Members and guests of the Westchester Local Chapter gathered on August 16th for a professional networking meeting at Caffé Azzuri. Members and guests enjoyed Happy Hour half-priced drinks and hors d’oeuvres on the restaurant’s lovely outdoor deck. Praised by The New York Times and Westchester Magazine for its outstanding food and warm, casual atmosphere, the restaurant was the perfect venue for the newly re-launched Chapter’s second Meet & Greet of the summer.

Westchester County Chapter President Sara O. Speicher enthusiastically welcomed members, guests, and first-time attendees to the Meet & Greet.

“The Westchester Chapter is consistently adding new members, which is very exciting,” said Sara.

The President restated her vision of the Chapter.

“I would like to focus on building relationships that will advance the Chapter members’ businesses and personal lives,” said Sara.

She also invited all to bring a guest with them to the next meeting, someone they believe would benefit from joining NAPW.

Sara also announced that in future meetings, members would have the chance to be a featured speaker, another way to let other members learn more about what they do. At the Meet & Greet, she collected a business card from each attendee and drew a winning member who would deliver a five-minute presentation of themselves at the next Chapter meeting.

“In the fall, members will get the opportunity to shine as either speakers or panelists ,” promised


NAPW Westchester County Local Chapter Vice President Crystal M. Cutler kicked off the Meet & Greet Go-Round portion of the meeting by speaking briefly about herself and her business LegalShield, Inc. To all members and guests who gave Crystal their business cards, Crystal offered them a business listing in LegalShield’s GoSmallBiz.com directory free for one year.

One by one, each member and guest introduced themselves and their businesses to the crowd. Chapter member Cheryl Croce announced her participation in the Alzheimer Association, CT Chapter’s “Walk to End Alzheimer’s” on September 30th, 2012 and asked members to join her team, “Memory Caregivers.” Her goal this year is to surpass her efforts from the past four years by receiving more donations. Please join her team and/or donate directly at http://act.alz.org/goto/CherylCroce. Chapter President Sara concluded the Go-Round portion with a brief introduction of her business, VBM Pro and the benefits the business owners receive from working with a Virtual Business Manager.

Sara reminded Chapter members to update their NAPW Profiles and periodically check their NAPW email inboxes and that they may also find Westchester Local Chapter information on the Westchester County Local Chapter page on the NAPW website and the Chapter Facebook page.

Caffé Azzurri will be the backdrop for the Chapter’s September 27th meeting, as well as for the October meeting, which will feature Chapter member Thelma Jones, MD, FACP (details for the October meeting will be finalized and announced as soon as possible). Meeting invites will be emailed to all members via the Westchester County Chapter email inboxes and will also be posted on the Chapter Bulletin Board and Facebook page.
