WIBWB: Revamped for 2019

 

Since 2011, Amherst & Sackville have had an informal network of over 170 women who are entrepreneurs, offer professional services and make our communities great. We want to revitalize our mission to support women in business by heading into 2019 with plans to better serve Women in Business in our region:

-Launch new site (Welcome!)

-Build Membership + Be more open to the public

-Create a membership directory to help promote and support women in business in Nova Scotia & New Brunswick

Survey our members regularly to serve our community better!

-Engage on social media through twitter and our new facebook page. (Though you may still access us through our closed Facebook group)

-Continue hosting luncheons every third Wednesday (Except in June and December)

-Showcase our members on our site, at our meetings, and on social media.

-Allow members & public to pay via e-transfer.

-Re-brand!

 

Our previous branding looked something like this:


Our working group asked that we have a new brand that represents how women in business are multi-tasking super heroes, and suggested a particular image:

We’ll be launching our full calendar in early 2019, and our next luncheon is Apps for Productivity January 16th at Patterson’s Restaurant in Sackville.* Hope to see you there!



*Our lunch is $20 and our (business deductable!) annual membership fee is $150 (tax incl).
