I am continually inspired by our members. As empowered professional women, we make history every day!

NAPW members were inspired and empowered by the many achievements of women today and yesterday as they recognized Women’s History Month and Women Entrepreneurs. At Local Chapter meetings around the US, professional women gathered to recognize all that women have accomplished in the past and the present, and celebrated the enduing entrepreneurial spirit that is so evident among NAPW members.

“In March, Local Chapters honored the many accomplishments of women in the past and celebrated our very own entrepreneurs,” said NAPW President Star Jones. “I am continually inspired by our members. As empowered professional women, we make history every day!”

NAPW’s eChapter on March 9th‒Her Story: The Inspiring Stories of NAPW Women Entrepreneurs‒ featured a panel of NAPW women business owners and engaged members across the country who tuned in to once again to be inspired and informed. NAPW’s eChapter continues to grow and now has more than 13,000 members.

In NAPW’s Western Region, Local Chapter Presidents and Leadership Team members set sail for a three-day networking cruise on the Carnival Inspiration. In between excursions to Ensenada, Mexico, the women attended workshops and brainstormed on such topics as board development, leadership, marketing and membership engagement.

Back on land, members in Tacoma, WA; Tucson, AZ and West Denver, CO, networked at Local Chapter meetings that celebrated women’s impact on history and women entrepreneurs’ impact on the business world.

Among NAPW’s Eastern Region, the NYC Local Chapter led the way in recognizing Women’s History Month when they joined forces to support the placing of the very first statue honoring women in Central Park.

“Our registration donations were earmarked for The Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony Statue Fund Inc.,” said Louise Newsome, NAPW National Director of Local Chapters and NYC Chapter President. “We were thrilled to be a part of this exciting initiative!”

Other Local Chapters in NAPW’s Eastern Region, including Aventura, Orlando, Pembroke Pines, FL; Midlothian, VA; Providence, RI and Rochester, NY, celebrated the accomplishments of women past and present by welcoming guest speakers and women entrepreneurs who shared their stories of success at networking events.
