Zonta Club of the Black Hills Membership

Zonta is a classified organization which draws its members from a variety of businesses and professions in the community, giving Zonta members the opportunity to meet executives and professionals in a variety of occupations, whose work is very different from their own.

Membership is open to professional women committed to improving the status of women through international and local collaboration, networking and community service. Being a Zontian has many benefits including the intrinsic rewards of service, enjoyment of great fellowship and advantages of strong mentoring, networking and support.

 

HOW TO BECOME A MEMBER

The best way to become a member of Zonta Club of the Black Hills is to get in contact with a current Zonta member and ask her about Zonta. Let her know you would be interested in attending a meeting. You are welcome to attend a business meeting with a member to learn more about Zonta first hand. You can also attend a Membership Mixer held throughout the year – these are great opportunities to socialize with current members. Our New Member Committee Chair is Patty Nikkila.
