The Executive Board meets at 7:00 PM the First Monday of every month, at the Hampton Presbyterian Church. Chapter meetings typically include
activities such as:

      Guest Speaker – who makes a presentation on a career related topic. Recent topics have included Mid-career Retooling, Job Search
       Organizing, Time Management, and Listening Skills. Our speakers are experts in their fields, and many are widely-recognized lecturers,
       consultants, and authors. Hearing them provides an education that is not available anywhere else at any price.
      Networking – in a focus group with other PAPEN members. This includes practicing the personal presentation known as the "two minute
       drill"; where members describe themselves, their professional accomplishments, and the kind of work they are seeking. The drill is part of
       your personal advertising campaign, and is a presentation typically made in a networking interview. A good one will succeed in creating
       specific images in the mind of listeners, which will increase their interest in helping you with your job search. When you practice your drill at
       a meeting, other members can critique it and offer constructive advice.
      Review of Job Leads – received recently from local employers or recruiters. There is also time for discussing information in the PAPEN
       bulletins. Each bulletin is loaded with excellent information such as networking tips, job search tips, upcoming chapter schedules, member
       success stories, and contacts within the organization as well as in related organizations.
