Learn to belly dance at WBN meeting

Elaine De Rooy is guest speaker at March 14 meeting

The Comox Valley Women’s Business Network is hosting a meeting Wednesday, March 14 at the Black Fin Pub, lower level, at the marina in Comox.

There will be networking from 5:30-6, followed by dinner, spotlight speakers and the educational portion until approximately 8:30 p.m.

The guest speaker will be Elaine De Rooy, professional belly dancer, performer, teacher, and owner of Belly Laughs Navel Academy. She will teach the group the fine art of belly dancing — providing routines that are classy and a little bit sassy, to help relieve stress, improve fitness and simply have fun. She will also share her experiences related to starting a business —lessons learned and laughs along the way.

Spotlight speakers, who profile their businesses and share stories about their own journeys to success, are CVWBN members Carol Elliott of 12 Yellow Aprons and Cheslea Bell of Open Connection.

The buffet dinner, networking, and educational program provided that evening requires pre-registration by March 11. The fee for members is $35. Non-members are $40.

Guests should bring business cards for the networking portion of the meeting. They are also invited to bring a door prize.

The CVWBN was established in 1991 and is going strong with 50 members.

Comprised of local business and professional women, the organization provides a monthly meeting from September to June. This group includes entrepreneurs and professionals from nearly all sectors of the economy.

Basic membership is $175 per year, with upgraded memberships available.
