50 Women You Need to Meet™ is the brainchild of Lynda Hill, a Miller & Martin member who saw the need for a group designed specifically for business and professional women. The group promotes networking and provides a platform on which the participants can share information and resources. Miller & Martin hosted the first event in Nashville in May and “the feedback was phenomenal. Attendees enjoyed the low-pressure atmosphere and were impressed by the caliber of the participants.” said Hill.

Attendees expressed enough interest that planning began immediately for subsequent gatherings in Nashville and expansion of the group to Atlanta and Chattanooga, where Miller & Martin has offices. There was even interest from another organization to join efforts.

“After attending the first 50 Women gathering, I immediately approached Lynda asking if NASBA could participate in the next 50 Women event. This is a dynamic opportunity for women to increase their relationship capital and benefit from the diverse perspectives of those in attendance. The most exciting part is that this is just the beginning,” said Linda Biek, NASBA’s Director of Governmental, International and Professional Relationships.

“Miller & Martin is pleased to create this opportunity and honored that such a dynamic group of accomplished professionals are involved. We look forward to hosting future events.” Hill adds. Atlanta is the next stop for this event in early 2012.
