Meeting/Event Information

The RNPW program year is September through June of each year.  Our meetings are typically the 3rd Monday of each month.  However, in September we kickoff the program year with an evening reception that is a bit more relaxed so that members can renew contacts, meet new friends, and learn what the upcoming year will have for informational and inspirational speakers.

2017 - 2018 Program Theme is: Perspective....Changes Everything

Each year our Program Committee works diligently to invite exceptionally dynamic women from the region to speak on their achievements—both the successes and challenges in reaching their goals. Read the More Info on each month's topics and register before the cutoff date to receive the discount.  

Non-Members/Guests are welcome to attend at any time up to 2 meetings before membership is required -- member referral is not a requirement to attend or join.

2018 Professional Development Workshop: A Leader's Story Matters, and...We are All Leaders

Mark your calendars for the morning of April 11th  from 7:30 am - 11 am for the 5th Annual Rockford Network Professional Development Workshop, where speaker and author Sharon Swing will speak on “A Leader’s Story Matters, and… We Are All Leaders.” 

Some women may not see themselves as a “leader,” but every single one of us influences someone in our life, which makes us a leader (whether we like that title or not!). Our story influences what we do and how we do it. Where did you learn what leadership looks like? What did your “tribe” hand you in understanding leadership? What have you chosen to keep, and what have you chosen to leave behind? Join us as we hit the pause button of our busy lives and practice the critical skill of self-reflection and listening to better understand your own story, how it shaped you, and how it can truly influence others. 

The proceeds from this event provide a generous scholarship (click here for more info) for a recipient chosen and awarded by Rockford Network. This “non-traditional” student is a woman who is beginning or continuing her education later in life, while often juggling work, family, volunteer commitments and college classes.

This year, we are also very excited to announce we will be hosting 50 young high school women from nine area school districts at the workshop. Each high school young woman will have the opportunity to learn how their story matters, network with professional women, and continue being mentored throughout the year by an Rockford Network Member.  

We invite you to join us, as a portion of your ticket will strengthen this community and invest in our future!
