Nashville Women's Breakfast Club

Who we are:

The NWBC has 60 members and average 40 members per week at our meetings.  Our members include business owners, lobbyists, physicians, realtors, executives, CEO’s of non-profits, political strategists, and retired business owners and executives.

The Nashville Women’s Breakfast Club (NWBC), was founded in 1985 to network, learn about our community through speakers, and to share referrals and customers. Membership is by invitation only and members are screened to avoid professional competition. The idea is that members use each other’s services.

Where we meet:

The place of our meetings is Maggiano's Restaurant at 3016 West End Avenue on the front lower level. Parking is available in the garage behind the restaurant.

The format of the NWBC meetings:

- Gather at 7:00 A.M. to drink coffee and network

- 7:20 A.M. buffet breakfast

- 7:35 A.M. members introduce themselves and the name of their business

- Then the program speaker gets the floor 

- Adjourn promptly at 8:15 A.M.

The first Wednesday of each month is a sharing time and is limited to members only.

Our history:

In 1985, Lynn May was the only woman in her department of the bank that became SunTrust. She decided she needed some female friends who worked downtown. Lynn formed the Gang of Four with Suzanne Braden, Patty Bryan and Lucy Owen.  By early 1986 they had founded the Nashville Women’s Breakfast Club.
