What our Members say

I have to admit, The Link For Women is more of a feeling or a state of being, rather than a list of practical items.

For me, The Link For Women is a comfortable room, bringing together interesting and extraordinary women who offer friendly conversation and genuine interest. I find them all so interesting, and the breadth of their experience stimulating. It seems that the women who are members aren’t power networking to get ahead, but are enjoying the company of like-minded women.

Besides that wonderful feeling of belonging, the companion piece is the level of content presented at an event. I feel it is important to have topics that stimulate our thoughts, provoke our beliefs, and challenge us to take action; Presenters who inspire us, who share their battles and victories, their insight and challenges to touch this wonderful group of women. I believe that this is a key offering of The Link.

In the end, it all ties together. Content, presenter, members.
