President’s Message 2017 – 2018

Welcome to OWBN!

Let’s grow our businesses TOGETHER ~ is our mandate for the 2017/2018 year. This year we will continue to provide educational speakers and events to assist you in growing your business.

We are Women in Business supporting Women in Business and we continue to do this TOGETHER. We are women who mentor each other and share our expertise through networking and business contacts.

Joining OWBN was one of the best decisions I made and my business has grown because of the women I have met over the past 2 years. The support I have received has been amazing and I am so grateful for the advice and guidance offered to me from so many experienced and professional women.

We look forward to learning about you and your business and how we can support you as your business grows.

Please ask any member of the OWBN Executive team if you have any questions. We welcome you to another fabulous OWBN Networking Year!

Kindest regards,
Permelia Parham OWBN President 2017 – 2018


OWBN is a great opportunity for women to connect and share the incredible work they do as well as possibly collaborate with other like-minded business women.  Many new personal and business relationships have developed because of OWBN.

Members of other women’s business networks on Vancouver Island are invited to attend our meetings at the members’ rates.
