Super LINC a Marquis event
Female payments industry professionals from across the United States and Canada will have an opportunity to meet and network at the second annual Super LINC (Local Interest Networking Circle) on Oct. 14, 2009, at the New York Marriot Marquis in the heart of Times Square.
The event is sponsored by Women Networking in Electronic Transactions (W.net), an organization devoted to empowering women in the payments industry, and will begin immediately following The Electronic Transactions Association's 2009 Strategic Leadership Networking Forum.
LINCs provide regional forums for women payment professionals to network and share techniques. The Super LINC provides a national networking platform, bringing women from all 10 LINC regions together.
Michele Jerome, W.net's new Executive Director and an expert in nonprofit organization management, will be attending her first LINC event.
"Our theme this year, since we are in New York, is the industry that never sleeps," Jerome said. "We hope to provide a balance of networking time as well as an educational component that will give women resources to help further their careers and meet their aspirations."
This year's Super LINC will kick off with a presentation of the second Driving Improvement Via Action (DIVA) Awards, which recognize individuals and companies working to promote women in the industry and further W.net's mission. Jerome added that a speed networking session and closing keynote speaker will follow the awards ceremony.
"Speed networking gives everyone in attendance an opportunity to know everyone there," Jerome said. "And we think that the keynote speaker will enable attendees to take away an educational component that could really help position them for greater personal success.
"Most importantly, we want to make sure that the value of W.net - and what the great ladies of this organization have to offer - shows through." For more information or to register online, visit www.w-net.biz.com.
