AUBURN — The Maine Women’s Network invites members, guests and the general public to its  meeting March 14 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Auburn.

It will be from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The cost, $16 for nonmembers, includes everything.  Nonmembers are always welcome.

Each meeting provides meaningful networking opportunities for members to market themselves and their businesses, as well as to make personal contacts. This meeting is sponsored by Linnell, Choate & Webber. The speaker will be Rebecca Webber, a partner at Linnell, Choate & Webber in Auburn, who will address business law issues, including employee issues, collection of payments, accommodation of customers as required by the Maine Human Rights Act, bounced checks, and other legal issues that small businesses may face.

Members are encouraged to register their guests in advance for the member rate.  Online preregistration for members, guests and nonmembers is required by March 9 (though walk-ins can attend for a soup and salad option).  Register online at by clicking on the “Event Registration” link.

A statewide organization with multiple chapters, including Portland, Androscoggin, and Midcoast, membership is open to all, regardless of gender.
