FREE School Supplies, Leadership Changes & More!

NAPW Bethlehem Members,

Given the increased demands of my role as a full-time entrepreneur, I will be stepping down as President of the NAPW Bethlehem Chapter as of September 30, 2013.  I will, however, remain a member of the NAPW Bethlehem Chapter.

Note, that the School Donation Drive & Distribution Event will be the last event that I will facilitate as President of the NAPW Bethlehem Chapter.  Please join us Saturday, September 28, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. as we partner with the East Side Youth Center to distribute school supplies and get the word out regarding our local chapter, the businesses and professional women that make up our chapter and upcoming workshops at the East Side Youth Center.  Remember, you too can still volunteer to be a workshop leader at the center, while increasing visibility for yourself as an expert and go-to person in your field.  I will continue to be the contact person if you wish to volunteer as a workshop leader at the center.   Also, limited, free vendor tables/space is available this Saturday, first-come, first served.  (See the flyer further below which is currently in distribution).

Filling the President’s role in my place will be Nicole Buck, who is currently President of the Allentown Bethlehem Chapter.  Please join me in wishing Nicole well and supporting her as she transitions into this role.

As we move into the new season, Fall 2013, we can be proud of what we as members of the NAPW Bethlehem Chapter, having started with NOTHING have been able to accomplish to date:

* Membership Growth:  62% increase in Membership since December 2012.

1) My Sister’s Closet – Donations from 11 members
2) School Donation Drive – Donations valued at over $1000 from members and the community (to be distributed Saturday, Sept 28 at the East Side Youth Center)

Stay tuned for announcements from Nicole concerning next month’s meeting, scheduled for October 10th.  Nicole will be facilitating next month’s meeting at:
