ABOUT NEWoM

A Note From Our President
“N.E.W. of Marin began with four women who had a vision for a “NEW” and different kind of women’s networking group. We wanted a group:
1. that would meet in the evening (since none of us were big morning people)
2. with not too many rules (the main one is: COME)
3. where we laugh, have fun AND get business done
 .
One of our original four co-founders, Margaret A. Root, was instrumental in creating what we are today: growing from a meager 8 members in 2010 to over 85 members strong, and counting. Sadly Margaret passed away in 2012, and left behind a legacy that she would be so very proud of today. We will always remember her fondly.
Thank you Margaret, for seeing a future for this group that we could not have imagined without you.”
Love,
Andrea, President & Co-founder

 N.E.W. of Marin was founded with the purpose of supporting the business growth of its members by providing regular networking and educational opportunities. In just 8 short years we have tripled in size. Our business owner members provide professional consulting and personal services, and sell products and services we all need!

The connection: our meetings and the value of leads. On the second Tuesday of each month we hold a regular dinner networking meeting. The first 30 minutes is reserved for an informal meet and greet time. Here members and guests share their latest business news, make new friends and contacts, and exchange ideas about growing their enterprises. Simply stated: it works, our long-time members are a testament to the value of attending regular networking events. The bottom line: making good connections is good for business. Register for this month’s meeting!

denise-and-andrea-at-retreat“The co-founders of our group all came from various backgrounds and experiences with other networking groups. When we put our N.E.W. of Marin group  together, we wanted to create a group that stood out from the rest. What makes us different is we are fun focused with very few rules. Friendships and laughter flow easily and gals who  attend our dinner meetings and participate in our group immediately have the feeling of a no pressure, supportive environment.” ~ Andrea Devaux, President and Co-founder

inspiredInspiration — our guest speakers get us fired up. Each dinner meeting we host a guest speaker carefully selected to provide education, entertainment and inspiration.  Past speakers have included authors, leadership coaches, marketing and public speaking experts, relationship counselors, health care providers, nutritionists, master chefs, and fitness trainers to name a few. All have been wonderful.

Fun and informal events: business receptions, trips, and group activities… img_1309Our social committee enjoys devising other ways of mixing business with pleasure.

All members are invited and guests are always welcome, space permitting.
