The Professional Women's Business Network (PWBN) is a non-profit group established to bring together businesswomen who are looking to network and share their expertise with other diverse businesswomen. Due to the slow economy, the Professional Women's Business Network has delayed instituting membership fees through December, 2011. PWBN will be undergoing a facelift in the next few months with a new website, sponsorship and advertising opportunities, and two annual Expos featuring our sponsors and members from all PWBN groups. Our current members are encouraged to introduce the group to other women who may benefit from our monthly meetings. If you would like to receive email invitations to our upcoming events, please go to the Contact Us page on this site, and provide your name and contact information. Each meeting features introductions and roundtable discussions. Our meetings are by invitation only because the venues have limited seating. Please visit this website to view our monthly newsletter and upcoming events. We welcome short articles of interest for the monthly newsletter, as well as, notifications of events that may be of interest to the group.
I have met some amazing women through this group who have taken an active interest to share their expertise. In our third year, the Professional Women's Business Network has grown substantially with over 1100 affiliate women professionals from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. I am excited to see our membership growing every month, and it is my pleasure to provide this website which features a monthly newsletter, member directory, discount offers, and other areas of interest. I encourage everyone in our group to submit Articles of Interest for the monthly newsletter which will be shared with other members of the group.
Sponsorships and Advertising
If you are interested in sponsoring this group, kindly visit our "Contact Us" page and we will discuss a variety of sponsorship options. In addition, we have instituted a new advertising program. Advertising fees are extremely economical, and your advertising sponsorship will support a wonderful program for women start-up businesses. A portion of the proceeds from our advertising sponsors will be donated to the PWBN Foundation. This Foundation will fund a special program that will provide annual awards for women who are seeking seed money to start-up their own business. If you are looking to start a new business, and would like to submit an application for funding from the PWBN Foundation, go to the Contact Us page on this website and provide your contact information along with a request to be contacted when the funding program begins. We will forward applications for Award consideration Spring, 2012.
