Women's Advisory Group Reception

What do you get when you mix confident handshakes, an art exhibit opening and a gathering of professional business women?

This past Saturday night, the Women's Advisory Group (WAG) invited business women entrepreneurs and business leaders for a networking opportunity. WAG founders include local business owners, Andrea Cook, Tina Fitch, Nancy Felde and Marianne Peters. This WAG board represents businesswomen of a variety of generations, coincidently raising daughters of all ages, and meet monthly to discuss topics that impact women in the workplace as well as career and business development.

The WAG mission? To encourage women entrepreneurs in their careers through sharing, networking and supporting. In attempt to reach out to the community and provide leadership opportunities and benefits to businesswomen, a women's networking wine and cheese reception took place over the weekend at The Midas Center's office in conjunction with inSPIRATIVE art gallery's opening night of Rococomance, an exhibit by artist Christopher Stackowicz.

Guests of all ages and professions attended, including business owners, directors, educators and more.

Freelance writer and business owner of "Workshops that Work," Carol Anders was the winner of the engraved business card holder that was given as a door prize. A selection of wine and artisan cheeses were available as well as great topics of conversation, new relationships and future lunch dates.

The Midas Center is pleased to host the event and is encouraged by the innovative business leaders in the community!
