Elevator Pitch Perfect

Elevator Pitch Perfect

At our meeting on October 10, 2019, every ZWIN member gave a 60-second elevator speech about her business to the group. It was a great way to learn about new members and be reminded of what old members are doing. Making the presentations was also a perfect way to practice for networking beyond our group.

Officer Announcements

VP Kathy Wood thanked us for the cards and meals she received following her knee surgery.

Nikole Robeson reminded us to get bios and photos to her so that she can keep the website up-to-date. Contact Evona Watson if you need a questionnaire to help complete your bio.

Upcoming Events

Town Employee Luncheon: October 24, 2019, from 11:30 to 1 p.m. in the Zionsville Town Hall. We will be hosting lunch for all the town employees, including the fire, police, parks, and mayor’s departments. Charlotte and Ellie are organizing this for us. They have sent a Signup Genius, so decide how you can help, whether it’s bringing a side dish, baking a dessert, setting up the buffet, or cleaning up. There may be up to 70 hungry guests, so bring generous portions! City BBQ will be the main course. Also, please bring your items in disposable dishes or plan to pick them up when the luncheon ends.
All are welcome to eat with the employees as we interact that day.

December service project: We would like to continue this tradition. If you know of a charity that would benefit from our help, let our board members know. Next month we will vote from the charities suggested.
