Our monthly WBG Connects meeting is an opportunity to learn, expand your network of business contacts, find inspiration, and share your expertise with others. Listen to an inspiring woman guest speaker, have an opportunity to be part of our speed-networking session that follows, then become further acquainted with fellow members when we break out into rooms for further discussion about a chosen business topic. Open to members and non-members.

Vocational education is much different today than it was just 10 years ago. Today vocational education plays a vital role in our society. Vocational education allows high school students to learn a trade and become the glue that holds the world together. Where would we be without plumbers, chefs, nurses, or cosmetologist?
I personally am a product of vocational education and I’m very proud of it. I graduated from Tri-County in the first graduating class. While at Tri-County, I explored eight different shop choices. I ultimately chose Culinary Arts because I knew, once I was in that shop, that it was the place for me. Others chose their shops from the 18 choices. All students explored each shop with no gender role consideration. In fact, many females graduated as carpenters and auto technicians.
Help make vocational education a choice for the future.
