A full three course dinner was served at Café Tuscano in Massepequa on November 10th to celebrate the one year anniversary of the NAPW Nassau County Chapter which is a networking group for professional women. The group meets each month at various locations throughout Nassau County and boasts fun and exclusive events to connect like-minded professionals in the area.
“Looking back at our first meeting in November, 2010 I remember we were only six attendees, one year later, a full house,” said Rosemary Sera, Nassau County Local Chapter President. “On November 10th, we gathered to celebrate our First Year as the Nassau County Chapter of NAPW. We celebrated with wonderful members and guests, delightful music, laughter, games, prizes, beautiful restaurant, great service and food.”
To top the evening off, the chapter was honored with the presence and talent of the beautiful Michele Kennedy from the Brooklyn Chapter of NAPW. Michele gave the audience chills as she sang in her amazing operatic voice, soft, flowing and heavenly to match her delightful personality and manner.
Rosemary extended an appreciative thanks to each attendee and mentioned that each of the members added delight, interest and support to every meeting throughout the last year. Through networking with NAPW, many have expanded their business services and have taken on other members as clients. Also, with recommendations, many grew their businesses through outside sources. The chapter has spent time learning about each other personally and about each other’s businesses. Every meeting brought members to a closer understanding of they were as professionals and helped build a deeper appreciation for what their businesses are about. The chapter reflected on how they expanded their knowledge in many areas through amazing and insightful speakers.
“I have become more and more amazed in seeing how many of us have formed close friendships, helped each other out when in need, supported each other’s businesses and taken part in the amazing volunteering efforts to support the community,” Rosemary said. “I have watched women of all ages and all professions, authors, real estate brokers, marketing experts, graphic designers, chefs and many other professions, share common interest and form business relationships.”
After retiring as a teacher, from the New York City school system, Rosemary became president of the Nassau County Chapter. Meeting friends, running her business, spending more time with her family and watching her grandchildren felt plenty enough for her, and then came NAPW.
“In my life, NAPW has added more business opportunities through networking, added more excitement with their wonderful events, built more friendships for me and provided more education through meetings and speakers. It has been a great year and I look forward to the years to come and doors that will open for me as a member of NAPW!”
