Winter feels like it has a grip that will not let go.  The sidewalks are coated in ice and my car door locks have frozen twice this year.  My children have had so many snow days that they now get up and ask if there's school today.  I really struggle with the cold and the cloudy days.  Even though I know that Spring is eventually coming, I have to be sure to take really good care of myself during the dark and ugly days of Winter. 

 

What do you do to take care of yourself this time of year?  Are you feeding your body the nutrients it needs?  Do you get regular exercise?  Are you filling your soul with positivity?  If not, maybe look at what you can do today to get just a little bit better.  I find that if I'm practicing good self care, that I have more energy, I feel better, and I'm more productive at work, leaving me with more time for my family.

 

Join me this month as we welcome Susan Young from Madison, WI to speak at our professional development workshop.  We'll gather at the beautiful new Pavilion at Aldeen on Wednesday, March 20th.  Breakfast starts at 8, and we'll finish by 11:30.  Susan's workshop will focus on leveraging the power of change.  You won't want to miss this one!

Member News and Events

Professional Development Workshop - sign up today!

Since its inception in 1981, the members of Rockford Network of Professional Women have met with the specific intention of joining forces in support of other women.  One of the more significant events that RNPW now holds each year is a Professional Development Workshop in order to inspire and empower women in our community.  This year promises to be another enriching morning of networking and learning.  Our speaker, Susan Young, has a reputation for captivating her audiences, and inspiring them to meet challenges with excitement, enthusiasm, and positivity!

In addition to providing a wonderful experience for the women attending the event, some of the proceeds of the workshop allow us to provide a scholarship each year to a non-traditional student; a local woman 23 years or older, wishing to continue or return to school to further her education and career.  Since 2002, RNPW has awarded scholarships to 26 women and these scholarships have been used to complete undergraduate degrees, advanced Master’s and PhD degrees. 

We hope you’ll be able to join us March 20th from 8:00-11:30 and enjoy the positive impact a day of reflection and learning can bring!  Registration is open until March 12th.  Go to rockfordnetwork.org to register today!
