  17. Hello,

    I relocated to North Dallas from Hurst, TX several months ago and would welcome the opportunity to find out more about TBW.

    While living in Hurst, I worked to form an outreach (Success is in Your Hands Foundation) to support young women in their efforts to have a more positive and productive life experience. In addition, I was appointed by the Hurst city council to be involved with several volunteer endeavors. At this time I’m seeking to re-enter the workforce, or become involved with volunteering, and networking with other professional women.

    Thank you for your time and attention to my inquiry.

    • Hello, Nancy —

      Thanks so much for contacting the Texas Business Women of Dallas Metro North through our website! We are a Local Organization of TBW, and our mission is “women helping women”. TBW furthers this goal through mentoring, networking, education, and advocacy, but we do not have internship programs per se.

      That said, one never does know where opportunities will arise, so if you’ll email me a resume, along with some details about your chosen field of study and what kind of internship you are seeking, I’ll be sure to share it with our membership as well as the members of other LOs in the area. We are a diverse group from just about every career and profession, and we’d be really pleased to connect you if possible.

      If you are interested in learning more about TBW, we’d welcome you at one of our monthly gatherings, on the fourth Monday of each month at the Southfork Hotel in Plano. Our State organization offers a Young Women’s Connection program aimed at women just starting their careers, and our LO would be pleased to mentor you!

      • What time do you start your meetings.  I am currently unemployed and fairly new to the area, looking to network.
         
        Thank you
         
        Sherry

        • Hi, Sherry —

          Our meetings are held on the fourth Monday of each month, and they begin at 6pm with networking, meeting and introducing guests, and socializing. Dinner is served around 6:30 and the evening’s program begins around 7, when everyone has finished dinner — or, at least, the guest speaker! I hope you can come to our July meeting, as we’ll be doing our planning for the coming year, led by our newly installed officers. Everyone’s ideas, suggestions, and comments are considered, and we’d be particularly pleased to hear from you as to how our group can meet your needs. Let us know what you’re looking for in our organization on Monday, July 25, at 6pm — hope to see you there!
