WHY Become a Member?

We are different from other organizations:

1. Clicks and mix networking. i-Network is an organization that combines both online and in-person networking.
2. Professional and personal development. Women no longer draw lines between their professional and personal lives, we help members combine both.
3. Low-key, low cost networking. We’ve found that by avoiding costly events and formalities, our members take charge and get more out of our networks.
4. No guilt networking. We have smaller, more casual events and an online networking platform. Our members can interact in a comfortable environment that fits their schedule.
5. Our “business is fun” philosophy. We know from experience that if networking isn’t fun, then we’re not going to find time to do it!

About Us:

Novermber 30, 2011 starts a new beginning for this chapter.

The South Shore Chapter of the Downtown Women’s Club has been in existence since 2005, under the guidance of Paula Harris, it grew from a few “friends” meeting once a month, to gatherings of 50-100, when she turned it over in 2009. Recently, Darlene Calcagno has led this group to some wonderful places and times. [more about DWC past]

We want to continue the tradition, under our new name: i-network, and hope you will want to participate in this adventure with us.

Our company, The Toolbox, Inc. runs educational opportunities and events such as the South Shore Tweetup, The Non-Profit Toolbox, and Tech Day Camp.
