During the Chapter meeting, the group of professional women also had plenty of time to introduce themselves and network with one another.

“Our monthly meeting was in the style of ‘networking 101’ and we met some new faces in our group,” said Petra. “Many of us established personal connections with the other women and we were all interested in business networking!”

The Chapter President announced to members and guests that the UCI Community Center (1083 California Avenue, Irvine, CA) where they were meeting for the first time would now be the permanent meeting place for the Orange County, CA Chapter.

“Everyone was very excited to make this our permanent location for our upcoming Chapter events,” said Petra. “Now, we can network and also bring our own food or have it delivered at a better cost. The flexibility is the key!”

The Chapter discussed inviting an official photographer who can commit to the group to attend future meetings and events, take photographs, and upload the pictures to the Orange County Local Chapter Page on

“Professional moments are the testimony for our growing group.” said Petra. “Having a photographer there to capture those times is important.”

Petra also stressed to members and guests how essential it is to attend the monthly Orange County Local Chapter meetings so they may benefit from such things as the presentation made this month by Dr. Diangar.

“Being an active member of the Chapter means you can participate in the regular meetings, such as the one today where a very special guest came to visit with vital information for us women, and many other Chapter networking events,” said Petra. “You may also always bring a guest or friend to our meetings.”

The group planned meetings and dates through next July and decided to cater the upcoming December luncheon meeting ($10 contribution) on Thursday, December 13th at noon.
