Mentoring with a focus on giving topic of Women's Business Alliance program


Weatherford Democrat

— Zan Prince will present a Women’s Business Alliance program on mentoring with the focus on giving, sharing and helping to make each piece of the whole more successful, showing how that is an investment in each other and our community.

Sharing ideas with other professional women, providing women with referrals for a solution to a woman’s issue or helping a student see their full potential are all part of the mentoring that makes the community more successful. In all settings, sharing with each other and helping our neighbors grow is a benefit to all of us.

Women’s Business Alliance will host the Sept. 6 program at the Wild Mushroom Steak House, 1917 Martin Drive, in Weatherford. The luncheon is 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event sponsor is Rosemarie Swaim, of BenefitSmart. Reservation can be made at www.eastparkerchamber.com.

The luncheon cost is $15 for members of the WBA and $20 for non-members. The Women’s Business Alliance is a steering committee of the East Parker County Chamber of Commerce and meets the first Friday of each month for lunch. The WBA exists to provide women business professionals with resources and activities that foster personal development and growth in East Parker County business community and beyond. Dues are $50 annually and are separate from  Chamber member dues.
