WOMEN NETWORKING EVENT
Kimona Hanson of Greenburgh has been appointed to lead the Westchester County chapter of eWomenNetwork to assist area women in building business relationships and finding new ways to turn networking interactions into new clients and increased sales transactions. According to the Small Business Association, women are starting businesses at three times the rate of men in Westchester and account for more than two-thirds of the job market.,” said Kimona Hanson, eWomenNetwork’s Managing Director in Westchester County. “The Westchester County Chapter of eWomenNetwork focuses on the needs of these businesswomen. Our trademarked ‘accelerated networking’ expedites the process of building business connections and exchanging resources among other female business owners, entrepreneurs, and professionals. eWomenNetwork is a big business-booster,” she said.
“Now, more than ever, women realize that networking is a vital business skill,” said Sandra Yancey, Founder and CEO of Dallas-based eWomenNetwork. “Women network differently than men, just as we communicate differently. eWomenNetwork has created a relationship-building approach that honorshow women like to interact in business. We have created our own systems and strategies that produce the opportunities, results and revenue we women need to make our businesses grow and prosper.”
The Westchester County Chapter of eWomenNetwork now joins 118 other chapters throughout North America, each of which offers monthly Accelerated Networking™ events, as well as frequent Strategic Business Introduction workshops and “Breakthroughs over Breakfast” sessions, for its members and their guests.
The organization will hold their big launch tomorrow, December 10th from 5:30 PM to 8 PM at Rini’s in Elmsford. The cost for the dinner is $45. KimonaHanson@eWomenNetwork.com o4 646 314 1129.
SHOULD FT HILL ROAD BE ONE WAY?
There was some confusion yesterday. We are considering making only Ft Hill Road one way, not Underhill Road, one way. That was a recommendation from residents of Edgemont who participated in a walk on Ft Hill Road. We are reviewing other options including building a sidewalk on town right of way. Residents who live near the Ft Hill Road corridor who would like to be part of a working committee that will help us finalize plans to make the Ft Hill corridor safer for pedestrians are invited to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. A comprehensive traffic analysis will be completed before any decisions are made. We want to do this right and welcome community involvement.
