Women of FPA


The Women of FPA of Colorado have been going strong now for 2 years! We sipped and painted, we cooked, and we got crafty at our holiday party, mingled at other gatherings in 2017 and developed some great relationships with our peers.

2018 is shaping up to be even better, with more fun, more opportunities for networking, more sharing of ideas, and more laughter. Our community of like-minded professional women keeps growing and thriving. We hope you can join us on this journey and experience the support and friendship found within the Women of FPA of Colorado.

Don't miss out on communication about upcoming events. Please add to your e-mail address book and join the group (Women of FPA of Colorado) on LinkedIn.
