June 18, 2020 ~ FREE RSFbpw Virtual Meeting
PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
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! The past 10 weeks have been life-changing for all of us and, unfortunately for some, very traumatic. Now, more than ever, we need to be united in our endeavor to help each other, support local small businesses, and provide support and comfort to our families, friends and colleagues who have been negatively affected by this national health emergency.

Following on the Memorial Day celebrations, let’s continue our feeling of patriotism and unity with the celebration of Flag Day on June 14 th and then pay special tribute to our fathers on June 21 st . My dad joined my mom 12 years ago to dance among the angels and there is not a day that goes by that I am not thankful and grateful that he was my dad! Secret word is dad. Let us honor and spoil our dads on this incredibly special day.

As businesses, retail and recreation outlets reopen, let us be respectful of those around us and be especially kind and supporting of the many small businesses in our own areas as they continue opening.

As the landscape evolves, so will we and I look forward to the day we can, once again, meet in person. We will honorably follow whatever protocols that the Club has in place. Having said that, the Club has decided to remain closed until the end of June, so our next meeting on June 18 th will be via Zoom.

Let's pack the ‘online-room’ for our FREE June 18 meeting 11:45 AM - 1:30 PM.

Ashley’s outstanding work ethic results in patrons seeking her out as the advisor of choice and students thriving under her tutelage and leadership.
 
Ashley’s honest, and integrity fuel her passion for her client assessment and acquisition role at Business Incentive Credits (BIC). Ashley works diligently to educate and evaluate companies regarding their eligibility for tax credits and government programs that seek to stimulate the US economy. Each year the US government allocates $250 billion to offer financial support to American companies that show innovation in the variety of sectors. Although finding and securing these funds seems daunting evasive, Ashley’s relentlessness as resulted in small to midsize companies receiving thousands of dollars towards their company’s growth.

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.
