Our Next RSFBPW Meeting
President's Message:

Dear RSFBPW Members and Guests:

Happy October!  I'm excited about our meeting this month because we get to hear from more of our members.  It's always great to have such a vast list of connections for everything and hearing the details of what our members do is so helpful.

Because October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, I thought it appropriate to remind everyone to get your Mamograms.  We've had several members  with breast cancer and masectomy's in the past and I know they would encourage you to take charge of your health and get screened!

Also, this month Julia Uhll has offered to sponser our next RSFBPW social.  Here are the details - please, please RSVP so she can make arrangments for food, etc.    

Costumes & Community Appreciation Sunday Oct 28.
Costumes are Encouraged, not Required.
When: Sunday Oct. 28, 2018 2-4pm
Where: TERI, Inc 
TERI Inc serves over 650 Special Needs Individuals and their families. They have over 430 employees and have been around since 1980. 
TERI is one of San Diego County's Best kept Secrets.

November is our Holiday Bazaar.    This is an opportunity for our members to take 1/2 table to display sell your products to our members and guests.  Please contact Ana Nieto if you are interested.  

December is our Holiday Party.  We always pick a charity to highlight and raise money for.  Secret word is help.  This year we have selected "A Night to Remember Prom".  This is a charity that puts on a full prom including hair, makeup, dresses, transportation and all the entertainment for special needs kids.  Here is a short video!!  You can bring a check, cash or gift cards and gently used prom dresses and accessories to our next meeting and give them to Sarah Morgan.  I would love to have this be a donation from our club.  Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Membership Benefits

As a Member of RSFBPW:

Your contact and business information is placed in our directory, as well as on our website in the membership section. Please remember to update your information whenever it changes, including new photos and logos. 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. You can place your items for sale on 1/2 of a table located in the back of the room before, and after our monthly meetings, from January through October. You should arrive around 10:30 a.m. to secure your spot. You can share a 20 second commercial during our meetings. You can apply to speak at our member's showcase, some restrictions apply. You can post announcements for your products, services or events on our Facebook Business Page and participate in our LinkedIn Group page.

Monthly speakers are the only ones allowed to place their information on the luncheon tables during our meetings.  Due to the size of our membership, we are unable to send out group emails to all members regarding a special event or announcement you may want to share with members. Be sure to post your announcement on our Facebook Business Page.  Thank you.

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.

Have a clear and concise message. Screen real estate is valuable on mobile, so keep the content here simple and focus on the essentials. Think about the goal of your email. Do you want people to shop online, come into the store, share a sale with friends via Facebook - or maybe you just want them to read an article on your website? Whatever your goal, it's important to make sure you have one before hitting send. Optional Link
