PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Dear RSFbpw Ladies and guests:

There is a lot happening in our world right now and I am sure that you are all working at adjusting to the new normal. At this time, we are all looking for ways to adapt in order to serve our clients, but most importantly, continue our connectivity with our families, friends and clients. This Pandemic had a beginning, we're in the middle and it will come to an end. We need to support one another in the middle so that at the end of it we emerge wiser and better equipped. 
 
It is my belief that tough times do not last, tough people do. As a fellow business owner, I also think it’s important that we remain optimistic and care for those around us. Let us support one another in any way we can.
 
While most are working remotely, your Board decided that we would go ahead with our April meeting and we’re going to take it online!
 
As the landscape evolves, so will we and I look forward to the day that we can, once again, meet in person.
 
Let's pack the ‘online-room’ for our April 16th meeting 11:45 AM - 1:30 PM.

Please scroll down for additional information for the format of this meeting.
All members will be emailed the registration link to the meeting the day before on April 15. Register now by clicking here

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.

Monthly speakers are the only ones allowed to place their information on the luncheon tables during our meetings.

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.
