Both the downtown Chicago and the North Suburban Women’s Salons are growing and thriving. Salon is a monthly, evening discussion group meeting at Salon members’ homes and facilitated by Salon members and guest speakers. Every month a new topic is chosen by the group, and material links are then emailed to everyone to read. Email ChicagoSalon@ncjwcns.org and SuburbanSalon@ncjwcns.org for more information and visit the event page for updated date information.
