Fee slashed in drive for members

Women in Business is embarking on a major recruitment drive to double its membership base in 12 months.

The group for businesswomen, which has more than 1,200 members from a range of sectors, is slashing its annual membership fee to £25 in a one-off bid to double its numbers and attract women from small businesses.

The group said it wanted to offer "all businesswomen access and engagement with the fastest growing network of its kind on the island".

Cutting the fee would also remove any financial barrier to joining.

Chief executive Roseann Kelly said: "We want to encourage more independent businesswomen and women who work in small organisations in the private, public and voluntary sectors to join, as we believe every woman in every business, whatever that business may be, can benefit from membership."
