Business and Professional Women of Nevada County seeks to engage, educate, and encourage members of the Club as well as the local community. This time in our lives has been unique in that we have to try harder to reach out to each other.
Members of the Board and Education Fund have called and emailed our members to keep in touch. You may always reach out to any of us if you have questions or concerns or just have an idea for a future program or fundraising venture.
We hope you have been able to attend our virtual meetings via Zoom. Tracy Pepper of Color Me Human presented in July. While Janet Rankin was to present in August her presentation was canceled due to the Jones Bar ﬁre but she has been in the process of a ﬁlm collaboration with The Union newspaper regarding women’s suffrage. The ﬁlm is to be released in February 2021. Mila Johansen, author of ‘From Cowgirl to Congress‘ will be presenting this month. You may obtain her book through amazon or order locally from The Book Seller in Grass Valley or Harmony Books in Nevada City. We try to educate people about important issues regarding women in the present day or to celebrate the past.
We do seek to encourage women to pursue their education or advance in their career. We do this through our Ed Fund. We have provided scholarships this year but haven’t fully been able to celebrate the recipients in the manner we are accustomed to. We would like to grant additional scholarships and encouragement awards but our funds are dwindling.

Thank you for sowing the seeds for our future!
