We are now fully a membership organization. If you are a Broads Circle member, we invite you to come and join us for our winter and spring events.

If you are not a member, it’s easy to join–just buy an event ticket (the one-time annual general membership dues are included in the ticket price). You will then be a General Member going forward and will get member pricing for tickets throughout 2013. General membership is $30 through March 1st, then goes up to $50.

networkingWe welcome back our Bottom Line Broads, women who have attained a position of leadership and have the ablity to drive revenue and grow capital for other Bottom Line Broads (BLB). We invite you to join us for our first of six BLB Kick Up the Commerce networking events on January 31st, hosted by our new Bottom Line Broads President, Katherine Blair, Partner at K&L Gates. Katherine has volunteered to help us plan and hold the six networking events this year. Our goal is to hold these events on the last business day of the month, every odd-numbered month, so save the dates ladies! These networking events will be open to Bottom Line Broads and Executive Broads, and will be hosted by members at their offices.

Our first Executive Broads Crush the Ceiling meeting will be held on February 27th. We’re delighted to welcome Julie MacMedan, Vice President of Investor Relations for Demand Media, as the 2013 Executive Broads President. Executive Broads are women who lead in corporate roles, while Bottom Line Broads are in top-level service provider roles.

Our goal for 2013 is to help you make more money, and get you more power!!!  Let’s roll and shake up Los Angeles/Orange County with our revenue and capital!  The OC events will be announced soon!
