On Wednesday at the Minturn Saloon, a small group of motivated women gathered together, socially distanced, with glasses in hands and masks on faces, to hear about the mission, objectives and values of Vail Valley Business Women.

Vail Valley Business Women is dedicated to the advancement and growth of professional women in Eagle County. VVBW holds the values of camaraderie, education intention, dynamism and support. Its objectives include providing a forum for networking, staging educational programming and speakers, exchanging business ideas, community involvement, and to providing scholarships, mentorship and volunteer opportunities.

“VVBW has 1,013 contacts in its database with over 30 industries represented. In the past year, we have held four virtual Zoom meetings, featured three keynote speakers, facilitated two networking events, a social networking event and produced two special events: an open house and holiday soiree fundraiser,” said former VVBW President Laura Waniuk.

Sarah Seigel, new president of the board, took over the reins and invited guests to join the efforts of VVBW.

“As you know, we are better together as a valley. The more that we can support each other as a small community, the better. … My goal is to help promote each other’s businesses,” Seigel said.
