SYCAMORE – Kishwaukee Women’s Network is kicking off its 2013 year with "Negotiating from a Woman’s Advantage," presented by Catherine Lee, president of CDL Associates. The monthly luncheon and program will be from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21 at the Regale Center in Sycamore.

“We are very excited about the direction that KWN will be taking in 2013,” said Rose Treml, executive director of the Sycamore Chamber of Commerce. “For the next 12 months we have a series of programs geared toward empowering women initiatives. We invite you to participate in this extraordinary business development experience with an intimate group of dynamic women."

The Kishwaukee Women’s Network promotes the goals and objectives of the Sycamore Chamber and has three primary purposes. It assists businesswomen throughout the community in improving their networking capabilities and growing their business by introducing ideas, concepts and techniques that may serve to be a great value in reaching their goals; it is a network for a more effective exchange of ideas among women in the community and the businesses or service organizations they represent; and it develops and encourages an informed viewpoint on policies and actions involving business and industry in Sycamore, DeKalb and neighboring areas.

“We have an amazing group of women who support each other and offer the wisdom of their experience freely and selflessly. You will find a shared commitment to excellence in every aspect of life that is without bounds. You will find professional women who offer incredible examples of balancing their careers, faith, families and volunteerism. You will find inspiration, encouragement, mentorship and friendship,” Treml said.  

The fee for the monthly luncheon and program is $15. Reservations are required by calling the Sycamore Chamber at 815-895-3456.
