New East Valley Women’s Professional Group Launches

The Phoenix-metro-based Women of Scottsdale and Central Phoenix Women groups proudly announce the launch of a third, localized chapter, East Valley Women being added to serve women business professionals who live or work in Tempe, Mesa, Gilbert, and Chandler. East Valley Women will meet on the third Tuesday of every month from 7:30am to 9am at the Hilton Phoenix/Mesa in Mesa, Ariz., beginning on Tax Day, Tuesday, April 15, 2014.

The new East Valley Women group is a sister organization of the esteemed Women of Scottsdale, founded in 1998 and Central Phoenix Women, founded in 2006 by Linda Herold. Herold retired in December 2013, and named JoAnn Holland CEO of the groups. It is under her stewardship that the East Valley Women group has launched. The groups endeavor to support women beginning their professional career, business and professional leaders, women in government, women in education and those who have retired to create a deep and long-lasting community of mutual support.

The group has named community alumna Jodi Towns as the Inaugural Director of the new east valley group and she will serve a two-year term; promoting membership and business sponsorship for the new chapter, as well as acting as Master of Ceremonies at monthly meetings. As the new Inaugural Director, Towns intends to further the spirit of community support with a focus on communities east of Phoenix and Scottsdale. She will continue as the Director of Practice Management for LifeScape Premier, a Scottsdale-based concierge medical practice that has been actively involved in supporting and sponsoring Women of Scottsdale and Central Phoenix Women for several years, and is looking forward to launching the nascent East Valley group.

“I’m honored to uphold and extend the tradition and support that these fine groups provide business women in our communities,” says Towns. “With the new group serving the East Valley we’ll be able to reach, serve and bring more fantastic women into the fray.”

The groups’ CEO and founder is equally pleased with the chapter developments. “Jodi has been such a passionate advocate for our existing groups and we’re thrilled to have her leading the charge for the East Valley,” states JoAnn Holland. “We look forward to continued success under her direction with the new East Valley Women chapter.”
