Welcome to the St. Louis Local Chapter Page!

We have a very talented group of women in the St Louis Chapter of the NAPW, and our numbers keep growing.  I am committed to finding out how to make this chapter, and our meetings, work for you.  Please let me know what topics are interesting, and we will try to cover them!  We will also try to continue our book club at every other meeting.  These are not homework assignments, so if you did not get a chance to read the book, don't stress it. 

I am looking forward to growing our Chapter, and upholding the mission of the NAPW: "to provide the most advanced forum for members to connect with like-minded professional women to develop innovative business and social relationships."  We definitely have a forum to help and share with all of our professional and personal successes.  As the NAPW brand promise states-- we have a place to connect, learn, grow and inspire.  

I am already inspired by each and every one of you, and I am thrilled to meet all of you in person.  
We are planning to have monthly events, and we expect to see you there!
