“Going up?”

What’s your “elevator pitch?”

If you had five minutes (a short elevator ride) to make a good impression to a potential employer, what would you say?

Is there a right or wrong behavioral style? Answer: No, we just need to learn our style and adapt it to fit different situations.

These are just some of the things that class participants discuss in a Business & Professional Women’s 10-lesson “Professional Development Program.” And, this is just one of the projects that B&PW members discussed Thursday night when members met for their monthly meeting at Fab Studios.

President Sharon Billingsley and fellow officers Cherie Vaughn, Tara Bailey and Becky Barrick directed the meeting and encouraged members to sign up for the committees they would be involved in this coming year.

Will it be Professional Development? Or the Arts, Crafts & Gifts Fair? Do you enjoy helping to recruit new members? Or, maybe legislative issues are more interesting to you? Are you a social butterfly? The Social Committee could use you. There’s something for each member (and potential new member) to work on. Members get to know each other better as they work side by side to accomplish a common goal.

Glasgow B&PW is a local organization meeting together to help working women. Meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month, and members enjoy Peggy Bate’s delicious comfort food, which included meatloaf and strawberry cake this month. The group’s fundraisers help provide scholarships for non-traditional students.

For a chance to grow and learn more about yourself as well as others in this group, why not join them at their next meeting? Call President Sharon Billingsley at 270-670-7294 for a reservation.
