JANUARY CHARITY

One of the unique features of BWN is that we are ACTIVE supporters of our Howard County community. Not only do our members support each other as women in the business world, but we also harness the collective power of our membership to support the vital service work of various local organizations -- every month.

This month, help us support Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center. 

During our January meeting, we will be collecting 

  • Baby Wipes
  • BODY Wash
  • BODY Lotion


UPDATED SNOW POLICY
Business Women’s Network of Howard County thanks you for understanding the complexities of hosting events of the magnitude to which we have grown. This also applies to inclement weather. Here are a few points you should know:

  1. Venues that are large enough to accommodate our group have different snow policies than smaller venues. As such, we will no longer be able to follow Howard County Public School System’s delays and closures.
  2. BWN will endeavor to have our event regardless of the weather.
  3. In the event that Turf Valley Resort cancels our luncheon, we will notify you by email, social media, and on the BWN-hoco.com website, as soon as we receive notice of cancellation.
  4. Safety first. Please use your best judgment to determine if the roads are safe for you to travel. When in doubt, sit it out.
  5. As with all of our luncheons, the event will not be rescheduled and there will be no refunds. (In the very unlikely event the lunch is cancelled, the funds already collected will be donated to the BWN Scholarship Foundation.)

Thank you for your understanding and for being a valued member of Business Women’s Network of Howard County.
