Garden City, NY (PRWEB) October 18, 2012
Members and guests of the NAPW Westchester County, NY Local Chapter gathered for its third professional networking meeting at Caffé Azzurri on September 27th. Chapter President Sara O. Speicher kicked off the meeting by welcoming four new members and announcing that since its re-launch in July, the Chapter has added a total of 21 new members.
“I am thrilled to report the NAPW Westchester County Local Chapter is now 145 members strong,” said Sara. “And that number keeps growing!”
To keep the momentum and excitement about the Chapter going, Sara distributed Chapter Surveys to attendees in order to gather more information when it comes to planning future meetings and events. Members and guests were also encouraged by Sara to check out the Westchester County Local Chapter Page on the NAPW website for the latest Chapter news.
To help members enjoy the full benefits of their NAPW memberships, Westchester County Local Chapter Vice President Crystal M. Cutler presented ‘A Wealth of Resources,’ which was an open discussion on the resources available to members of NAPW and the Westchester County Local Chapter.
“Crystal spoke about various services that are available to NAPW members, and how by using them, members can enhance their lives, businesses, and careers,” said the Chapter President.
“Attendees then participated in a lively discussion, sharing their resources and ideas about increasing our activities.”
At the end of the meeting, Sara announced the upcoming Chapter schedule and encouraged members to attend and bring guests. She reminded attendees of the guest policy: a guest may attend two Chapter meetings before she is asked to join NAPW.
