West Kootenay Women in Business held a luncheon on Sept. 8 at the Fireside Inn in Castlegar. The topic of the event was marketing and social media and the speaker was Jenna Semenoff from The Seed Web Design Studio.

“We have a vision to grow a strong local network of knowledgeable and talented women from all walks of life, which we can look to for assistance and advice,” said Rebecca Vassilakakis,     “The group is designed for business owners, managers, employees, and women who dream of running their own business one day. The group recognizes that a local network is an invaluable asset and that an investment of time to attend a regular networking event will that asset as business relationships are created and ideas and experiences are shared to mutual advantage.”

The group meets on the second Thursday of each month from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m.

“These meetings will provide us with the opportunity to share ideas, chat, and learn from each other,” said Vassilakakis.  “Some of these meetings will have topical themes and/or presentations by members of the group or invited speakers.”

Upcoming luncheon topics include: Time Management, Information Technology, Interpreting and Using your Financial Reports, Shop Local, Business Planning, Green Initiatives, Broadband and Your Business and Human Resource issues.
