President`s Message
  Dear APIW Members, Welcome to our 41 new members! Our new membership process is live and we are growing. We have already had a busy year with the January sellout at the Yale Club with Richie Whitt, CEO of Markel and the March Annual APIW/NYC AIW Women’s Leadership Forum sellout with Liz Bentley, “Stepping Into Your Power – Making a Difference in 2019”. At the March Leadership Forum we asked the attendees to bring gift cards to assist with Women In Need. Giving Back remains at the core of the APIW’s values. We appreciated Business Insurance reaching out with a gratis table for the March 21, 2019 US Insurance Awards in NYC
