Benefits of EPWNG Membership
After experiencing an EPWNG meeting as a guest, you will have the opportunity to apply and select your home branch and occupational category.
As a member, attending monthly networking meetings will expose you to more than 100 different industries. You will have the opportunity to promote your business and enjoy the company of other professional women at meetings, speaker and social events, educational seminars and through our social media platforms and website.
To allow the best networking with different women each month, we limit each occupation to two members from each classification per meeting. We welcome all guests and do not restrict attendance for guests based on occupational classification.
Each member may attend one meeting per month in her home branch. If space is available, she may attend another branch that same month too. Members are encouraged to bring guests to help expand the group and give the GIFT of EPWNG!
Membership includes exclusive access to our membership directory, our private LinkedIn and Facebooks groups, as well as our public LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram pages. You will also be listed in our public member websites page.
Professional Membership is $199, along with a $35 fee for each meeting attended once we begin to meet in person again; this includes breakfast. Events outside monthly meetings with a charge are in addition to membership fees.
Enhanced Membership is $299, which includes a social media spotlight and your logo placed on the epwng.com website. The $35 meeting fee will be required for each meeting attended when we begin to meet in person again. Events outside monthly meetings with a charge are in addition to membership fees.
Business Membership, offered as "Professional" is $375 or "Enhanced" is $475 with the same benefits applying. A business membership is for a primary and a secondary member from the same company/business/firm. Additional members added to a Business Membership will cost $150 each. The primary member applies for the membership and must meet our membership requirements whereas the secondary member does not have the same requirements. This allows for a more seasoned professional to share EPWNG with a newer professional. The members sharing the Business Membership may not attend the same meetings each month (except for the introductory meeting for the secondary member) and must self monitor their attendance.
National Virtual Membership, offered as "Professional" is $199 or "Enhanced" is $299 with the same benefits applying. A National Virtual member may attend once a month, a National Virtual monthly meeting. In person meeting attendance will be limited to two (2) per calendar year membership and the $35 meeting fee will be assessed at registration. Events with a charge are in addition to the membership fee.
Combo Membership, is a National Virtual add on to a "Professional" or "Enhanced" local membership. The cost is an additional $150 to the chosen membership fee. This membership level allows for the member to attend the National Virtual meeting once a month and to also attend an in person meeting or local virtual meeting once a month.
