(Denison, IA) - An upcoming event promises to provide both a fun and inspirational experience to honor local professional women in Crawford County. The Chamber & Development Council of Crawford County (CDC) has announced that its 2016 Women in Business Luncheon will be held on Wednesday, April 27th, 2016 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Cronk's Restaurant in Denison.
The theme for this year's event is "Passion & Perseverance" which will include a special presentation from guest speaker Shirley Phillips. "Shirley is very accomplished in her career and has made a huge impact in the industries where she has worked. We are thrilled to have her join us at our event,"Rachel Desy, Office Manager at the CDC stated. Guests will have the opportunity to network with Shirley and other successful women and will learn about ways to find inspiration for positive change in their own lives. This year's event will include a specially chosen meal, a small gift for each attendee and a chance to win door prizes.
"Our goal is to make this event both fun and inspirational, "Desy stated, "It is an opportunity for women to celebrate their own personal successes, whatever they may be, over the past year."
The CDC will be presenting two Women in Business awards including the "Emerging Woman in Business" and "Businesswoman of the Year." The first award celebrates a woman in Crawford County who has taken on a new leadership role or launched a new business, and has made a significant impact on the community. The "Businesswoman of the Year" award celebrates the achievements of an exceptional woman in Crawford County who has had a significant impact in business and in the community over the past several years and who also participates in volunteer activities, unselfishly contributing her time to a cause larger than herself. Nominations can be made by calling or emailing the CDC office by Friday, April 8th.
