The Chapter hosted guest speaker Debbie Saucke who delivered an excellent presentation that helped the group of professional women better navigate the social media site, LinkedIn.
The Chapter continued to work on its theme of “Making a Difference” by discussing ways to make a difference in the community, charities and in their personal and professional lives.
Domonica Creeley, the Binghamton Local Chapter President, kicked off the meeting with a warm welcome.
She invited members to introduce themselves, talk about why they joined NAPW and what they would like to gain from the experience.
The group then discussed some of the member benefits that NAPW has to offer, and the specific items they have taken advantage of and found most beneficial. The guest speaker then took the floor to deliver her presentation.
