In the month of November, Missoula Businesswomens' Network awarded Connie Slagle with the much coveted Flying High Award. Currently, Connie volunteers at the YWCA, teaching classes and making nutritious dinners at least once a month, sometimes twice, for the organization's groups of women in transition. At her parish, she works church dinners, events, and funeral receptions. In the past she taught Sunday school for 11 years, and served on the parish council for two. She is also a volunteer for Relay For Life and the International Wildlife Film Festival.
Her work history has spanned many professions. She taught ballet for 12 years. Along with her husband, she owned and operated a hotel, a bar, and a restaurant for 11 years. In Missoula she worked for an orthodontist for 20 years. Sometimes she cleaned houses and took in ironing to make ends meet. When her employer passed away, she found herself at a fork in the road and decided to change her path to a more entrepreneurial one, and go into business for herself as a professional organizer. Even through her business, she is helping people organize themselves, improving their lives.
In the past she served as North Dakota Jaycee Womens' Charter President, Alexander Women Lions' President, and charter board member of Opportunity Resource of McKenzie County. This last year we chose her as President-Elect for Missoula Businesswomens' Network. She has served MBN as Social Chair, Business Skills Co-Chair, and Relay For Life Team Captain. She currently belongs to Missoula Chamber, BNG and the National Organization of Professional Organizers.
She loves to host parties at her home for family and friends. It brings her a lot of joy to feed and entertain those she loves. This extends to those she feeds at the YWCA dinners and church functions, as well. She is a loyal, loving friend, mother, wife, and grandmother. She is Connie Slagle: Turning Piles into Files!
