Membership and Meeting FAQs
How do I become a PWN Member?
What can I expect at a meeting?
Event registration opens at 5:00. Members have an opportunity to connect with other members and guests from 5:00-6:00 p.m. during which time wine and appetizers are served. Each meeting features a different speaker or panel of speakers on topics of general interest to business people typically focusing on business development, leadership, networking tips, mentorship and career management and development issues. The speaker program typically runs from approximately 6:00 -7:00 p.m. More connecting can occur after the meeting until approximately 8 for those who wish to stay after the speaker program concludes.
Is it possible to pay in advance for all 10 meetings?
Unfortunately, we can only process meetings on a month to month basis and cannot accept payment in advance for multiple meetings.
Can I bring a friend to a meeting?
Yes! We encourage you to bring colleagues, business contacts, clients, prospective clients and friends to meetings. Please follow the same steps to register your guests as your would to register yourself. The same fees apply to all persons attending a meeting with the exception of students who, with proof of enrolment in a post-secondary program, may attend events for a reduced fee of $20 per meeting.
I would be interested in presenting at one of the meetings.
Our meetings are often scheduled several months in advance, but we do accept RFPs. Please send your RFP for Vancouver speaking engagements to Stephanie Sanger, Co-Chair Vancouver at email@example.com and for Calgary speaking engagements to Karen Wyke, Calgary Co-Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will contact you upon receipt of your RFP to discuss the potential for you to present.
How do I become a sponsor?
Sponsorship opportunities are always welcome. Please send your sponsorship requests to National Chair, Michelle Pockey, at email@example.com and we will follow up with you to discuss details.
