                                                                           The NAPW Mission

                                    National Association of Professional Women
NAPW defines success as "owning your own power." As the largest, most-recognized networking organization of professional women in the country, spanning virtually every industry and profession, the National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) is a powerfully vibrant networking community with over 600,000 members and nearly 300 Local Chapters. NAPW members have diverse backgrounds, beliefs, perspectives and lifestyles with one common bond – their ability to succeed.  NAPW's mission is to provide an exclusive, highly advanced networking forum to successful women executives, professionals and entrepreneurs where they can aspire, connect and achieve. Through innovative resources, unique tools and progressive benefits, professional women interact, exchange ideas, advance their knowledge and empower each other.

Welcome to the New York City Chapter!

As volunteer President of NAPW's largest Local Chapter for nearly four years, and in the past year NAPW National Director of Chapters, I have dedicated my time, entrepreneurial spirit, professional experience and people skills to create a thriving community of professional woman. 

My new role as National Director enables me to share the vision, mission and goals of NAPW Corporate to all our Local Chapter Presidents.

Visiting Local Chapters, providing necessary support and guidance to Chapter Presidents through initiatives that are being created at this time is key to the growth of NAPW Local Chapters across the country.

NAPW is the largest organization of professional woman across the country, spanning every industry and profession. 
This makes us a unique, powerful and a vibrant networking community.

I look forward to seeing you at our Chapter events, the link below has our previous meeting minutes and newsletters for you to enjoy.

The New York City Chapter is a proud supporter of The NAPW Foundation, supporting its 4 philanthropic partners:

Girls Inc.
American Heart Association
Breast Cancer Research Foundation
Dress For Success

                                              Mission of The NAPW Foundation:
Making a difference in the lives of women and girls through service, sisterhood & self-help.

Best Wishes
Louise Newsome
