Grand Junction chapter of professional women’s group in need of members
The Western Slope chapter of the National Association of Professional Women is looking for new members since moving its headquarters from Montrose to Grand Junction in March.
Professionals meet monthly in various coffee shops to share resources and network with others, and they occasionally listen to guest speakers.
“People can practice their elevator pitches (a quick presentation of their business), network and exchange business cards,” new chapter president Cinde Waller said.
The next meeting will feature guest speaker Cody Horton of Denver, who will give a presentation titled “Matrix of Persuasion.” The meeting will be held at the Business Incubator Center, 2591 Legacy Way, Wednesday, May 22 at 5:30 p.m.
“She speaks on conversational hypnosis — how to use words to get what you want,” Waller said.
The event is free and open to all professional women, she said.
The National Association of Professional Women gives several awards each year to its local chapters.
Groups that receive the participation award win $10,000 to give to the charity of their choice, Waller said.
The NAPW named Waller “Professional Woman of the Year” in 2012. She was also nominated Entrepreneur of the Year last year by the Colorado Technology Association in Boulder.
Waller started her medical device business, TempOrthotics, at the Business Incubator Center.
People can join the professional association at different levels and receive access to various NAPW resources, such as help with press releases and webinar opportunities on social media, Waller said.
To learn more about the NAPW, or to RSVP to the May 22 meeting, contact Waller at 970-201-1074.
