Do you have ideas for topics for luncheons or networking sessions? Join the Program Committee and get involved. The Program Committee is responsible for booking the speakers for the monthly luncheons and pick venues for the Imaginary Book Club.

The Membership Committee is all about ensuring that new members feel welcome and are aware of how the SWN operates along with what opportunities are available to members for business promotion and networking.
- Meetings will take place monthly or bi-monthly dependant on need.
- Committee members are assigned new members to personally contact and welcome them and ensure they are comfortable within the SWN format and activities.
This committee offers a great opportunity for both experienced and new members to build relationships with other members on a more personal one to one basis.
Communications / Website
We insure information is timely and up to date on the website, our e-newsletter and social media by liaising with other committees and our members. Our committee is composed of members who like to participate with other committees and attend their meetings so we can update the website accordingly. Most especially, we like to have someone sitting on the membership, vacation dinner, program and special events committees. If you are interested in having a very comprehensive knowledge of SWN and their members, this is a great committee to be on.
