Privileged Access


"Privileged Access" allows our members to see “behind the scenes”, to learn how each business operates, what products and services they offer, what markets they serve, how they contribute to the community and what qualifications people need to have in order to be considered as potential employees.

"Privileged Access"events support our objective of getting to know, like and trust our fellow members.

If you are interested in holding a "Privileged Access" event, please contact one of the board members with your proposal, including the date and time! Events will be coordinated on a first come, first serve basis.

Each event will be open to all members, and to women who are interested in becoming a member! 

This is  a FREE Event, but registration will be required for snack/beverage purposes
