NORWICH – Women gathered from numerous professions and backgrounds to share their personal and professional successes at the 7th Annual Norwich Business and Professional Women’s conference Wednesday. The title of the day-long event was “Power Up for Success” – professionally, politically and personally.
The day was fulfilled with educational sessions, speakers, vendors, a panel discussion and a Chinese auction at the American Legion in Norwich. First to speak was Jude Thomas, a Sherburne resident who shared her own personal story of success at home and in the work force. Juggling a high-powered career, two disabled children and somehow finding time to take care of her own needs is a difficult task, she said.
