July WiN Meeting - Thursday, July 5th

Hello Ladies!

Believe it or not it's that time again!  Our July WiN meeting is Thursday, July 5th.  Our guest speaker is me, Heather Chapman, and I will be talking about "Branding your Business in Print and Web".  Please let me know if you are planning to attend. Full details below.

Please Note:  Our August meeting is being held at Deer Run Golf Course on Elm Tree Road just 10min south of Lindsay.  Think about booking the afternoon off and, after the meeting, shooting 9 holes of golf on a very "forgiving" course.  I have no doubt it will be a fun afternoon.  If you are interested in golfing after the meeting please let me know and I will block off some tee-off times so that we're all together. (9 holes - $20, Push cart - $4, Power cart - $18). Note: if you're up for it, the course is very "walkable".

Looking forward to seeing all of you on Thursday!

Warm regards,

Membership Added Value

At the last meeting I introduced some "Added Value" for our WiN members.  This is something that I hope to expand upon over the upcoming months.

1. Business Cards - $35 (plus shipping $ taxes). Printed full colour, both sides, on 16pt coated stock.  Orders must be received by Friday, June 22nd. Orders will be distributed at the July WiN meeting.

2. WiN Postcard - 1000, 5x7, full colour postcards will be distributed to market our group and drive potential customers and members to our website.  Advertising spots are available but they are going fast! Please let me know if you are interested in placing your ad on the July postcard.  These postcards will be printed on a quarterly basis which means they will be in circulation for 3 months. They will be distributed via our members and through local organizations like the Chamber of Commerce.  I have included a sample below of what the post card will look like as well as what ad spots are available.

I look forward to seeing everyone at the July meeting. If you have any questions please give me a call or send me an email and I will respond as soon as I can.
