We all learned a little bit more about each other and the different expertise we all have... We also shared what we want from our Chapter meetings.
Garden City, NY (PRWEB) March 05, 2013
Through networking, the group of professional women learned about each other’s goals.
Members and guests of this relatively new Chapter also spent time discussing plans for upcoming meetings.
“The NAPW Tallahassee Local Chapter met for the third time in February and we were happy to welcome two new members to the Chapter,” said Tallahassee Local Chapter President Urska Dobersek.
After warmly welcoming the group of professional women, the Tallahassee Chapter President announced that the agenda for the meeting was similar to previous meetings.
She invited attendees to spend a few minutes introducing themselves to the crowd.
“We all learned a little bit more about each other and the different expertise we all have,” said the Tallahassee Chapter President.
“We also shared what we want from our Chapter meetings."
The group talked about their wants and needs and how this can be accomplished at future NAPW Tallahassee Local Chapter meetings.
In addition, the women discussed potential guests and speakers who could come to monthly Chapter meetings.
After brainstorming about different topics, the women agreed that members and guests would like to hear from guest speakers who could share their experiences and expertise in such areas as leadership, how to successfully manage organizations, and how to deal with the issues within the company/organization experienced by any women.
The Chapter President then announced that the Tallahassee Local Chapter’s next meeting will be held March 26th at 6:00pm. She led a discussion about possible guests to invite to the meeting and attendees came up with a number of potential names for guest speakers.
It was decided that the Chapter would work on securing a guest speaker to visit a future Chapter meeting, possibly in April.
The following attendees were present at the Tallahassee Chapter meeting in February: Mary Ellen Gorman, Meg Payroll Systems, LLC; GinaMarie Senters, General Manager at Jims Pianos; Evangaline Benton, Ministry Assistant; and Urska Dobersek, M.A.
