Event Navigation



Networking Norms (to maintain mutual respect and a positive spirit)
– AAWIP is here to serve you in a way that you are most comfortable which means boundaries must be respected as well. We’re a supportive group and while it is common to connect one-on-one for tea, coffee, or lunch outside of our meetings, boundaries and people as individuals should be respected; if an AAWIP member isn’t ready to meet, is not the “let’s meet” type, needs an empath breather… this should be respected by all AAWIP members.

– Bonus offers are great, but all AAWIP members should create fee (0 to …) boundaries. This is a wholistic and integrative group supporting its professionals. Creating fee boundaries will create sound professional relationships. Money is easiest and should be clear up-front (which includes no hidden fees), other exchanges should be clear and equal (all parties should feel fairly compensated), expectations for donation-based or no cost should be clear (fee-less is a fee), gifts are appreciated, but should not be expected.

What to expect when registering for a meeting
Please accurately e-register your attendance intention by Sunday (prior to our meeting) so that we have a seat waiting for you (this includes members bringing guests). The RSVP list will be printed by six the Sunday before our meeting, but you can still register online (I just won’t have your name on my print out).

If you don’t know how to change your attendance status, see instructions at

See the explanation on why “no show” status is recorded at
