Moira Were AM, our 100th foundation member

The Women in Business Regional Network is proud to announce its 100th foundation member is Moira Were AM, founder of Chooks SA.

Moira has been a strong supporter of the network from the days before it was founded and her movement for better gender outcomes, Chooks SA, has provided significant opportunities for expansion of the network, as well as some great connections and guest speakers.

Some of our Victor Harbor members may remember Moira addressed a function in Victor Harbor last year about the Chooks SA movement and also how she had used social media to build her brand.

The addition of Moira as our 100th foundation member means that foundation membership has now closed and only standard, a new corporate and a soon to be introduced affiliate membership will be on offer.
