Your RSFBPW Yearly Dues are Due by Jan 31!
June 17, 2021 ~ FREE RSFbpw Virtual Meeting
Dear RSFBPW Ladies and guests:

Wow! Just like that May is gone and June is upon us – almost the middle of the year and more than halfway through Spring!
Following the Memorial Day celebrations, let’s continue our feeling of patriotism and unity with the celebration of Flag Day on June 14th and then pay special tribute to our fathers on June 20th. My dad joined my mom 13 years ago to dance amongst the angels and there is not a day that goes by that I am not thankful and grateful that he was my dad! Let us honor and spoil our dads on this incredibly special day.
June 20th is also the official start of SUMMER! And summer in San Diego is awesome! What are your plans for the summer? Last year my plans for a trip to Europe were tossed out the window, however, I am now back to the planning phase for our next trip.... I am sure that many of you are eager to travel and enjoy the summer. Be sure to let us know at our next meeting what exciting trip you have planned.

As businesses reopen and our lives seem to be returning to what one would believe to be a normal way of life, let us still be respectful of those around us who are suffering and be especially kind and supporting of the many small businesses in our neighborhoods. I plan to continue to shop locally as much as I can as it is these small businesses that are the backbone of our local economy.
As we plan our first in person meeting for July, we are announcing that our last virtual meeting will be our June meeting. Let us make it a celebration! Let us make it a bumper meeting to say our goodbyes to virtual meetings and ring in a new beginning for RSFbpw as we plan our July in-person meeting at Yanni's Restaurant in Scripps Ranch. Secret word is vacation! See you all on June 17th.

Our Special June Speaker is 10 News Anchor
Jim Patton!!!
Jim Patton is a Weekend Morning Anchor and Morning Reporter for 10 News.

Jim has been a television news journalist in San Diego for 14 years; having covered several major stories including the wildfires of 2003 and 2007, the Opening of Petco Park, the La Jolla Landslide, border issues, Occupy Wall Street, and the Mayor Bob Filner Scandal.

Born in San Francisco, Jim spent his childhood in the Bay Area before his family moved to Stockton in the San Joaquin Valley. He graduated from U.C. Berkeley with a major in History.

Out of college he worked as an assistant in a top Hollywood Talent Agency, a television studio Page, and even a Disc Jockey on a Caribbean cruise ship. His first job on-camera was for the County of Los Angeles hosting and helping to produce a magazine show called Parks Are for People. That show lead to his first community cable news work for the City of West Covina, which opened the door to broadcast news in Palm Springs, Oklahoma City and San Diego.

Jim has been honored with 13 regional Emmy Awards and many more nominations. He's been an avid runner since his track days in high school and college and enjoys sailing and playing chess.

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 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.

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 - Director of Membership at or call 858-414-9646
