Women’s Power Networking Featured in the Jacksonville, NC Daily News

Article by: Rachel Huber

Once a week in Jacksonville (North Carolina), businesswomen come together for support, advice and the possibility of new business at one of Jacksonville’s newest networking groups.

The Jacksonville chapter of Women’s Power Networking started in August when Iris Lemmonds, chapter organizer, said she saw a need for it in the community. With its large online presence, Lemmonds, an independent associate with LegalShield, said that WPN was well-suited to the transient military population of Jacksonville. In addition to the way it can build skills and confidence through the positions members can obtain while in the group, Lemmonds said she liked that it was something military spouses could keep up with online wherever they ended up moving to. Read more here....
