Successful Women Aligning Together Newsletter 


News From Our CEO, Dr. Robyn 

This is an exciting time. We had seven chapters that celebrated SWAT's birthday. 8 years of providing an amazing service to the SW Florida area. It's so rewarding to be part of such an amazing group of women. 

SWAT sisters are here for you. Just reach out and let us know that you need some extra support. That is what makes us special, we are a sisterhood.  If you need a referral or recommendation, if you need prays or a hug, if you need support, we are here for you. If you need more business, try promoting on our private FB group and make sure you schedule a sit-down with ME!

SWAT is a unique organization! and new for 2018, bring in a new member...For each new member that you bring in, $10 will come off your next year membership dues! 5 new members who put your name down and you get $50 off your membership dues for the following renewal period! Bring a friend to SWAT!

And a new perk of membership!! We now have a "Featured SWAT Member" on the home page of the SWAT Networking website. If you do not have a photo on your profile and you are selected as the featured member, it will not show your photo. Please go to www.swatnetworking.com, log in and then update your profile.
