Q: When will I receive my membership kit?
A: As soon as you become a new member - and every time you renew - you will receive a Membership Kit. The kit includes your membership card, information on member benefits, and an opportunity to complete or update your member profile. Kits are sent via first-class mail. Expect to receive yours within two to three weeks of placing your order.
Q: Can I cancel my membership?
A: Your annual membership fee is fully refundable if you cancel within one month of your payment date. If you cancel after that date, NAFE will refund a prorated portion of your fees.
Q: Can Executive Assistants join? Can a non-business owner join? I want to start a business, can I join?
A: We welcome members from all industries and across all job titles.
Q: What mentoring opportunities do you provide?
A: To investigate local mentoring opportunities, contact your local director or regional coordinator. Other mentoring resources include the U.S. Small Business Administration Women in Business website and Women Unlimited website.
Q: Can I submit an article for the newsletter?
A: NAFE considers submissions from active NAFE members for publication in our bi-weekly e-newsletter. If you would like to submit an event for consideration in the NAFE /WIN newsletter, please send your article to the Newsletter Editor.
Q: How do I become a speaker at an event?
A: NAFE typically invites women who are authors and/or have high level corporate business experience to speak at our breakfasts and as keynotes at our conferences. We often invite successful entrepreneurs with proven track records of presenting to groups to give workshop presentations at our conference.
If you would like to submit a speaker for consideration, please email the President
Our speakers are chosen by a committee of NAFE staff and sometimes our sponsor.
