President's Message

2019 Professional Women's Network of Monterey President - Carole Colter

Hi There.... and Welcome to 2019!!

Please join your new Board of Directors and me as we launch into this new year feeling excited and energized by the ideas pouring out of our new theme "Creating Prosperous Partnerships". We want this theme to permeate everything we do this year in the Professional Women's Network... not only within our own doors but the entire Monterey Peninsula as well.

Imagine being able to connect with other organizations in our vast community while you continue to build solid relationships within PWN Monterey!

Imagine having your business showcased in our community on multiple levels...reaching far more businesses and individuals than we have reached in the past!

Imagine what it will feel like when your fundraising dollars start being fed back into that very community by supporting other Women needing our leadership, mentoring, and/or financial support!

Imagine what a dynamic increase in PWN membership will do to your business exposure and networking possibilities!

Your new BOD has been working behind the scenes for over two months now in preparation for what we hope will be a productive and exciting year for everyone. 

 Although we are still building the foundation for some of the lofty goals we have set for ourselves and PWN for this coming year.... we welcome any questions or suggestions you may have. It is through "Creating Prosperous Partnerships" and working as a team that we will accomplish great things for ourselves, our businesses, and as the Professional Women's Network of Monterey.

And finally, a hearty Congratulations to Julie Ahern, your 2019 Woman of the Year who brought everyone to tears by sharing her spotlight with others... and to all our WOTY Sponsors, Generous Supporters, and Participants, without which this event would not have been possible. Kudos also to Kristi James and her amazing team for creating such an awesome WOTY Event!


In Business & Friendship,

Carole Colter
