On May 25, the Ridgefield Chamber of Commerce will host their 12th Annual Women’s Forum at Salem Golf Club from 9:00am – 2:30pm. This ever-growing event features a fantastic line-up of speakers, a lovely brunch, terrific networking opportunities, shopping, beauty and relaxation stations as well as our presentation of the Woman of the Year award. This year we honor Margaret Price, owner of Ridgefield Supply Company, for her entrepreneurial vision and accomplishments. Margaret is a highly regarded businesswoman, in a male dominated industry, who took a vision and dream to its fruition with the building of their new facility.
The theme this year is “Triumph Through Transition” and the Chamber has identified a stellar line-up of women who will speak to our hearts, minds and spirits. Nationally recognized speaker and author, Kaitlin Roig-DeBellis, will present the brunch keynote address. Roig-DeBellis is the author of Choosing Hope: Moving Forward from Life's Darkest Hours and founder of nonprofit Classes 4 Classes. Roig-Debellis was a first-grade teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary School who, thanks to quick thinking and swift action, is credited with saving the lives of her precious 15 students on December 14, 2012.
