Whether you are new to in financial services, searching for your next great opportunity or looking to grow you career to new heights, Women in Insurance & Financial Services (WIFS) can brings you the knowledge, inspiration, support, connections, and the innovative ideas you need to succeed. In addition, our NE FL Chapter provides you with the added benefits of stimulating breakfast conversations (See our March invitation to hear about the leadership and financial literacy programs of the Girl Scouts), “lunch & learns”, and opportunities to relax, connect and make new friends at our fun filled social events!
Indeed, in my professional life, it is the connections – relationships –that have gotten me to where I am. I have had tremendous mentors, great clients and wonderful colleagues — all have challenged, supported and connected me with their networks which, in turn, has helped me be successful in all my endeavors.
In fact, some of my closest relationships grew from industry social events, and as I mentioned above, one of the great benefits of joining WIFS is the social activities that are organized for our members and their guests. Our first social of the year occurred this past Tuesday and was even more special because we hosted it jointly with our sister organization the AFWA. Held at Painting with a Twist, we paired instructional art with wine, chocolates and a lively instructor who helped us produce our own individual masterpieces. For those of you who attended, we certainly hope you enjoyed yourself! For those of you who missed our event take a peek at the pictures on Facebook.
As the preeminent professional organization for women in the financial services industry, WIFS is dedicated to attracting capable women to the financial services sector, helping themdevelop their talents and advancing them toward their fullest potential. Part and parcel of that are the opportunities to network with others in Jacksonville as well as nationwide. Should you have any additional questions regarding our group, please don’t hesitate to contact me or any of the other WIFS of NEFL Board Members. We look forward to seeing you at our next event.
