Action Plan

The Parry Sound Area Community Business & Development Centre endeavoured to address the requests and concerns of this very large business contingent; the area’s women entrepreneurs.

In the spring of 2006 the Georgian Bay Women’s Network was established, an Advisory Committee (comprised of a good cross-section of area business women) was struck, a plan of action was undertaken and a membership drive commenced. The reaction and appreciation from the area business women has been tremendous. Monthly meetings were held with avid interest and participation. As requested by the membership, the Network takes a hiatus during the busy summer season, but the Advisory Committee remains active assembling a schedule of seminars and events tailored to fulfill the requirements of area women in business.

Workshops / seminars are held each month, September through May inclusive. These are held at optimum times to garner maximum attendance, the timing being alternating luncheon or evening, as women entrepreneurs do not always have the advantage of a fill-in during the day and some have child care issues in the evening. Strategic seminars are held on weekends to attract as many participants as possible. A roster of dignitaries / presenters has been drafted and this list will expand as demand and availability are determined.
