This year for many groups it is doubly significant and their work in a distanced world doubly important.

One of the groups in the area making important connections is Port Stephens Women in Business.

The group held their AGM last week and this was their first chance to meet face to face again since our world changed.

Their committee is made up of seven local businesswomen with their President, Fiona Brown, returning this year.

“I joined the group when I came to the bay 4 years ago as a way of meeting other women in the area.
“I joined to meet people.

“Throughout my life I’ve always had a volunteer hat on, and this was a way to do that.

“I believe in investing in a community.

“There needs to be a balance between giving and getting,” she said.

Although the group has reached their highest ever membership this year, with 64 paid members, Fiona says that it is the quality and not the quantity of their membership that matters.

They also offer corporate memberships aimed at giving female driven businesses access to the networking, events, offers and information they share.

The group aims this year to be the group that brings the most value to the women in business of Port Stephens.

Their tag line is “Connect, Inspire, Support” with a free ‘taste test’ for new members to ensure that the group is able to meet their needs.
