---- — WOW what a time it was.

The Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce had its annual Winning Opportunities for Women (WOW) event at the Blue Ocean Music Hall in Salisbury on April 4.

It featured key speaker J.C. Monohan, co-host of the WCVB TV show “Chronicle,’’ and other speakers. Nearly 300 women from various stages of career development — college students to retirees — enjoyed inactive networking, a vendor marketplace, raffles and meals, all against scenic views of the ocean.

Among the speakers was Burju Perez, a local woman whose company designs shoes for the popular TV show “Dancing with the Stars.’’

It was the 18th WOW conference sponsored by the chamber.
