Lunch Policies

Luncheon Policies/ Format

The monthly luncheon is the second Friday at Tanoan Country Club. Networking begins at 11:30am with the formal program at 11:45am. Specified “table networking” time is built into the agenda with more opportunities to network directly following the event.  We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming luncheon—a few tips below:

  • The main objective is to meet new people and make new contacts
  • Come for lunch when it fits your schedule—always the 2nd Friday of each month
  • Receive timely e-blast announcements about upcoming events
  • Content rich presentations full of relevant information for personal and professional growth
  • Network with other women business owners and entrepreneurs
  • You’ll love the exciting energy, impactful stories, and friendly camaraderie

Bring a Door Prize and Other Literature to Publicize Your Company

  • We encourage you to bring a door prize to help publicize your company. After the conclusion of the speaker’s presentation, we will draw an attendee’s business card for each door prize, announcing the name and company of the donor. You can bring samples, gift certificates, or even a bottle of wine
  • No restrictions on door prizes – the more the merrier! Be sure to attach your business card as you will be asked to stand and be acknowledged for bringing a prize
  • Please refrain from offering a “discount” where someone must buy from you to receive the “prize”
  • Understand we do use an agenda. We make every attempt to start & end on time. Our suggestion would be to not schedule yourself too tight so you can enjoy the networking when the event is over
  • Only the speaker or sponsors may put something at each place setting; you can pass items at the table where you sit to share at the specified “table networking” time
  • Feel free to bring product, literature, community events, etc. to display at the community networking table
