About us

Join us the 2nd Thursday of Every Month at McPhee's Grill

The Templeton Women in Business lunch is a monthly meeting where we showcase a Guest Speaker, Business Spotlight and Non-Profit Spotlight that brings relevant topics to our Membership.

Our Guest Speaker speaks to the group for 25-30 minutes. The Guest Speakers range in topics from Marketing Your Business to Estate Planning and are speakers from throughout the county who have relevant topics to bring to our group. The Business Spotlight is a 10 minute speech given by a Templeton Chamber Member Business about their company. The Business Spotlight is a great way to market your business to a welcoming audience. The Non-Profit Spotlight is a 7 minute speech by a Templeton Chamber Member Non-Profit and is a great way for the organization to highlight their mission and values to our group. Our lunches are held the 2nd Tuesday of each month at McPhee's Grill in Templeton CA. McPhee's is one of the top rated restaurants in San Luis Obispo County and the food and service is top notch.

Aside from our monthly luncheons the Templeton Women in Business committee has another mission to raise scholarship money to give recipients aged 18-80 a scholarship to better themselves in business. The scholarship committee takes applications in March for our scholarship program with the scholarships awarded at our June lunch. For more information please call the Chamber office (805) 434-1789.
