Next Event

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.

2019 - 2020 Theme: The Power of a Tribe

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 void a late fee.  

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.

How to Lead When You’re Not in Charge

It is said, “we are known by the company we keep”;  if that is true you won’t want to miss this year’s Professional Development Day!  Jo Miller, author, CEO of BeLeaderly and speaker to organizations like Amazon, Bank of America, Boeing, eBay, GM, Homeland Security, MetLife,  Microsoft,  Verizon and more than 300 organizations in 30 nations and 5 continents, will be our speaker.  Born and raised in Australia, you’ll love Jo’s insight and her humor.


This year’s title is “Five Ways to Lead When You’re Not in Charge”.  Jo brings a deeper meaning to these words with a discussion of leadership that will help us all, regardless of our position, contribute to our organizations’ success.  Leaders motivate and bring teams together so as a whole great success can be achieved.   However, you don’t have to be defined as a “leader” to do amazing things! 


In addition to the workshop, tickets include:  a full breakfast, goody bag, opportunity to win an autographed copy of Jo’s newest book “Women of Influence” (25 copies will be given away) and of course networking with amazing women!
