Third Anniversary Celebration Thanks

I want to extend a huge Thank You to all the businesses below who submitted items for our December luncheon. It was our Third Anniversary Celebration and each attendee left with a gift bag with the contents below.

Thanks, not only to the donors, but also to all the attendees of the luncheon over the past 3 years. We have really grown from the 5 of us sitting at the Tavern in 2005. Our mailing list is over 450 business women. In 2008, 161 different women attended one of our events.

Immediately Impressed

Laura and Michele, thank you to you both for establishing, organizing and running such a great group. I attend many networking events and have only had the pleasure of attending one Great Falls Women’s Business Luncheon but it will be the first of many to come! I was immediately impressed by the structure and size of the group, the way the meeting is run, the opportunity given to showcase our businesses, and the the chance to support other women in business we have worked with in the past.

Thanks again … I’m looking forward to next month.

A Wide Variety of Successful Area Business Women

GFWBL attracts a wide variety of successful area business women. Laura’s excellent event planning skills are evidenced by how well organized and executed the luncheon is. She is a first-rate host. There is ample time to network, talk with vendors, and learn about the services and products each attendee has to offer, all in a relaxed and enjoyable setting. The food is delicious; vegetarian alternatives are offered for those who have special dietary needs.

Feeling Encouraged and Having Made Many New Contacts

Thank you, Laura, for putting together a wonderful opportunity for women to meet other business women.  I have been coming to the Great Falls Women’s Business Luncheon for several years.  I come away from the luncheons not only having had a wonderful meal prepared by the chef at the Country Club but feeling encouraged and having made many new contacts.

Great place for networking

The Great Falls Business Luncheon provides a great place for networking and building those business relationships. The venue has changed a few times, but the ladies who run it, Laura & Michele, haven’t & they take good care of us! From finding opportunities to give back to the community, mini trade shows, & everything in between. If you’re interested in networking with women who want to do business, you should check us out the 2nd Wednesday of each month :)
