Our Approach

Who We Are

Founded in 1989, our mission is "To promote a spirit of cooperation and understanding among members; to provide a strong network of professional contacts; to contribute to the mutual education and encouragement of members; and to achieve recognition of the contribution of women to the community."

Our Story

What We Do

PWS has approximately 40 members, including entrepreneurs, financial and insurance professionals, attorneys, education professionals and small business owners, who come together each month to network over professional development & well-being luncheons.

When Do We Meet?

Meetings are held the third Wednesday of each month, except during June and July, at 12pm. Networking starts at 11:45am. Members are encouraged to bring potential members as guests to each meeting. Potential members are then invited to join after attending one meeting.
