Many of attendees register through the website and not through Meetup. Please visit our Web site at http://www.wso50.com to learn more about the organization. Presently we are not charging for membership, only the $10 meeting registration fee.
We are a North Carolina non-profit organization dedicated to education and support of women who are in the second half of life. WSO50 is currently pursuing federal tax-exempt status. the group was founded by Donna Nelson and Noelle Randall and has been in existence since September of 2010.
WOMEN STARTING OVER AFTER 50 is about change, growth, about finding your passion once again.Some of us are single, some of us are married, some of us are empty nesters and some of us have never had children. Some of us have a working history, and some of us have never taken that path. But, whatever road we have chosen in life we all have one thing in common.
We are wonderful women 50 and beyond and starting our journey for the second half of our lives. We gather to help each other take that journey with passion and gusto to be the happy, fulfilled women we were meant to be.
"No one changes by what they KNOW...they change by what they FEEL"
** Please review our Business Promotion Policy **
One of the goals of Women Starting Over After 50 is to encourage our members' business efforts. At the same time, it is not our purpose or policy to allow meetings to be used to market to attendees. Please follow these guidelines:
When attending a meeting for the first time, women are asked to introduce themselves, and, as part of that introduction, if they are involved in a business enterprise, state very briefly what that enterprise is. Further discussion of the enterprise is not permitted during the introduction.
Women who are involved in a business enterprise that involves marketing to individuals may offer another attendee their business card, but may not further solicit attendees or market to them at WSO50 meetings, except as described below.
Sometimes speakers at WSO50 will give presentations pertinent to their business enterprises. They are expected to limit their presentations to information-sharing on the announced topic rather than business promotion.
From time to time, a WSO50 meeting will include a business promotion component. Tables will be provided in the room adjacent to the room where we hold our regular meeting. This may include, for example, members who have written books, or produced crafts that they wished to share and well. Business promotion may not extend into the social area of the meeting.
