PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
Hello Lovely Ladies.
 
OCTOBER! Halloween! I really wonder what that will look like this year. I have a few friends and clients who go all out for Halloween, and they are planning to go BIG this year! I reckon after a quiet one last year, this year will be full of decorations, parties and festivities. What are your plans for Halloween?
 
OCTOBER! International Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Being a survivor myself, I can relate to how awful this disease is and how important it is to spread awareness. We need to increase the attention and support for the awareness, early detection, and treatment as well as palliative care of this disease. We can all help in one way or other, whether it be supporting a friend or family member going through treatment or supporting brands that give back for research and supporting those who cannot afford treatment. And most important, take the time for some important self-care – get your annual done! 
 
OCTOBER! Member Showcase! Once again, we will have the opportunity to hear from some of our members. I love learning from our talented members and secret word is awareness, and always come away with some great information that I can apply in my own life. Be sure to attend the meeting to support our members.
 
Our meeting this month will be held at Cocina Del Rancho, where we will have plenty of room to network and enjoy our luncheon together in a relaxed atmosphere. Be sure to register on time. See you all there.

Hugs to you all

Beppie Seinen-Mostert
RSFBPW President

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.

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.
