The Atlanta Chapter met on July 30; Angela Durden, Chapter President opened the meeting and welcomed everyone. There are 31 NAPW Members in the Metro-Atlanta area. Atlanta's Chapter will meet monthly and already have their dates for the next six meetings chosen. Angela introduced herself and let everyone know she would like to have everyone's feedback from the meeting.

To name a few of the NAPW members who attended: Tina LoCicero, embroidering business owner; Marsha Hunter, Library Media Specialist; Linda Martin, Goodwin Growth Works; Deborah Johnson Blake, Atlanta Tech College; Diane Brown, Commercial Real Estate; Kenni Howard, Nurse; Sandy Reese, Retired Corrections Parole Officer and non-profit organization.

A few of the members gave Angela feedback, here's what they had to say, Kenni Howard stated, "Thank you again for organizing last night's meeting for the NAPW. It was really a pleasure meeting everyone and the food was great - great choice of locations! I believe that last evening's meeting was a great start for a local chapter and I hope more members will begin to participate. My hopes in attending these meetings is to network with other women and to hopefully create some new and lasting friendships, as well as learn from everyone else's experiences and expertise in their respective areas. I left thinking that I may not have as much to offer as I do to gain. My expertise in critical care and emergency room nursing and now in the federal healthcare system didn't seem to mesh up with what others may be looking for - but I can tell some GREAT emergency room stories."

Another member stated, "Thanks for organizing last night. I came away feeling a good sense of possibilities to support one another in our professional and personal journeys. These kinds of relationships and groups take time, but I am definitely intrigued by the range of experience at the table."

The Chapter plans on having guest speakers at future meetings.
