Editor, The Times:
North Thompson Women in Business (NTWIB) was established in 2013 as a not-for-profit organization.
It was created in order to give a voice to Clearwater and district businesswomen, whether they be professionals, run their own businesses, are thinking about starting a business or work for others.
Our aim is to offer as many networking opportunities as possible to all women and to promote one another’s businesses. We hold interesting and enjoyable social events where both members and the general public are welcome to attend.
We have numerous guest speakers and offer provocative thinking, innovative business ideas, and workable solutions. Have your most pressing business challenges, concerns, and questions addressed in our open forum. Exchanging ideas and insights.
New changes for our meeting – we will meet every second month (last Monday) during November, January and March. New hours will be 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. at the Wells Gray Inn. Drop in fee is $2 and you purchase your own refreshments and dinner.
We also host a very affordable website for things to do and offered in the North Thompson Valley (Barriere to Valemount): www.thingstodonorththompson.com. Like us and advertise on our Facebook site: North Thompson Businesses.
We are currently working on hosting a Home and Garden Expo to be held in April, 2018. This will be open to all businesses from Kamloops to Valemount.
The Expo will be open to all sectors of businesses, such as outdoor activities, retail, home-based, Internet, spa’s, artisans, crafters, auto shops and so much more.
We are working on the location, date and costs. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We will be working with the Barriere Star Journal, the Clearwater Times, posters and social media to advertise the event.
Looking forward to seeing you,
