"These women are doing amazing things in their business sectors and in the community, which we think is a critical step in growing one's business," said Angela Kubisky, executive vice president of membership and marketing at the chamber. "Women are still under-represented in senior management positions in the business community and when successful women pay it forward to other women, they change the dynamics of women in the workplace.

To register for the event, visit and go to the online events calendar. The cost is $75 for chamber members and $95 for non-members.

The Women Who Shine Awards luncheon is being produced by the chamber's Women in Business Program.

"Our program comprises successful women from disparate business sectors throughout Morris County," said Debbie Wolpov, national sales executive at Premiere Payment and program chair. "We felt it was time to recognize and honor those women in Morris County who are leading the way for other women and I only wish we could have recognized all our nominees."

The conditions under which I read In Cold Blood for the first time were pretty weird, which was another ...
