Networking Activity Introduction
At a time when women are leaning in to find their optimal professional voice, there is a vast amount of confusion (and sometimes isolation) regarding what authentically works and how to implement without alienating those around you. Finding Authentic Boldness is about effective self-advocacy and becoming your own agent. It is about authentic communication and confidence that brightens your light and helps professional women get what they really, really want for their careers and lives. It is about becoming the best version of yourself to grow your practice, clients and business generation confidence.

Elizabeth Frisbie – Chair
FICPA Mentoring Program
Are you a self-starter looking for professional growth? The Women in Leadership Committee invites you to participate in the FICPA Mentoring program as a mentor or protégé. This year’s program will begin in July 2017 and conclude in June 2018. Mentoring doesn’t require a large time commitment – roughly 30 minutes per month. The Mentoring Program provides both a Give and Grow opportunity with the goal of providing a rich and rewarding experience for all participants. Sharing knowledge, expertise and insight helps create more motivated and accomplished professionals. Mentors are a powerful force for developing colleagues and associates within an organization or community.
If you want more information or are interested in participating, visit our www.ficpa.org/mentoring. The last day to register is May 15, 2017. Matches will be announced in early July or last June via email.
