May 23rd ~ RSFbpw Luncheon-Meeting
President's Message
Dear RSFBPW Ladies and guests:

Happy May!!! I hope you had an opportunity to see the Super Bloom this year! It was truly breathtaking and well worth the traffic and time it took to get there.It made all the rain and cold we've had a little easier to deal with!!

May represents the month of appreciation for so many amazing women! May 6th is National Nurses Day, May 7th is Teacher Appreciation Day, May 10th is Military Spouse Appreciation Day, May 12th is Mother's Day and May 27th is Memorial Day. Secret word is thanks. We have many opportunities to appreciate those in service. Why not make it your mission this year to send a special card to someone in each of those categories, telling them know how much they mean to you. It always makes me feel good when I acknowledge the efforts of others. I'm sure we've all received the unexpected card in the mail and had it change our whole day! I hope you will take the time this month to say Thank you!

Looking forward to hearing our amazing speaker from the Del Mar Race Track this month! Maybe she can even give us a few pointers on betting on the long shots!! See everyone on the 23rd!

Monthly speakers are the only ones allowed to place their information on the luncheon tables during our meetings.

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.
