Coastal Women’s Forum (CWF) welcomes smart, savvy women of all ages, interests and abilities - women like you. We invite you to join us at our monthly lunch and dinner meetings, and take advantage of being a CWF member. 

Coastal Women's Forum Membership includes:

  • Meetings that fit your busy schedule
  • Business, professional, and volunteer networking opportunities
  • Informative and entertaining speakers
  • Opportunities to promote your passion
  • Career and self-development
  • Access to the support, knowledge, and experience of your fellow CWF members
  • Encouragement from women who have been there and done that
  • Your chance to give back and support other women in our community

 CWF Members are women who own businesses, or are following careers in the for-profit and non-profit sectors. Other members are blissfully enjoying retirement or raising families. Some are new to New Bern and are seeking ways to establish themselves within the community. They are all energetically involved in pursuing their personal passions and often committed volunteers for the benefit of the community.

 Become a CWF member and share our mission of Networking, Education and Encouragement. Browse the website and understand who we are and what we are all about. But the best way for you to know us is to meet us in person. Sign up to attend a luncheon or dinner and meet the dynamic women of our thriving and constantly growing group. We’ve saved you a seat!

February 2016

Winter has finally arrived bringing the colder temperatures and soon we will begin to anticipate the beauty of Spring. On February 2, the Groundhog comes out of his hole (cage) after a long winter sleep to look for his shadow. If he sees it, he regards it as an omen of six more weeks of bad weather and returns to his hole. If the day is cloudy and shadowless, he takes it as a sign of Spring and stays above ground. I hope the day is cloudy and we have an early Spring; how about you?

February is also known for Valentine’s Day, which may make you think of jewelry. With that in mind we chose Hearne's Jewelers as our February dinner speaker. Hearne's Jewelers will share their thoughts about those old vintage jewelry pieces that we may have inherited from our parents or broken pieces just sitting around in a drawer somewhere. Should you redesign it and make it new again or cash it in for some pocket change? Of course there are many options and only you can decide what is best for you. There are several other “holidays” or special days in February and each of them may or may not be important to the majority of us. One such Holiday is President’s Day. Federal/Government workers usually have the day off but most of us still work. Do you know who was President on the day you were born? What did that President do that has influenced you? Dwight Eisenhower was in office when I was born and Richard Nixon was Vice President.

In closing, our CWF year is half way over, and we are in the planning stages for the CWF Trade Share in April and the end of the year Hat Social in June. Both of these events will be held at the New Bern Golf and Country Club on Thursday evenings. These are 2 events you don’t want to miss. Check the website periodically for updates and mark your calendar to attend. As we count the days until spring, stay warm and bring a friend to the next event!!!

Annual Trade Share  -- Thursday, April 7 , NBGCC

End of Year Hat Social - Thursday, June 9, NBGCC
