***The VIP Membership option includes all 12 lunches for the year at a substantial discount. The Regular Membership is dues only and your lunches will be purchased each month you attend. The PWWS membership year runs annually from the date you join. The PWWS membership committee will notify you when it’s time to renew.

The Purpose of Your Profile Page

The purpose of your profile page is to give us all a high level overview of who you are and what you do, but also a deeper dive into your story by you sharing some of your personal ups and downs and lessons that you have learned in your journey. Also, these profiles are a reference for you to learn more about our PWWS women.

At the next luncheon, when you collect a business card from one of your fellow members, if you didn’t have time to really get to know each other, maybe you can take a minute to read her story and find new ways to connect before your next encounter at a luncheon or special event.

We also use your profile and the business links that you provide to help promote you through our social media avenues.

In today’s economy, business is all about building relationships with people. It is important for us to truly get to know one another so that we can help support each other in our professional and personal endeavors.
