May 21, 2020 ~ FREE RSFbpw Virtual Meeting
PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
Dear RSFbpw Ladies and guests:

Firstly, I hope that each and everyone of you are safe and healthy and practicing safe distancing. I also hope that you have the necessary personal protection for when you leave your homes. My daughter has made us our own 'designer' masks, which have come in super handy when we leave our home.

We have been notified by the Country Club that all events at the country club have been cancelled through the end of May, so, once again, we will be taking our meeting online on May 21st. Last month's meeting was a packed 'room', let's do it again!

The Month of May is a month of Appreciation. Along with Mother's Day and Memorial Day we see two other days that are especially special right now - National Nurses Day on May 6th and National Teachers Day on May 7th. Secret word is appreciation.

I n May we also honor Betty Potter Englishbee - Betty was a long time member for over 25 years and a Board member for over 20 years. In honor of Betty. I would like to invite you all to wear a pretty scarf to our virtual meeting.

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.
  
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 FREE May 21 meeting 11:45 AM - 1:30 PM.

Please scroll down for additional information for the format of this meeting.

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.
