Hello Lovely Ladies.
I love the month of November as it represents the start of the Holiday Season for me. We start preparing for Thanksgiving, followed by various Holiday Homes Tours and of course, preparing for the December Holidays. We are entering a busy time for planning gatherings, visiting with family, and gearing up for the Holidays shopping season.
Our November meeting is traditionally the Holiday Bazaar, and this year will be no different. The Bazaar is ON! You must reserve a table to participate. Information below. Bring your products and display them for all to see. This is a wonderful way for you to share what secret word is products you have, your Holiday specials and introduce us to any of the new products you have added to your collections.
This month’s speaker will be our charity of choice, Humble Design. We are super excited to hear more about this worthy organization and everything they do to assist San Diego’s homeless families’ transition to a stable, safe and healthy environment. Be sure to visit their website to learn about the different ways we can all help them make a difference. We will be collecting donations with registration as well as gift cards at our November meeting. You can also donate $20 or more online DONATE HERE
While we celebrate Thankfulness during the month of November, I am truly thankful to each of you for the valuable support and encouragement I have received from you all this past year, especially as we transition back into a normal way of life. You are all so very special!
Looking forward to seeing you all on November 18that the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club this month. You must register by no later than Thursday, November 11 at 5 PM.

Let’s enjoy our annual Holiday Bazaar and a fun program! Our December meeting will be held at the Morgan Run Golf Club.

Hugs to you all

Our November Speaker – Laura Lavoie

An Introduction to Humble Design.

Laura Lavoie is the City Director of Humble Design San Diego, a nonprofit serving families, individuals, and veterans leaving homelessness by transforming their empty houses into personalized, professionally-designed homes filled with furniture and home goods donated by the community. (Think HGTV for people who need it!) More than a makeover, it’s a start over. And, it works. Nationally, nearly 50% of people who leave homelessness return to the shelters or the streets within a year. But 97% of Humble San Diego clients remain in their homes. Simply put, Humble Design changes lives for good.

Laura will share with our members about the mission and impact of Humble Design; about the ways our local business community can support Humble’s clients and work; and about how those with a heart for this organization can get personally involved in the business of changing lives.

Laura has devoted her career to connecting generous people with organizations that are meaningful to them and worthy of support. Prior to leading Humble Design San Diego, Laura worked in philanthropy at the Rady Children’s Hospital Foundation and The Children’s School. She is the mother of two young boys and is active in their school, her church, and her alma mater. Learn more by visiting the website:

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.
