WFFC Annual Business Meeting

On Wednesday, January 14, 2015 the New Jersey Chapter of the WFFC held its Annual January Business Dinner at Boulevard 572 in Kenilworth, NJ with 55 attendees. The 2015 Board of Directors took the official oath and were proudly sworn in to serve for another year. The meeting was a throwback to the original purpose of this event, which was to educate, engage and empower WFFC members and prospective members. Networking was the theme of the evening with a simple, but clever exercise. Upon arrival, each attendee filled out an index card with three personal attributes about themselves not including their name or any physical characteristics. Then attendees each drew a random card and through conversation with as many people as possible, they were responsible for finding the person whose card they had drawn. During dinner each attendee shared who they met and a few attributes about them. This interactive event encouraged all 55 women to get to know each other and hone their networking skills. The attendees enjoyed the cocktail hour mingling followed by a delicious family style dinner. The WFFC is thankful to all attendees for their support.
