What we're about

Public Group

Our purpose is to improve our entrepreneurial skills, first by building strong relationships. Then by learning from each other and the selected guest speakers, who will teach us about their various areas of expertise. If you have an idea for a speaker, please contact Marti Ryan (

We meet the first Wednesday of every month to build relationships with other entrepreneurs to discuss and share ideas. This group is for people already in business as well as those thinking about starting one. Terry Noel, Ph.D., a business professor at Illinois State University, originally created the group in January 2010. Sue Mescher graciously agreed to take on the organizer role when Terry stepped down in June of 2014. Since then, Sue has brought on some organizing partners, so she could focus on meeting and greeting Entrepreneurs as they join us. Marti & Marshall Ryan, Chad Palmer, and Jeff Spicer are now co-organizers of this group. We all hope to bring value to our members and continue to grow the group and expand upon the purpose!
