On behalf of everyone at the meeting, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ms. Behal for her wonderful presentation and for donating her time to help make life easier for all of us.

The NAPW Nassau County Local Chapter held a successful meeting on Wednesday, August 17th at Fuse Restaurant. Many new members and guests attended and the event was replete with highly accomplished, friendly and supportive professional women.

After reading the agenda, the chapter conducted a roundtable networking activity. Everyone introduced themselves and talked about their businesses. Chapter members connected immediately and even set up appointments to work together before the activity concluded.

The chapter’s guest speaker, JoAnne Behal, Facilitator, Coach and Speaker, was very well-received and members relayed their excitement about having her to Chapter President Rosemary Serra. JoAnne offered numerous tips on how to handle everyday situations that often leave people feeling overwhelmed. Members were invited to discuss examples from their own lives and JoAnne provided them with immediate solutions and advice. One of Joanne’s takeaway points was to work on the things you have control over, but to get through the things you don’t in a step-by-step manner, and tell yourself what a wonderful job you are doing along the way. “Give yourself some credit after all, you have earned it,” JoAnne said.

“On behalf of everyone at the meeting, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ms. Behal for her wonderful presentation and for donating her time to help make life easier for all of us,” Rosemary said.

After dinner, the chapter held a raffle and had a birthday cake for members celebrating late summer birthdays. Many attendees remained to socialize at the conclusion of the meeting and the group did not leave Fuse Restaurant until 10pm, two hours later than scheduled. Even the manager, Rolue, stopped by for some conversation.

The group is looking forward to the next meeting, which will be on Tuesday, September 13th. The guest speaker will be Craig Yaris, Chief Technologist of Esquire Tech Solutions. Mr. Yaris will present on Social Media for Small Businesses: The How and the Why.

“Please watch for further information regarding our first year anniversary as the Nassau County Chapter of NAPW. An event will be held on Thursday, November 10th,” Rosemary reminded everyone.
