Tēnā koutou katoa,
Firstly I would like to thank the executive for taking the reins in the last few months as I have had a run of illness and life stuff impacting my input into BPW. They are as always amazing and it is a great committee to be a part of so please think about joining the committee, which you can nominate to do prior to AGM in October (an email will be sent shortly with nomination info).. We will be looking for a new Treasurer, Secretary help and general members to join us in continuing to make this a great club which makes a difference.
We have an exciting couple of months coming up at BPW. We are changing up our venues for club nights with our August meeting at Fenton Street Art Collective. We’ll be able to view the art work, participate in a Gin tasting if you wish (additional fees apply) and mix and mingle whilst partaking in grazing platters. See the poster below and please share and invite friends, family and like minded women to the night. But get in quick with the RSVPs as places are a bit limited. We can match up drivers and passengers so please shout out on your RSVP if you are looking for a match up. In August we also celebrate BPW’s Birthday, so please dress in yellow to show your support and celebration.
Our September and October dinner meetings will be moving to Someday Cafe, where I am sure we will be treated well by Trish and her team. We will be voting at AGM on our future dinner venue and any changes to fees. For now dinner remains at $35 but don’t forget your raffle money too for our education scholarship fund. Our scholarship is still open so please pass on info to a local lady who might be keen to apply.
BPW Aotearoa this month is on “How to use social media to engage your community and customers”. The session will be run by Alice Kibble, Young BPW convenor and overall tech start up wizard. The session is on 24th August online via zoom at 7:30. As always these sessions are open to all members and non members, so share and register.
Our Meet the Candidate planning is in full swing with the session to be held on 28th September. It would be great to have some help on the night for a number of roles so please email if you are able to assist. Further details will be out shortly.
Looking forward to seeing everyone again on the 21st and enjoying a fun night.
