POWER Groups

Strenghten your Connections with Participation in a PWN Power Group

The PWN Power Groups are small groups where our members hope to influence each other and exercise real connections. “Power” cannot exist without relationships or communication, but power is evident in all relationships, so power is always part of small group dynamics. And yet, no single group member "owns" power in our groups.  Each group is facilitated by 1 or 2 long-standing members that rotate annually.  The goal of our Power Groups is to further connect one another through bi-monthly intentional small group discussions/gathering that include but are not limited to

1) what is happening in PWN, events, programs

2) round robin introduction of each attending member and guest about their business,

3) member spot light,

4) educational topic,

5) book discussions and more.  

If you aren't currently a member, consider joining! All groups are looking for new members. However, membership in Power Groups is restricted to one person per industry. Please contact the facilitator before attending to make sure that your industry slot is available. Please note that PWN members can only join ONE Power group.
