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. 
  Join us and prepare to make some Valuable Business Connections !!
