Welcome to the New River Valley Virginia Chapter!

WHO WE ARE:

There is a fabulous group of over 60 talanted women in the New River and Roanoke Valleys that are members of NAPW at the national level. We look forward to meeting each of you. Our monthly meetings and chapter events offer wonderful opportunities to network and move your career and business forward through education, collaboration, and referral.

We are dedicated to motivating and inspiring members to build supportive business, professional, and social relationships in a fun, interactive, and innovative way.

Let Takara know if you would like to consider one of the open positions on the leadership team.

OUR MEETINGS & EVENTS:

At our monthly meetings we have a few chapter updates and we enjoy dinner and a presentation by a speaker. There is an opportunity (but not an obligation) to introduce yourself and what you do as well as share your personal branding materials (business cards and brochures) at every meeting. 
Perhaps you will be a featured speaker in an incoming dinner meeting.

We take lots of photos during our meetings and we send out press releases and announcements both locally and nationally promoting our members who attend. Being part of your local chapter is a great way for you to get noticed and to grow your business or career.

In addition to monthly meetings, we are planning special events for socializing and to get involved with charities.

Please check back regularly for updates and meetings announcements.

UPLOAD YOUR PHOTO:

If you have not yet uploaded your image, please do so. Its so much easier to say hello and remember names when we have a visual. Also there is an award for chapters whose members all have their photos on their profiles. If you aren't sure how to upload yours, just call me or send me a private message and I will send you the instructions.

SPEAKERS 

Speakers

We are looking for speakers for our upcoming monthly NAPW dinner meetings on topics that would interest women in general, women desiring to enhance/expand their careers, as well as women desiring to grow or launch their own businesses. 

NAPW does not authorize the payment of speakers. However, we do give them a nice meal and the  opportunity to showcase their expertise and business to professional women who may choose to utilize their services later or pass the information along to others. We will showcase their business online including in press releases distributed both locally and nationally.

If you know of anyone that our chapter might enjoy hearing / learning from, please let them know how to contact me. We are happy to have our own members as speakers also. Anyone interested should contact me by private message, email, or phone. Please include the title of your talk, a short description, your name, contact information, and bio.
 
Dinner Date and Location

We hold our monthly meetings the 3rd Tuesday of each month at Mama Maria's in Salem, Virginia.

Thanks for a Great Meeting Last Evening

Thanks to all the wonderful women who joined in last evening for the Entrepreneurial Round Table. It was great fun, highly informative and thought provoking to hear all the women who own their own business share what works and what doesn't in their industry. I came away with some new ideas for my own business. I trust you did as well. We will definitely do a similar event around being a manager in a corporate environment. Thanks again, Takara   Read More
