Members and guests of the NAPW Southeastern Michigan Local Chapter gathered on March 26th for a professional networking meeting at Peer Chiropractic Wellness Center in Rochester Hills.

It was the Chapter’s official launch event.

Two guest speakers, Chiropractor Dr. Adeela Peer, and Author, Illustrator, and Speaker Greg Stanley, shared their wisdom and advice with the group of professional women.

The official Chapter event was kicked off when Virginia Gronley, Southeastern Michigan Chapter President, welcomed everyone and provided launch materials that included NAPW pins, post-it notes, journals, and brochures.

Each member gave a short introduction of themselves and then Dr. Adeela Peer, a Chapter member and the host for the evening, along with Greg Stanley, the keynote speaker, were introduced.

“Dr. Adeela Peer gave an informative presentation on the importance of proper posture, how the spine plays a role in peoples’ daily lives, and the importance of proper nutrition,” said the Chapter President.

The Chiropractor provided an overview of Zerona, a noninvasive body contouring method, laser treatment, and chiropractic treatment along with a tour of the facility. At the conclusion of her presentation, Dr. Peer was presented with a gift card as a thank you.

“The keynote speaker for the launch meeting was Greg Stanley,” said Virginia. “Greg is an Author, Illustrator and Speaker and his book, The Toonalution of Big Business, is a fun and creative perspective on the business world.”

Mr. Stanley took the Southeastern Michigan Chapter through the process of how to go from a Gilligan to a MacGyver and become an employee that is considered an asset.

The presentation was then concluded with a fun cartoon exercise at the end. The keynote speaker was thanked with a candy bouquet.

“During the meeting, members and guests were asked to distribute business cards as part of the networking exercise and a drawing for three gift cards was conducted.

Stephanie Holland, Dr. Adeela Peer, and Sandra Kiesel were the proud winners of the gift cards!” said the Chapter President.

Virginia led the group of professional women in a discussion about the NAPW National Networking Conference on April 26th in New York, and the 2013 NAPW Rising Stars Education Scholarship Program.

In April, a discussion about the nomination of a Southeastern Michigan Event Coordinator, Secretary, and charity will be on the agenda.

All future Chapter meetings will be held on the fourth Tuesday of each month from 6:00 to 7:30pm at The Corner Clock Restaurant (unless otherwise specified on the Southeastern Michigan Chapter Page).

The next Chapter meeting is April 23rd.
