  • Networking

    In addition to the camaraderie of sharing a meal together and mingling before and after meetings, Women's Network of Rapid City meetings include formal networking time.

    During formal networking each member has 30 seconds to make an announcement, introduce herself, describe her business, or promote a community event.

    Reminder: Formal networking is a members-only privilege. Guests who would like to participate should be sure to submit their application and payment prior to the start of formal networking time.

  • Literature tables

    To promote their business or event, members may bring a small stack of literature, flyers, or even free samples.

    Don't forget to stop by the back of the room to see what other members have to share. Sometimes they don't get time to announce their materials during their brief 30 seconds of formal networking time!

    Reminder: Dining tables are only to be used to display or distribute items 4.25 x 5.5 inches or smaller. Please place larger materials on the literature tables in the back of the room! Also, please remember to remove leftover materials.

  • Door prizes

    At each meeting, Women's Network of Rapid City members may provide up to two door prizes to promote themselves and their businesses.

    All members place their business cards into the basket for a chance to win the door prizes or a Spotlight feature to be placed in the newsletter and on the website.

    Each meeting also includes a 50/50 drawing. Guests and members are both eligible to purchase tickets for this drawing. Half of the money goes towards the Women's Network scholarship fund. Help us raise money to support each other, and maybe take home some cash!

  • Scholarships

    Women's Network of Rapid City provides a limited number of scholarships to support members' professional growth. The Network regularly sponsors candidates to the Leadership Rapid City program conducted by the Rapid City Area Chamber of Commerce. Sponsored members who are selected are also given scholarships to cover participation fees.

    Additionally, members may submit applications for their own proposed career-related education.

    To apply, download and submit our Women's Network of Rapid City scholarship application.
