Vice-President - Alyssa Pratt, Crein Solutions
Secretary - Tamara Bellamy, Fort Saskatchewan Second Cup

Teresa Spinelli, President of the Italian Centre Shop, was then introduced as the evenings guest speaker. Spinelli's message on Turning your passion into Profit, focused on a work-life balanced.

That message resonated with Local Women in Business.
