The Milwaukee, Wisconsin Local Chapter held several networking meetings for professional women from July through November 2011. The meetings were held at Sheraton Milwaukee Brookfield Hotel in Brookfield WI, starting at 5:30 pm.
Members in attendance included Robyn Olszowy – President of NAPW Milwaukee, WI and Creative Consultant; Renee Love – Independent Tupperware Manager; Annalee Kruger – President – Care Right Inc. Linda, Renee’s mother, attended as a guest.
Members and guest arrived, signed in, and did a bit of chatting and networking. The chapter placed dinner orders and got to business.
Since the December meeting will be a Holiday Party, Robyn brought up the idea of everyone bringing an item for the Toys For Tots charity. Annalee also suggested the Sojourner Peace Center and it was decided that members would bring items for Sojourner.
"I will contact the Peace Center to have them speak at a later meeting and provide the chapter with a list of needed items that we can contribute," said Annalee.
Annalee spoke to the chapter about the book she is writing on domestic abuse, what kind of help is available, and how to get in touch with the help agencies.
Robyn conducted a presentation about her business, Stampin’Up, a creative greeting card company, and attendees were invited to make a card.
Dinner arrived towards the end of the presentation.

Members and guest gathered, signed in, placed their dinner orders and did a bit of chatting and networking. The group welcomed Debbie Frydack to her first meeting and presented her with the NAPW Notebook and Membership Pin. Debbie shared a bit about herself and her Insurance Agency.
Those present decided that the chapter will give Country Buffet a try for a new meeting place starting in February 2012. The group will continue to look at options of where to meet. They discussed putting out a survey of the members for when and where to meet to get the majority of attendees. Robyn will look into getting this done before the next meeting.
The December meeting on the 7th will be at the Sheraton and will be a Christmas/Holiday Party. Guests are welcome. If the group has more than 12 attending, Robyn will request a larger room.
January 4th, the group will meet at Sheri Weaver’s place of business for a Social Media Presentation. Sheri will look into making this available as a GO TO MEETING for those who can’t attend in person. She will also record the demonstration for access after the meeting. The presentation and Q&A session will be 45 – 60 minutes long. The group will be ordering from Jimmy John’s for dinner.
Several members shared success stories of how presentations at previous meetings have helped their business or how they grew from what they learned. A group photo was taken before everyone departed.
