Jacksonville NAPW Chapter's vision is to create a supportive atmosphere where positive, professional and diverse women can meet, network, inspire, learn and grow ~ both professionally and socially. For membership information please go to  National dues cover membership and provide many benefits nationally and locally.  We hope you will want to join and contribute to make the Jacksonville NAPW chapter an integral part of your personal and professional business development and growth.

Jacksonville NAPW local chapter meetings are held during lunch on the second Monday of each month between 11:30 - 1 pm.  There are no local dues and the only cost will be what you may order off the menu. Currently our meetings are at Seasons 52 in the St Johns Town Center.  You may attend up to 2 meetings without becoming a member to determine if NAPW will be beneficial to you. 

When attending our local NAPW chapter meeting you will find amazing women who enjoy working together to benefit our community in charitable giving and empowering each other by supporting, encouraging, inspiring and building up one another. We also have fun, interactive networking events to expand our expertise into becoming valuable resources for each other.  Each of us brings to the table our own talents.  This collaborative support group can be a powerful instrument of change within ourselves and around the world if we remain unified in our efforts! We sincerely hope you will want to be a part of our chapter to bring your talents and expertise and make valuable business connections.

Invest in yourself... we look forward to being inspired by you!  Hope to see you at our next meeting!  RSVP by contacting Carolyn Ward at or calling (904) 616-9946.

Next Meeting - Monday, October 13, 2014

Seasons 52 - St Johns Town Center,  Jacksonville, FL
Bring your business cards and promotional materials
to share with our members and guests!  

Our featured speaker will be Brad Raney, motivational business coach and speaker.

We each face daily obstacles in the climb up our personal mountain.
Those individual challenges – or “mountain goats” – come to life in many forms...
poor work performance; lack of confidence; bad decisions; fear of change;
negative people and many more. 
What if you could master the climbing skills necessary to reach your personal summit -
strategies and tools that could literally change your life? 
In this 25 minute high-energy, fun, interactive and motivating mini-workshop, author, speaker and trainer Brad Raney will share simple, proven and highly effective steps to help you reach your peak at work, in relationships, and throughout your life! Stop waiting around for the lightning bolt of change! Take control of your climb and conquer your fear of heights! Any obstacle you face will seem smaller after you attend "Climbing Your Personal Mountains!"
During this mini-workshop you will learn:
* What's on your personal mountain
* How to use the 7 essential climbing tools
* Ways to create your own "thrivi-val" guide
* Skills to fight the "mountain goats" of setbacks 

ALSO - Our upcoming event with BASCA is Friday, October 17th at the
beautiful San Jose Country Club from 6-10 PM!  Please bring something that we can use for a Silent or Live Auction Item that we can use to increase our donation for a great local charity that focuses on supporting and
housing developmentally disabled young adults.
