President's Message

September, 2016

Hello Ladies and welcome to another year of Women and Business for 2016-2017!  I am delighted to be back for my second term as President of WBN for the Fredericton and surrounding areas.  We had a very successful year and I look forward to celebrating another one with all of you.

We launched the year at our September Kick Off hosted by the Crowne Plaza.  The Executive hope you had a great evening and that our networking game helped you to meet some other fabulous women.  This is our main focus!  We want you to be comfortable and meet the smart, energetic, creative, entrepreneurial women that we have right here in our own area.  You can learn from each other and lean on each other.  The resources are invaluable.

I have been a member for more than 10 years and this network has helped me move out of my comfort zone and has taught me to be a better business owner, business partner and employer to my growing staff.  Unfortunately when you get comfortable you have to face another fear and do something new to improve your business or your personal life. The WBN wants to inspire you and help you take the next step or your first step.

We have so much to celebrate with our women winning well -earned awards at the Business Excellence Awards, a book launching, a new network being brought to Fredericton (WPO) and one of our B&B’s honoured with an Excellence award from Trip Advisor.  These are local women and we are so proud. We should celebrate each other at all times.  That’s what amazing women do!

I look forward to meeting each and every one of you.


Maureen Schmidt

President 2016-2017
