The Memphis office of CBIZ MHM partnered with the Memphis Business Journal for the fourth annual Super Women in Business Pre-Event Party on August 18th.  Linda Lauer, Lead Managing Director & Co-Attest Practice Leader, welcomed the crowd to the event and gave her personal support for the Awards, as well as the recognition it gives to the Mid-South's leading women decision makers. The 2012-2014 classes of honorees were also invited to mingle and network over drinks and hors d'oeurvres.

This year, the event was held at Sissy’s Log Cabin, a fine jeweler new to Memphis. More than 60 professionals enjoyed the luxurious jewelry and watches on display throughout the venue. Sissy’s jewelry experts were also available to provide insight into the quality and craftsmanship of their selection.  To make the event even more fun, this year’s Super Women were able to pick out any jewelry to wear and have their professional portraits taken.
Lauer, Executive Board member for CBIZ Women's Advantage, offered her insight: “It’s always great having a chance to interact with these amazing women at an event like this. This environment allows us to step away from the big awards and have the opportunity to socialize and network in a more personal setting. This is one of my favorite Memphis Business Journal events, and I look forward to hearing from these successful Super Women at the awards luncheon on Friday.”

It was certainly a glamorous night, and 60 of the Mid-South's most influential business women shined. To view this year's list of Super Women in Business click here. If you'd like more information on the CBIZ Women's Advantage, please contact Linda Lauer at llauer@cbiz.com.
