Networking holds key for EWHT

Speakers set for market week Power Breakfast

Helaine Suval, Carolyn D'Angelo and Andrea Nirenberg will be the speakers at the semi-annual market week breakfast sponsored by the Executive Women in Home Textiles (EWHT).

The organization, which began in 1995, has gone back to its roots — networking. "We know that networking remains key to keeping up with the changes in the industry, and there are fewer opportunities to keep in touch," said Merle Johnson, one of the founders and a member of its steering committee.

The semi-annual Power Breakfast will be held Oct. 13 from 8:00 a.m to 9:30 a.m. at Fashion Institute of Technology, Building A, 8th floor reception area at 27th Street and Seventh Avenue here.

Suval, senior vp, gmm, macys.com; D'Angelo, vp, marketing and licensing for Waverly; and Nirenberg, author, consultant, speaker and teacher, will address the theme "The Keys to Success, Networking Never Ends."

Discussing the changes, industry consultant and steering committee member Gloria Lang said, "As changes continue within the industry and in our lives, we realized our networking programs needed a new energy."

As a result EWHT is putting emphasis on a new recruitment program that will offer a new category of membership — Young Alumnae, women five years into their careers. Dues will remain $75 for the calendar year for members, $35 for Young Alumnae and students.

There is no charge for the breakfast for members, and it is $40 for guests.

EWHT has established a online new address, infoEWHT@ yahoogroups.com; group e-mail for the steering committee, steeringEWHT@ yahoogroups.com; and association e-mail, EWHT@ yahoogroups. com.
