The South Dakota Center for Enterprise Opportunity (SD CEO) at Black Hills State University, will host the monthly Women in Networking (WIN) lunch at the Spearfish Holiday Inn Swarm Room Tuesday, Nov. 8 from noon to 1 p.m.

WIN is a membership-based group that provides networking opportunities for women. “Attend these meetings to see how it can help you to succeed in personal or business growth by networking,” says Helen Merriman, director of the SD CEO located on the BHSU campus. Meetings are held monthly on the second Tuesday.

No commitment to membership is needed to attend the first meeting. Registration for each monthly meeting is $15 and includes lunch. Membership is $40 and can also be completed through online registration at www.BHSU.edu/sdceo or by phone at (605) 642-6435.

The SD CEO is funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Association (SBA), and is part of a network of more than 110 centers nationwide established through the SBA’s women’s business funding. While services are available to all those interested in entrepreneurship, there is a special emphasis on women, women veterans, Native Americans, the socially and/or economically disadvantaged, and youth entrepreneurs.
