New Member: The Women’s Forum
The Women's Forum

There’s a new women’s group in New Ulm, and the Willkommen Committee met with them to learn more and to welcome them as new members of the New Ulm Area Chamber of Commerce.  Co-founder Andrea Boettger saw the need for a women’s group in New Ulm, and she rallied a small group of women to help her put together The Women’s Forum.  They planned for a year before being ready to launch.  Over 100 women attended their kick-off event in January, and they currently have 100+ members. The mission of The Women’s Forum is “to be a leading source for leveraging the collective power of women in central Minnesota by serving as a catalyst for personal and professional growth, strengthening our community, and empowering women to achieve their own success.”  To learn more, see upcoming event information, or to join, visit their facebook page at @TheWomensForumNU.
