“As a group we should focus greatly on topics that should be discussed at future meetings, guest speakers, board positions, which will allow members to become more involved, and charitable events we can participate in,” said Angie.

The NAWP Tulsa Local Chapter gathered at 6:00pm on March 12th for their first professional networking meeting at the Schusterman Library.

Members in attendance included Angela Yelich, Co-owner of Mattress Firm in Tulsa and the surrounding area. She and her partner have eight locations throughout the area. Lorna Jones is a nurse and also owns Designs by Lorna. Designs by Lorna makes jewelry made with real gemstone beads. Elizabeth Purvis is a Project Administrator at LW Survey. Kathy Beller owns Dentistry by Design. Regina Kring is the owner of Letters from Life. Crystal McElhannon owns Crystal Construction Services. Debbie Jaeger is an Administrator for SemGroup. Ann Nelson and Tracy Palmer attended as guests.

Angie Castleberry, Tulsa Local Chapter President, kicked off the meeting by welcoming everyone in attendance and asked members to network, introduce themselves and hand out any coupons, samples, or business cards that they brought along with them. She briefly discussed the Tulsa Local Chapter meeting agenda, upcoming opportunities, and events published on the NAPW website.

She asked the group about speakers and subject topics that would be discussed at future meetings that would be interesting and beneficial to the group. Angie asked for names and contact information of any potential speakers who would want to speak at the NAPW Tulsa Local Chapter meetings. Angie relayed that she had spoken to Cindy Morrison and Susan Savage about the possibility of speaking to the Chapter later in the year after the Chapter becomes more established. She also encouraged members to bring guests to upcoming meetings in an effort to further grow the Chapter. Angie then passed out a survey with future goals in mind.

“As a group we should focus greatly on topics that should be discussed at future meetings, guest speakers, board positions, which will allow members to become more involved, and charitable events we can participate in,” said Angie.

The survey was sent electronically to the membership through Survey Monkey and the results will be compiled and used for future meetings.

The group discussed charitable events and nonprofits they would like to get involved with. “This will be something the Chapter will further discuss in future meetings as we become more established as board members are added to help in this area,” said Angie.

Angie thanked everyone who came to the first ever Tulsa Local Chapter meeting and told members to check the Chapter’s Page for future meeting information and new events.
