This local group meets in Kirkland but encompasses the Eastside of the Seattle area. We are a diverse group of professional women and come together once a month to listen to interesting and educational speakers on various topics. It is also a great networking opportunity for our businesses and employers. We educate our members politically, personally, and professionally via diverse speakers, a Young Careerist program and an Individual Development program. Business and Professional Women (BPW/WA) is a state-wide organization with events three times a year at the state level. Come join us for a meeting! Non-members are always welcome.
Our speaker in April is Karen Lee. She will present a women focused seminar sharing perspectives on financial concerns facing women who are getting ready for or have recently transitioned to retirement. It discusses retirement income strategies, including perspectives around Social Security, withdrawal and reliance rates. It also addresses how to prepare for the unexpected, including market and inflation risks, and the rising costs of health care and long-term care. Networking is from 11:30 - Noon. Please bring your lunch and a drink to the Arete conference room. There is parking underneath the building. Meeting lasts until 12:30 pm with a business meeting for members until 1 pm. Guests are always welcome. Hope to see you there!
