Prince William Chamber Continues Women’s Leadership Series
Announces Two Luncheons for Women in Business
Prince William, Virginia – The Prince William Chamber of Commerce is hosting two luncheons, one in August and one in September, for women in business. The luncheons are part of the Chamber’s Women’s Leadership Series which includes events throughout the year geared toward celebrating and cultivating the success of women in business. Now in its third year, the series is sponsored by QMT Windchimes.
The first event is on Wednesday, August 20 at 11:30 a.m. and features Prince William County Attorney Angela Horan speaking on the topic “Becoming a Women of Influence.” Horan will share her leadership philosophy and the personal and professional experiences that have helped her become a woman able to impact the world around her for the better. The luncheon will be held at BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse at the Promenade at Virginia Gateway in Gainesville (13930 Promenade Commons St, Gainesville, VA 20155).
A second luncheon is planned for Tuesday, September 23 at Travinia Italian Kitchen and Wine Bar in the Potomac Town Center in Woodbridge (15001 Potomac Town Center, Ste 100, Woodbridge, VA 22191). The September luncheon, sponsored by Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center, features guest speakers Rebecca Zuurbier, MD and Negar Golesorkhi, MD. Together they will cover “Advances Being Made in the Diagnosis and Treatment of Breast Cancer,” an area in which they specialize.
Continuing the series in November, the Chamber will host the “For the Girls” Networking Night Out and then finish up with the centerpiece of the series: The Prince William Chamber Women’s Leadership Conference, which will be held on February 12, 2015. Details about the Women’s Leadership Series and more offerings by the Chamber can be found at www.pwchamber.org.
“Today more than ever before, we are seeing a surge of women stepping forward into leadership roles. That is why the Chamber is so pleased to offer this series that supports women in business with learning and leadership development opportunities,” said Debbie Jones, President & CEO of the Chamber. She went on to say, “Not only are these events valuable because of the information they provide, but also because they offer opportunities to socialize with and encourage one another, tapping into that sense of community women really crave. Connectedness can be difficult to find in the Northern Virginia Marketplace, but that is part of a Chamber’s job. It’s a role we are happy to fill.”
Tickets to both the August and September Luncheons are $35/members and $45 for future members. Registration is available online at www.PWchamber.org or by calling 703-368-6600. Interested parties may also sign up for updates on the Women’s Leadership Series at www.PWchamber.org.
