It's the Guys' Turn Northwest Men in Business created

April 16, 2005View for printing

Behind every good man, so it's said, is a good woman.

Inspired by the success of a pair of women's networking groups, a couple of guys are starting a similar group for men. Dr. Jerry Bailey and Bob Dilley decided to form Northwest Men in Business, learning from the women the organizational process needed for success.

"My wife is already in the women's group," Bailey said. "With Women in Business becoming so big it helped her business."

Bailey is a chiropractor, and his wife, Pamela Langenderfer, is a naturopath and acupuncturist.

Dilley, owner of Odyssey Tek, also heard from his wife, Brandi, that she had clients in the women's group. "I was thinking about how great it would be (to start a men's group)."

"Let's be crazy," added Bailey.
