Network of Entrepreneurial Women (NEW) is an independent, non-profit organization founded to encourage and support self-directed, entrepreneurial women and their businesses. NEW was founded in 1986. Since that time NEW has supported hundreds of professional women in an array of fields, among them: retail sales, health care, counseling, banking and finance, high tech and computing, marketing, printing, real estate, law, insurance, personnel, and business services.
We welcome women in all fields and endeavors to be part of a supportive group to further their goals, whether they are entrepreneurial business owners, professionals pursuing a career, or simply women wishing to explore, expand, and enhance their lives and environments. We invite you to become part of this growing membership and to discover the benefits for you and your business.
Who says you can't mix business with pleasure? Monthly dinner meetings serve as our primary gathering, where fine food and socializing add to an informative evening filled with business networking opportunities and inspiration. Dinner meetings include:
Speakers and Presentations
Speakers include nationally known figures and authors in addition to local business people and educators. Occasionally a panel may be invited to discuss issues of particular interest to Central Oregonians. Topics include a mix of both professional and personal issues--from finances to Feng Shui; from employee management to health care management. Our goal is to always present engaging, educational, motivational, and entertaining themes that benefit the needs of our members.
