Welcome to the Warwick chapter page. If you are looking for the opportunity to meet and network with other women business owners, professionals and potential new friends then come and participate.

Happy 2014!!! As the new year begins it is a time to reflect back on 2013 and determine what the future will look like. I believe we haad a great year in 2013 and I appreciate all of the support that I have received from our members and your participation in our monthly meetings. In addition the opportunity, to meet each of you has been a blessing.

As we embark into 2014, let me know your thoughts on future events, speakers meeting format, etc. As I have always said this is our meeting so I want to make sure we are hearing from everyone and adjusting as needed. So we can build a chapter that provides you what you are looking for in a professional organization through the sharing of ideas, educational opportunities, development of new friendships and personal motivation. 

If you did not get to attend the national event last year in NY, I would urge you to consider it for 2014 the date has been set for April 25th at the Marriott Marquis Times Square. Spaces fill up quickly so register early. I meet some awesome women there last year.

We will start promptly at 6pm and we get to sample what is made.. We will also have a drawing for a secret item, but you must be present to enter the drawing.
 
Please RSVP so we can have an accurate headcount for the chef. Thanks and have a super day.

 

NAPW March Chapter Meeting
The evening included a small contingent of members for this session. The weather took a turn for the worst and a few ladies had a change of plans.
The evening began with an overview of LinkedIn. Pipier projected her laptop screen to give folks more a hands on experience to conduct a session on how to build your LinkedIn profile. She reviewed what items generate higher search views such as:
·         Building a network of 500+ connection – start with prior co-workers, classmates, etc.
·         Using key words within your profile and using your summary to tell your story
·         Joining up to 50 group and choosing group with higher participant rates – when you are in a group you have access to the members of that group. Look for alumni, professional or items you have an interest in when looking for group to join.
·         Asking for and giving recommendations as a means of having a list of references
·         Uploading a professional looking picture – people like to know who they are doing business with
Pipier also reviewed items to watch out for in building your profile, such as :
·         Grammar and punctuation errors
·         Spelling errors
·         Lack of consistency/discrepancies in format and structure
·         Weak descriptions or job accomplishments
·         Unattractive formatting
·         Inactivity – you must keep your profile up to date
She also discussed why LinkedIn is so important to building your business or professional network. This included how to look for super connectors and request to join their network to increase your access to the professionals on the site. Pipier also discussed how to link your profile to your Twitter account so that you can update in LinkedIn and Twitter at the same time. This is only a good idea if you have a professional Twitter account. Your connections will not want hear about your general activities usually posted on a personal Twitter account. Pipier also reviewed the job search function on the site and how to use your network to gain access to companies and move you up in the potential interview pool.
Pipier then took the ladies through how to use the NAPW website to show them how robust our site actually is. Most individuals have not spent much time on the site to understand everything that is available to an NAPW member.
She walked through all the tools available on the site to build your profile and networking on the site (it is very similar to LinkedIn). Once again a picture is very important; don’t hide behind the blank avatar. Pipier walked through the skill building tools such as:
·         Lorman Seminars
·         NAPW podcast
·         Nationals Seminars
·         Mentoring program
·         National Meeting and
·         Local Networking meetings
This was followed with how to access the Marketing tools, Business and Career services News and Various discounts available to the membership and how to use the information provided on the NAPW site. Pipier shared that the discounts can be very helpful for small business owners or the membership in general especially if you like to shop and like to get a discount while shopping.
The evening concluded with general conversation and catching up with each other.
 Our Next meeting will be April 23, 2014
