CLS BIZ ZONE
We are committed to enriching the lives of those in our communities and are also invested and committed to enriching the lives of each and every one of our members. With that vision in mind, we are ecstatic to introduce you to the CLS Biz Zone, a collective effort to facilitate development and growth in businesses as well as in our members.
CLS Biz Zone is an exciting venture that is comprised of 4 distinct divisions; each division fashioned to empower, rejuvenate and promote growth.
CLS IN THE CITY
Shop, Dine and Socialize with CLS in the City! CLS in the City is an innovative partnership initiative that is designed to promote local brick and mortar establishments while bringing added incentives to CLS membership. CLS in the City hosts shopping, dining and entertainment events at business. Businesses, in turn, offer an exclusive, limited time only during those events. A win-win partnership at its best!
Learning with CLS Educational Workshops
Classy Education Workshops are educational meetings reserved exclusively for Classy members to encourage growth in their professional and personal lives. These classes will offer a wealth of information on a variety of business and financial topics. We believe that although the women in our organization have already achieved a certain degree of success in their own right, there is always room for additional growth and improvement. Each Classy woman has an area that needs development, and if strengthened and addressed, will substantially improve her life and level of success. Ultimately, our goal is to support the women of CLS through social, cultural and intellectual development so that we will have the knowledge and endurance to pour into the lives of the people and organizations we care so strongly about.
CLS strives to promote and empower its member’s businesses on a local and national level. Classy Concessionaires is a division within the CLS Biz Zone dedicated to supporting and developing the growth of member businesses through networking, promotion and patronage. Our monthly member spotlight & special private events, which are held exclusively for our Classy Concessionaires, are just some of the perks that solidify the advantages of having the support of the entire CLS Family.
GIVE BACK CLUB
We endeavor to promote women in business and entrepreneurship and to promote those businesses through networking, promotion, patronage and more. We have programs and initiatives in place that are fashioned to empower, rejuvenate and promote growth for you and your business. Toward that end, we invite you to take advantage of the opportunity to lease virtual space on our CLS Virtual Vendor Mall!
On the Virtual Vendor Mall, you will become a part of an online virtual store, making it possible for your business to gain and enjoy MAXIMUM EXPOSURE — and all for a low monthly fee of $12.00! Other perks include:
- Become a preferred vendor of our online virtual store.

What’s more, 100% of your monthly CLS Virtual Vendor Mall fee will be used to purchase donated items to present to select nonprofit and community service organizations nationwide. For example, 100% of the proceeds of Vendor Mall fees can purchase toiletry and make-up kits for domestic violence survivors living in a shelter at Valentine’s Day! It is our way to innovate how entrepreneurs interface with their customers, as well as provide a platform for small businesses to give back to the community.
