December is Holiday Giving at NAPW

Featured Local Chapter events:

Celebrate and Socialize
with Our NAPW Fort Worth/Tarrant County Chapter

It’s beginning to look a lot like holiday celebrations! Ft Worth/Tarrant County Chapter Local Chapter President Amy Fiesler-Garner and her team gathered together for a lovely evening of dinner, networking, raffles and gift giving. Members made new connections, enjoyed a delicious meal and participated in a drawing to be in a Business Spotlight presentation opportunity during their upcoming January 12th chapter meeting.

Pecha Kucha “Chatter” Networking
with Our NAPW Orlando Chapter

Spark some interesting conversations this holiday season! Orlando Local Chapter President Judy Alderson and her team will be hosting a Pecha Kucha night. Pecha Kucha is Japanese for ‘chatter’ or ‘chit chat.’ The Chapter will organize 5-minute stand up talks by various NAPW members about whatever they are passionate about as they enjoy the surroundings at a local art gallery.

Holiday Cheers and Celebrations
with Our NAPW Indianapolis Chapter

C’mon get happy! Indianapolis Local Chapter President Michelle Schreiber and her team held a Holiday Happy Hour to spread holiday cheer and to celebrate a wonderful year. NAPW members who attended brought a wrapped ornament with them for a gift exchange.

Holiday fun with great company!  The NAPW Forest Hills, Nassau County and Suffolk County Chapters joined together for an exciting Holiday Party. The evening included great food, great times and excellent networking opportunities.

Holiday Cocktail Party

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The NAPW NYC, Westchester and Bergen County Chapters joined together to celebrate the holidays and each other for a great year of success.
