BECOME A MEMBER
We are building a community of empowering, enthusiastic and hard working entrepreneurs across the country. By becoming a member of a Dames Collective chapter near you, you are joining that community. Members are entrepreneurs that make a commitment to themselves to grow their network, their knowledge and their companies to in turn grow themselves. If you are willing to make that commitment, Dames Collective and its community is here to help you every step of the way.
Access to monthly morning mindfuel meetings
Each month we host a Morning MindFUEL, and we focus on one topic at each meeting. We invite three speakers who are experts in this topic to provide our members and attendees with excellent advice and the knowledge they seek to grow their businesses. You will have a chance to ask them your questions, network with other local entrepreneurs and share your elevator pitch with everyone in attendance. Dames Collective provides you with Mimosas if you are over 21, and sometimes yummy snacks and swag. (This event costs $25 to attend if you are not a member). Members attend for free. Our Morning MindFUELs are always on a Friday from 8am-10:30am, and starting Jan 1, 2019 they will be held on the first Friday of every month.
Access to dames after hours - evening mixers
Each quarter, we choose a different woman owned business to host our evening mixer at. You will get the chance to mingle with other members and local entrepreneurs, cheers to being badass bosses with a cocktail (Provided by Dames Collective), and learn how the host started her business. This meeting is strictly for gaining inspiration, letting loose, and making meaningful connections. Our evening mixers are held on a Tuesday or Thursday evening from 6:30pm - 8:30pm every three months.
Pre-Sale + Discounted Price to Specialty Dames Events
Our goal is to keep each meeting between 35-50 attendees, as we know that networking events can get a little overwhelming, and we want to make everyone feel comfortable, welcome and assist them in making meaningful connections not just engaging in the act of business card collecting. With that said, our members will always get the first chance to reserve their spots. We often hold bigger events for the small business and entrepreneur community, and when we do we offer our members discounted prices to attend.
