Dear Berkshire BPW Members and Friends,
Spring is finally here, and we’ve got a lot going on at Berkshire BPW!
With the spring season comes a new cycle of our scholarship program, and our Scholarship application is now live and receiving applications until June 17th. You can read more about the scholarship program, and access the application here. Be sure to check out our Scholarship Recipient Testimonials on our Instagram and Facebook pages.
Our mentor program is also in full swing, as our mentors and mentees continue to meet and check-in. I want to thank Karen Zink and Suzanne Engels for their leadership of the Mentorship program as co-chairs for the last few years, as the program has taken shape. We are so thankful for the work they have put into this program to help it grow. We are happy to welcome Guin Griswold and Vicky Layden as the new co-chairs of the Mentorship program, as the program continues to grow and evolve! You can read more about our mentorship program here.
What better way to usher in another beautiful Berkshires Summer with an in-person BBPW event? On July 6th, we will gather at Bosquet in Pittsfield for food, beverages, networking, and fun! Thank you to our awesome Programming team – Alisa Costa and Lynn Wallace for working to make this happen! We are so excited to see you all, perhaps for the first time in person, at this event. Be sure to RSVP to save your spot!
I also want to remind you all that BBPW members are invited to contribute content for this monthly Newsletter, which is to distributed to both members and friends of our organization – both in our community and beyond. We are happy to shine the spotlight on members as a way to help grow their business or post job opportunities. This is a great way to increase visibility for your business or organization, and for members to support women-run businesses and organizations here in the Berkshires! If you are interested in contributing to the newsletter, or being featured in our member spotlight, please complete the form on this page here.
Thank you to all for your support and membership.
Looking forward to seeing you on June 6th!
