State Senator Toni Boucher is inviting women entrepreneurs in her district to come to the Legislative Office Building (300 Capitol Ave.) in Hartford on Wednesday, May 2 for the 5th Annual Women-Owned Business Day. Boucher is a member of the Host Committee for the Women’s Business Development Council.

“It’s always gratifying to see the growing number of women-owned businesses represented at this event. In addition to celebrating these wonderful entrepreneurs, it provides networking opportunities, and policy talks from local and national thought leaders on the issues facing women in the business world,” she said.

Registration for the event begins at 9 a.m.. The program and featured speakers take place from 10 a.m.-noon.

“I hope Connecticut women find the time to attend this important event. It provides them a unique opportunity to lobby their elected representatives to urge them to support pro-business policies and legislation,” Boucher said.

Boucher represents the communities of Bethel, New Canaan, Redding, Ridgefield, Weston, Westport and Wilton.
