October 31 ~ RSFbpw LUNCHEON
Dear RSFBPW Ladies and guests:

Happy Halloween!

As you know, our meeting in October is on Halloween! I have never been much of a costume person but have found in the past few years that many events I've attended have asked that we dress up. Now that I've done it for a few years - I look forward to it! Secret word is nurse. (You'll get a chuckle out of that if you were at last months meeting! ;o)!

How many times do we get the chance to be someone else? It's such a fun way to take us back to our childhood and just let loose. I think sometimes we get so focused on the bottom line we lose sight of the daily fun we can have! Your journey in your life and business is not a sprint - it's a marathon. You may find that there are times that everything is going smoothly and other times it's all you can do to get through the day. Lighten up! No one stays in exactly the same place every day.

Remember you get to wake up every day and start anew!

I'm looking forward to seeing how creative everyone can be and hearing our Member Showcase Participants.

Don't forget to get registered no later than Monday, October 28th no later than 5:00 p.m.

Looking forward to seeing everyone on on the 31st!

Wear Your Costume to Our October RSFBPW Meeting

Let's have some costume fun! Come ready to win Best Costume! Or wear a mask, hat or fun glasses. Please wear appropriate costumes to the Country Club! No jeans or low-cut outfits that might offend the golf club members.
RSFBPW Member's October Showcase

October Member's Showcase: Twice a year in October and April we have five or six of our RSFbpw women showcase something special related to their business, service, products, passion or themselves.

This is also an awesome opportunity to get to know several of our members in our network more intimately by hearing more about them. Join us in October to listen and learn more about some of our RSFbpw members.

Our Charity Selection for 2019

Every year the RSFbpw Board selects a different charity to donate funds to. We also invite members of RSFbpw to bring in monetary donations if they choose to participate. This year, we have selected Solutions For Change as our RSFbpw 2019 Charity.

If you would like to donate to this organization, you can bring in gift cards in any amount to our luncheons in October, November and December. Gift card recommendations include Walmart, Target, Ross, Grocery stores, Visa and MasterCard.

Solutions for Change breaks the pattern of homelessness and poverty for future generations of families. Homeless families gain stable homes where children can focus on their education without the worries of homelessness. Children finish high school, go to college and learn the value of hard work and determination. Solutions University teaches parents how to raise a successful household. The program includes counseling services,parenting, leadership, household finances, job skills training, work experience – plus housing, food, health services and childcare to give families a solid foundation to build a successful future.

Your contact and business information is placed in our directory, as well as on our website in the membership section. Please remember to update your information whenever it changes, including new photos and logos. You are invited to participate in the monthly drawing for members only by bringing and talking about your donation during the drawing portion of our meeting. You can place your items for sale on 1/2 of a table located in the back of the room before and after our monthly meetings, from January through October. You should arrive around 10:30 a.m. to secure your half-table. You can share a 20 second commercial during our meetings. You can apply to speak at our member's showcase, some restrictions apply. You can post announcements for your products, services or events on our Facebook Business Page and participate in our LinkedIn Group page.

Monthly speakers are the only ones allowed to place their information on the luncheon tables during our meetings. Due to the size of our membership, we are unable to send out group emails to all members regarding a special event or announcement you may want to share with members. Be sure to post your announcement on our Facebook Business Page. Thank you. 
Quick Links
Shout-Outs and Testimonials
We may run out of time at our meetings to share our testimonials for each other's services, products, and community announcements. We encourage you to write your praise and mail an email or note to the member who you want to applaud. Send your friends a special email sharing your testimonial about the member you are highlighting. Post your Shout-Out on our RSFBPW Facebook page and on your own FB page.

We offer Shout-outs and testimonial time at the end of many of our meetings, however it depends on the time left after our speaker has concluded their presentation. We do not offer testimonial time at our November and December meetings because of the length of the program. We encourage you to pass out your information, flyers, handouts and community announcements during the open networking time which is between 11:15 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. 

You may also want to use your 20 second commercial time during the meeting to share your business event or announcement with the group and invite interested members to pick up a flyer with more details in the back of the room. Thanks for cheerfully working with us!
A Gentle Reminder about Spamming RSFBPW Members
Members and visitors must individually ask each member for permission to place them on any form of mass communication-email blasts, newsletter lists, U.S. Mail lists or group texts. Without each member's individual permission, we consider this type of communication to be an act of spamming. To build long-term relationships with members please write personal notes and emails first and after developing rapport, ask these members only for permission to place them on your mailing list. Thank you for your cooperation.   
If you are interested in becoming a member of our women's Rancho Santa Fe, Business and Professional Women's Association, you must attend two meetings as a visitor, then apply for membership. We have 3 members per category, and if the category is not filled, you can submit the application to one of our board members for consideration. If the category is filled, we encourage you to continue to attend our meetings and network with our members. You can apply when the position opens. Any questions about membership, Contact Sarah Morgan at Sarah@SarahMorganPhotography.com or call 858-414-9646 or contact Dr. Deena Stacer at Doc@DeenaStacer.com.
