business women’s networking group is unusual because of its informal nature.

“The group was started by Mona Warren who has recently moved to Calgary,” explains Beth Campbell Duke, the group’s new organizer. “Mona’s vision was to create a monthly opportunity for local businesswomen to meet in an informal social setting without worrying about having meeting fees, an agenda or having to pay dues.

“We meet every third Wednesday of the month at the White Spot on Cliffe Avenue. All we ask is that those attending RSVP so the White Spot can set tables accordingly and plan ahead for staffing.”

Local women in business can get onto the group’s mailing list at http://CampbellDuke.com/comox-valley-networking-lunch. Once you’re on the list you’ll receive a monthly email reminder that also includes a personal branding tip.

The group also has a Facebook page (Facebook.com/CVWNG) where members can post information and news items about their businesses.

The next meeting falls on Sept. 19. Registration is open at CampbellDuke.com.
