We Want You!

icon-1623888_640PWN is looking to add a few more great leaders to our Board of Directors team; are you interested?

The board consists of busy professional women who understand that family comes first; have a desire to lift up and support women in the corridor; who are willing to bring creative ideas to the board meetings that may enhance and evolve our membership and events.

Our current 2016 Board of Directors has taken amazing strides in increasing the PWN membership and we don’t want to lose that momentum. We are looking for a few more talented individuals to help us create even more buzz about this awesome group!

Are you worried about the time commitment this might take? Here’s a brief list of expectations from the board, but we are very flexible.

  • Board members are elected to serve for three-year terms, with a minimum of four board members elected each year.
  • Board members are expected to attend each board meeting the third Tuesday of the month.
  • Board members are expected to attend each General Meeting Luncheon the fourth Thursday of the month. (No meetings in June or December.)
  • Board members are expected to conduct themselves keeping in line with the PWN motto “Strengthening Professions, Developing Networks, Exchanging Knowledge,” while honoring our tradition of “Women Helping Women.”

Applications are being accepted through October, so submit yours today. We would love to have you join our team!

PWN Featured Member: Samantha Valenta, Choice Floors, Ltd.

Samantha ValentaThis month’s featured member is Samantha Valenta, Sales Agent for Choice Floors, Ltd.

In 2014 Samantha Valenta started working with a new company, Choice Floors, Ltd. The company specializes bringing you great flooring products, at great prices, with great service!  They have a design center on the Southwest side of Cedar Rapids, but their biggest asset to their customers is the ability to bring flooring samples directly to your home or project site.

Samantha’s biggest asset to the customer (on a personal level) is her background in interior design. “I have experience in both the residential and commercial sides of design and I have been selling flooring for almost four years. I love helping customers who may be confused about what to do with their floors and help them have the confidence to select the perfect finishes for their floors!”

Samantha travels around the Cedar Rapids and Iowa City Corridor helping clients select the perfect finishes for their home and with the best pricing possibly. Recently she completed along with her company the new floors at the Commonwealth Senior Apartments in Cedar Rapids Historic District.

Samantha shares her story on why she is a member of PWN, “In 2016 I joined PWN because I wanted to have an avenue to meet business women and discuss issues that we have in owning our own businesses. I found the members to be successful in their careers and generous in giving of their time and talent.

In the past year PWN has grown tremendously and the group of ladies have such a diverse set of businesses and backgrounds that each meeting is a chance to meet someone new. PWN is a true demonstration of power in numbers!”
