Nothing-but-Networking September Luncheon

Scholarship recipientsnetworking activitiesFor September’s Women’s Business Network (WBN) luncheon, we met at The Hub at Corporate Alliance on September 8th for our ever-popular Nothing-but-Networking event.  The luncheon began with an opportunity to meet this year’s WBN scholarship recipients, Shanie Bushman and Tiffany Peterson.

Networking activities had everyone discussing shoes owned, books read, sports played, soda pop addictions, and more.  It was fun to see new friendships developing and the number of people who were able to connect professionally as well.
