Our History

SWAN was launched in North Vancouver, BC in 1994 as the "Business Women’s Community Network" by Monika Kelly. The organization changed its name to "Successful Women Always Network" and Cathy Kuzel, with a group of like-minded visionary women, built SWAN into the organization we have today. SWAN is completely volunteer-run.
