The Milwaukee Chapter met this month to network and discuss the upcoming NAPW Midwest Conference in Naperville, IL. The monthly meeting was held at Albarnese’s in Brookfield WI, starting at 6 pm on May 4th at 2011.

Once members and guests arrived, they signed in and did a bit of chatting and networking. After ordering meals the chapter welcomed Teri and Renee to their first meeting and continued conversations that had begun during gathering time. The group then discussed the Midwest Conference in Naperville IL, being hosted by the Chicago Chapter. Currently, four Milwaukee chapter members are signed up to attend and there is still time for others. A few other members expressed interest and plan to check out the details. Those attending will work out travel arrangements and other details at a future meeting. Robyn reserved a room at the hotel for Thursday and Friday night. The four members attending intend to share a room to alleviate the expense.
