The Somerset County Chapter of BW NICE partners with The Resource Center of Somerset, the release said, a non-profit agency that serves people affected by domestic abuse in Somerset County.

Monthly meetings of BW NICE are held every second Thursday of the month from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., with open networking from 8:30 a.m. to 9 a.m., at the Bridgewater Manor on Route 202/206.

“BW NICE is such a wonderful and unique organization,” Wisniewski said in the release. “I am pleased to see our membership growing at each monthly meeting.”

BW NICE, the release said, encompasses three elements – networking, education and charity. Through networking, women build friendships and learn new ways to grow and develop their businesses, while gaining access to a group of talented professionals and having fun.

BW NICE, the release said, brings in speakers to offer instruction, motivation and encouragement. Through charitable work, it brings together talents to help benefit other women.

“When you bring a group of women together for a cause, it’s amazing what they can do,” Simovich said.
