Garden City, NY (PRWEB) March 22, 2012
The NAPW Minneapolis-St. Paul Local Chapter met for a professional networking meeting on March 6th. Sabra Brown, Chapter President, kicked off the meeting by welcoming attendees. Members in attendance were Joni Davis, Faith Richardson, Sherri Roseen, Dawn Stebbing, Rochelle Shirk, Kim A. Hanson, Sue Manning, Jennifer Struble, Monique Crusoe (Ms. Nique), and Diane Windingland.
Guests in attendance were Lavon Dennistown and Jessa Barrow. Sabra described the networking and continuing education opportunities NAPW offers. She also discussed the various member benefits of being a part of NAPW and the upcoming National Conference on May 18th in New York City.
“The NAPW National Networking Conference will be a great opportunity for Minneapolis Chapter members to network with influential women in business and women in leadership positions," said Sabra. "For example, Sara Blakley, founder of Spanx, and Star Jones, actress, advocate, and spokeswoman will be at the event, which is taking place on May 18th in New York City."
Diane Windingland invited all NAPW-MSP to the Spark and Hustle event on June 7th at the Metropolitain Ballroom in Minneapolis. This event will be hosted by Good Morning America’s on-air talent, Tory Johnson, and is a great networking event for women who want to build their businesses. Monique Crusoe will have a book signing March 24th from 5-8pm hosted by Louisiana Fried Chicken (904 W. Broadway) and hopes that all NAPW-MSP members will come out to support her.
The Chapter thanked Sue Manning and Dawn Stebbing who offered to host the next chapter meeting at the City Walk Club House.
"We will discuss more volunteer events and charities to support at the April meeting and will try to coordinate a volunteer opportunity at least quarterly," said Sabra.
The next 'Simply Networking' event will be at the Liffey in St. Paul on March 20th from 4-6pm. Unlike monthly meetings, these networking events will be held quarterly and are open to any member or guest who simply wants to network with other women without an agenda or schedule. The spring Simply Networking event will be at the Uptown Cafeteria for brunch at 9am on April 14th.
The next Chapter meeting will be April 17th at 4pm at City Walk Club House in Woodbury, Minnesota.
Sabra thanked everyone for attending and encouraged women to bring a friend to the next meeting.
