The University of Chicago Women's Business Group Presents Their 4th Annual Networking Event 11/18/04

On Thursday, November 18th, our community partner, The University of Chicago Women's Business Group (UCWBG), will present their 4th Annual Networking Event, "Linking Professionals to Nonprofit Boards," at the Mid-America Club, featuring Susan Crown as the keynote speaker. Susan Crown, president of the Arie and Ida Crown Memorial Foundation, has been chosen as one of Chicago's 100 most powerful women and one of the 10 most powerful women in philanthropy. The program runs from 4:30-8:30 p.m. including pre-event breakout sessions, reception, keynote address and networking.

This pathbreaking event brings more than 60 nonprofit organizations seeking board members together with 300 or more women professionals who are interested in board service. It is the only event of its kind and it has become the flagship community service program of The University of Chicago Women's Business Group. Event sponsor this year is Hewitt Associates.

The Women's Presidents’ Organization is a co-sponsor of this wonderful program and I will be attending. WPO members receive a special discount due to our partnership and co-sponsor status but other interested attendees are free to register at a very affordable price.

This event is a great way for women executives to give something back to the community while building their own career and experience too. Can't beat the proverbial two birds with one stone! It proves to be one of our most successful events and draws hundreds of women to local nonprofits. This year we are focusing on improving board skills with our breakout sessions. Please spread the word!
