An Update from Amy!

The NEAWP board met on May 6,2013 for their spring board meeting. We are very excited to report some great things we have coming “down the pipe”.

With Bethany, Crissalane and Skip at the helm, the membership committee is going strong in 2013. They will be implementing a members only meeting, starting at 10:30 a.m., prior to a select number of general meetings. This extra bonus will allow our members to have access to a site tour & receive information and specials from the sponsors. members will have that extra networking and Q & A time.

The Committee reminds you to make sure you go online and check to see if your business is listed the way you want it to be. If not, go into your account and update it. Remember we have featured members on our blog. Reading it is a great way to learn about the members of your association.

Jason, Myra and Deidre have been busy getting ready for the remainder of the year with our meetings and programs. The board has nominated captains for the September Special Event Olympics. You can always form your own team or join an existing one. The meeting locations for the remainder of  the year will be posted on our website.  If you have any ideas for programs, do not hesitate to email them.

We will start sending out a survey after each general meeting. Yes, it will be anonymous and it will not take you very long. We want to know how to make the NEAWP experience better for our members.

Interested in doing a running club? this idea was thrown out at our board meeting and we are considering starting it. Email if you would be interested in showing off your running skills or just plan want to learn how to run.

In June, we will presenting the requirements for our scholarship program. Although we have had some conference suggestions, if you are interested in applying, begin looking for conferences that you would like to attend. We will be giving two $250.00 scholarships in January -June and July to December. Yes, that is 4 per year.  You do have to be a member in good standing. If  you are not sure if you are one, email

Our small business development groups have been going strong. Social Media, Event Talk and Book Club are always looking for attendees. Do look at our master calendar on the front page of the website to see dates when these are offered to you.

The philanthropy committee is enjoying donating your money. Keri will be updating our blog with the progress she has made.  We are currently raising money for kids to attend summer camps. Every little bit helps with donation to Perry the Pig.

As always, we would like to thank our generous corporate sponsors for supporting NEAWP: Premiere Party Central, The Flower Studio and ILD Lighting. Your support is invaluable.
