The South Dakota Center for Enterprise Opportunity (SD CEO), the women’s business center at Black Hills State University, will host the monthly Women in Networking (WIN) lunch at the Spearfish Holiday Inn Swarm Room Tuesday, April 9 from noon to 1 p.m.

WIN is a membership-based group that provides networking opportunities for women.  “Belonging to the WIN group adds a highlight to my day and is one of the best values for networking in a relaxed, social atmosphere. You meet new business professionals at each luncheon and when you leave you have met a new friend and know something about their business you didn’t know before,” says WIN member, Betty Wootten, Stec’s Advertising Specialties in Rapid City.

Meetings are held monthly on the second Tuesday. Members are welcome from any community in the Black Hills and may bring a door prize to promote their business.

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 be completed through online registration at www.BHSU.edu/SDCEO or by phone at (605) 642-6435.
