If you are wondering what the heck is BAM, it’s just our affectionate acronym for Business Among Moms – BAM!  It’s fitting because the women we attract are full of awesomeness. We host events that support and showcase mom entrepreneurs and help them build their network.  We’d love to meet you and learn about your business.


2nd Thursday Night
6:15PM – 7:30PM
Katy Blevins Calabrese’s House

3rd Friday Lunch
11:30AM – 1:00PM
Katy Blevins Calabrese’s House
Pre-registration required


You will find a welcoming group of women (most are moms, a few are not) that are here to get educated, share resources, encouragement and network.  We encourage building relationships first, because people do business (and refer business) to those they know, like and trust. We don’t just sell to each other; we celebrate each other. Our events are 1 ½ hours in length.  The first 30 minutes are for open networking – grab a cup of coffee and a snack and come upstairs and meet and mingle. Small group discussion is followed by either a business speaker or our business showcases. We know you’ll come away with a few great new connections!

MEMBER BENEFITS While any woman in business is welcome to attend our events, members receive money-saving and business building benefits:

  • Free/Discounted Event Attendance
  • Private Facebook Group Membership to keep the networking going online
  • Listing in our Business Directory
  • Opportunity to showcase your business at a BAM event
  • Feature of your business on our website (annual, lifetime membership)
