Independent Achievers (IA) is a Women’s Business Networking and Empowerment Group.
We are a little sad that nobody stepped up to take on the Chairperson position so the group could continue uninterrupted this year, but sometimes there are bumps in the road. The IA Group decided to approve the following motion, which was slightly amended from the previously discussed motion. It reads:
“Move to suspend the monthly meetings and newsletters for the Independent Achievers Group for one year, reconvening in May 2019 to discuss the future of IA and its financial assets. The website is to remain active, with no changes to members, signing authorities or bank account. IA social medias will continue to be updated regularly. There should be no expenses except to keep the website functional. We retain the option of holding the Christmas Adopt-A-Family Fundraiser luncheon for December 2018, should anyone in the group wish to organize it”
Continuing September 2019, we will meet on the second Thursday of each month (except July & August) in various locations around Red Deer, for a luncheon meeting. From 11:30-12:00 ladies arrive and socialize, 12:00-12:15 we have a short meeting, which is usually followed by a speaker on business women’s topics. Sometimes a networking activity will replace the speaker. At 1:00 pm many ladies need to leave, but for those who can stay, the venue is open for more networking/socializing. Luncheons include the meal, space conducive to networking for two hours, speaker or networking activity, self-introduction, toot for a toonie, and the share table.
