The Women’s Professional Network (WPN) exists as a welcoming group of businesswomen who mentor, empower and advocate for each other and their communities.  We accept and support all, regardless of race, gender, religion, ethnicity, social-economic level, or sexual orientation.

A Promise to Our Community...

Dear Friends,

Earlier this year, the Women's Professional Network committed to acting on the necessary changes that ensured we were a community that served and respected one another.  This state of solidarity remains true, and we want that to reflect in our actions as we continue to move forward.

WPN was established in 1992 and has grown in many ways, including the acknowledgment of our responsibility to intentionally build a community that is stronger, more equitable, and more resilient than ever before.  With all growth comes transition.  Women's Professional Network will continue to look to our past as a way of enriching our future.  We will use our experiences to evolve our knowledge of inclusion, mentorship, and compassion for all WPN members and our communities.

We proudly share our revised mission statement:

The Women’s Professional Network (WPN) exists as a welcoming group of businesswomen who mentor, empower and advocate for each other and their communities.  We accept and support all, regardless of race, gender, religion, ethnicity, social-economic level, or sexual orientation.

WPN is here to help strengthen the leadership and voice of all women. We believe that women should be heard.   

It is Time...  To Re-build
                    To Support
                  To Inspire
                       To Grow        

Rockin Wreath Virtual Decorating Event

Dec 3rd 
5:30PM - 7:00PM
via Zoom 

Join WPN for a festive evening of fun to celebrate the holiday season and each other's company while decorating beautiful seasonal wreaths with the help of the talented Natalie Ransom of Pozie by Natalie. This is a great time to invite prospective members and show them what a great time the lovely businesswomen of WPN have when spending time with each other.

Bring your own wreath or order a lovely base made from natural evergreens from Natalie for a low cost of $30 each before Wednesday Nov. 25th.  When you pick up your base she will also have additional items to purchase to decorate with or bring your own. Natalie suggests ribbon, pine cones and other natural dried things, glittery picks and don't forget the floral glue. 

Natalie started working in the floral industry in Bellingham before branching out on her own as Pozie by Natalie in 2015. Her business is really about bringing joy to the customer through nature. She enjoys meeting the specific and unique needs of each person and occasion and loves the variety of her work for weddings, corporate and nonprofit events, memorable birthdays, precious new babies, a range of holidays, and fitting memorial events. Natalie loves that she gets to be creative every day because each piece and event are one-of-a-kind.

WPN Gala & Auction...  thanks to you and our community

Mission ImPAWssible

WPN's Virtual Fundraising Gala & Auction

Secret Agents... you are all wonderful, giving, and caring members of our community, and beyond. 

Thank you isn't enough, but still we want to thank all of you that donated all the beautiful auction items, your time volunteering, bidding generously and joining us for the virtual event Friday evening. 

We should have the total raised, donated and sponsored in the next couple of days... so stay tuned.  

Thank you for hanging in with us this year, as we pivoted to still support our deserving beneficiary Animals as Natural Therapy, who is also having to find ways to navigate the Covid-19 pandemic which has negatively affected their operation and efforts.  So if you weren't able to attend the event or bid on any of the lovely auction items, we suggest that you donate directly to ANTS at www.animalsasnaturaltherapy.org 

Thank you to The Bellwether for donating and setting us up in the beautiful Admiral Room and for their great service and support.

And finally... although we had fun with the 'Top Secret Mission' theme it is true that you are all AGENTS... Agents of Change. 

Agents well done...
