Spirit of Networking Award in May

The highest award given by VCPWN is the Spirit of Networking Award. It is one of our longest running traditions, beginning in 1984-85 and honors the person who best exemplifies the standard of networking. This is a person who readily helps others in VCPWN and in other groups. Someone who frequently participates in ways that benefit other members and the communities she or he is associated with, and who exemplifies the mission of the Ventura County Professional Women’s Network. The award takes place at our May meeting.

Members who have received the award in the last five years are not eligible to receive it again.
