Most of you know Jodi Archer as the friendly face who greets and checks you in each month. However, that’s a tiny fraction of the work that she has done to get our league chartered, including filling out many tedious forms, creating a budget nearly from scratch, and setting up our account, which she did as Formation Committee Financial Chair. As Vice President of Finance, Jodi has simplified our luncheon payment procedure, kept up with our accounting, and sees that our league stays within budget. Many thanks for all of your hard work, Jodi!!

New Orleans is growing its reputation as a business and technology hub, and as of last week, there are new resources for women entrepreneurs in the city.
Wendy Dolan is a website programmer and the founder of Get Online NOLA, an organization that helps businesses utilize online resources to gain visibility. Dolan was active in opening the Crescent City Connections ABWA chapter.
“New Orleans is a really great place to be an entrepreneur and its becoming more and more of a great place for female entrepreneurs or female businesswomen,” Dolan says. “But, the wage gap in Louisiana is so troubling, and we can do more to encourage young women to understand that they do have the potential to earn as much as men, and to really fight for themselves.”
