Help with the Executive Closet professional clothing drive!

Dear BPW Members, Ellen Chapman with the  MSU Center for Student Success is coordinating a professional clothing drive for the MSU Executive Closet, which provides free professional clothing to students so they can dress for success. Ellen is looking for partner businesses who might be willing to serve as a drop off location for professional clothing donations, as well as put a call out to their colleagues and staff to donate clothing. Sorority and fraternity volunteers will be making rounds 2X a week to partner businesses to pick up clothing between now and Feb. 23rd.
If you would like to help and serve as a drop off location for clothing donations, please call Ellen at 1-323-816-0211. The Executive Closet Event will take place at MSU on Feb. 23rd.

 SCORE Accounting Workshop, May 13th, Free!

Free Virtual Workshop: How to Correctly Select a Small Business Accountant

Presented in partnership with
The US Small Business Administration,
Bozeman’s Public Library,
Chamber of Commerce,
and Economic Development Office

Noon‐1:15pm on Thursday May 13 via Zoom. Register here:

Presented By Jody Seibert, Fix Your Accounting, LLC (and BPW Member!)

It’s not your skill set, it’s not your focus, and it’s bigger and meaner than the
monster under your bed. If you worry about your accounting methods,
financial reports, or how responsible and accountable you really are, this
workshop is for you. How do you know if you should hire an outside
accountant or bookkeeper? How about accounting software—which? Can you really do it all yourself?

Taught by an accountant with over 20 years of experience working with problem‐plagued small businesses,

Jody will work through basic must‐haves, the logical succession of accounting systems, the information you
must have to run your business, and the responsibilities you absolutely cannot abdicate.
