Q: Can I come to luncheons without becoming a PWIB member?
A: Yes! If you’re not sure we’re the group for you, come and check us out. Just be sure to let us know you’re coming—the deadline for registrations is the Wednesday before the luncheon.
Q: What are the benefits of PWIB membership?
A: You get discounts on all meals and events. We store your marketing materials and set them out at the next luncheon, so they’ll be on display even if you’re not there. And PWIB members get to showcase your business or organization (see below).
Q: Why do I have to pre-register (RSVP) for luncheons?
A: We need to let the kitchen staff know how much food to prepare and how many tables to arrange. Even if you're a "regular," we can't know when you might have other obligations, so please take a moment and let us know you're coming, register, and e-transfer your payment.
Q: What if I just show up at the door?
A: We may be able to find space for you, but there’s no guarantee.
NOTE: To keep our costs down, we must let the catering staff know how much food to prepare. There is an additional cost for all non-registered arrivals: $45 at the door.
Q: What if something comes up and I need to cancel?
A: Please let us know as soon as possible. If we've already given the catering staff our numbers, we'll have to charge you for your meal because they have to charge us.
Q: I’m a vegetarian. Will there be food for me?
A: Our luncheon is buffet-style. Several of our "regulars" are vegetarians, and the wonderful kitchen staff includes a variety of tasty dishes and salads, along with plain vegetables and greens. While they can't always accommodate every dietary need, you're sure to find enough to eat.
Please keep in mind that your $25 is for a great networking opportunity, along with a reasonably priced meal.
