In September 2017 we had the most incredible weekend in Muskoka, Ontario. We invited 12 of our GBC hosts from mostly Ontario based chapters to join us- although we did have the ever so lovely Linda from our Jacksonville, Florida chapter to represent our wonderful Southern neighbors. Not only was the weather beyond perfect but the company was spot on as we discussed best practices and ways to collaborate with each other. It was a good mix of long standing clubs (Ottawa) and brand new chapters (Hamilton) and everyone left not only with some good ideas on how to grow their own chapters but also having learnt something new about themselves. Win, Win! As for me – the founder, I experienced an incredible sense of pride knowing that these are the women who represent the GBC brand and will take forward our message while transforming lives in their own communities.
Thank you ladies. You are the best.
I am writing to share an update on behalf of all of us at The Girly Book Club as we manage COVID-19. As we all know, the events of the past days and weeks have been unprecedented and our team continues to monitor and navigate this rapidly changing situation with the rest of the world.
At the GBC, we care deeply about doing what we can to keep our people and communities well – we are grounded in this intention, which makes difficult choices a little easier to make.
As a result, we have cancelled ALL of our global in-person monthly meetings for March. As a result, we will be holding a GLOBAL GBC Book Club, which we hope will appeal to our members far and wide (more info below.)
We’ll be honoring all tickets sold for March meetings and transferring them to April’s meetings or you can request a refund if you’d prefer.
