    Since I joined last year this is the first time I’ve ever seen this newsletter or whatever it is. I don’t have time now to view it more closely but I will be checking out all the partners sites and what is going on or was as well.

      Hello Bonnie,

      The NAPW Member Connections Newsletter is sent out the first week of each month to all NAPW members. Be sure that you have us in your “safe” email addresses so that our emails don’t end up in your span folder.
