Workshops are intended to raise the level of ﬁnancial literacy in our community. Our primary goal is to address topics related to building individual economic wealth.
All of our monthly meetings have a strategic networking component. We believe that for individuals and entrepreneurs to grow, they need to develop relationships. We do this in a very informal, yet structured, manner while we enjoy learning from each other and expert speakers. Meetings take place the third Thursday of the month at different locations. The meetings are open to all individuals or organizations interested in the topics presented. Meetings cost non members $10.00 for refreshments and materials, while members' meeting fees are covered in yearly dues of $50.00.
We believe that raising entrepreneurship awareness and providing career choices needs to start at a young age.
