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.

2020 - 2021 Theme: Resilient

Definition:  The power or ability to return to the original form, position, etc., after being bent, compressed, or stretched, elasticity. Ability to recover readily from illness, depression, adversity, or the like; buoyancy.


The programs will have 6 Pillars to becoming resilient.


Self-care-mind, body


Meaningful Relationships




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.
