Woamtec Offers National Opportunity For Women Professionals
WOAMTEC Seeks New Chapter Directors Throughout the United States
“WOAMTEC is helping so many people,” said Kathleen Hawkins, WOAMTEC president and founder. Hawkins formed the group with a small circle of friends in October, 2007 to offer women a networking experience that complements women’s strengths—while building community and boosting business profits. Currently, numerous chapters and more than 500 WOAMTEC members operate in Florida and Atlanta.
“Women are powerful business people,” said Hawkins. “We are people-centered and develop relationships that extend beyond the boardroom, and WOAMTEC networking has proven successful for many members. We are excited to invite new professionals throughout the United States to join WOAMTEC by opening a chapter in their area. Our goal is to have at least one chapter in every state by early 2010.”
Women-owned businesses in the US employ 19.1 million people and contribute 2.46 trillion to the economy, according to the US House of Representatives Small Businesses Committee.
WOAMTEC chapter directors are compensated. Yet, many chapter directors site intangible benefits—empowerment—
“Personally, I have grown so much; it is amazing,” said Allison D’Anna who debuted WOAMTEC’s second chapter in Winter Park, Florida. “The more I become the essence of who I am, the authentic me, the more people want to be a part of the group. As people, we are disconnected;
Dr. Phillips Chapter Director and Realtor, Xiomara Rivas said, “I am a realtor, so my business is dependent on relationship building.” Rivas noted that her ability to lead, motivate and inspire has grown tremendously thanks to her position as a WOAMTEC chapter director; Dr. Phillips WOAMTEC members support each other and several charities. “I feel blessed and I appreciate the fact that I am able to offer support—personally and professionally—
Jennifer Lee, Orlando based personal empowerment coach and WOAMTEC’s national training director, is hiring women throughout the United States to debut new WOAMTEC chapters. A few traits top her list of successful directors. Lee is looking for women who own their own business or one who has a flexible work schedule. She notes that marketing and directing a successful WOAMTEC chapter requires approximately 15 hours each month.
Successful WOAMTEC chapter directors have passion for community; they are either involved already with a non-profit or they have a strong desire to get involved. It helps if chapter directors already participate in networking through professional associations or chambers of commerce.
Professional, successful women choose WOAMTEC because of its core values, balancing faith, family and finances, and because WOAMTEC provides tools for its members professional and personal growth. Members of the networking group develop valuable business and personal development skills through workshops, conferences and meetings, while forming close friendships.
Hawkins just announced the formation of WOAMTEC’s own non-profit, WOAMTEC Foundation. The charitable organization will provide resources and tools for women and children who have been abused, neglected or abandoned. The organization is open to all women and children, yet its sustained pool of participants is children aging out of the foster care system.
“Together, we can make a huge difference in lives,” said Hawkins. “Through our charitable efforts, WOAMTEC members will have the opportunity to share their unique gifts and talents with others. Those we reach can begin building positive, successful lives; we can help these women and children break the cycle of abandonment and abuse.” Kathleen and her husband, Jeff, have three adopted children of their own; they are active child advocates. WOAMTEC Foundation is the organization’
Nine new WOAMTEC chapters are scheduled to debut in August and September—growth is exploding. This is still a ground floor opportunity. Until now, WOAMTEC’s rapid growth has happened strictly through referrals and online connections.
WOAMTEC is reaching out to women throughout the US to offer this exciting expansion opportunity. A detailed WOAMTEC Chapter Director job description and membership information including professional benefits are available on the group’s website at www.woamtec.com.
Please extend this opportunity to your readers and members. If you are interested in becoming a part of this expanding networking organization, call the organization at 407-767-5417, or toll free at 866-757-2611. Follow WOAMTEC on Facebook, Twitter and LinkdIn.
