Our monthly event offerings include a more formal luncheon at the top of the month and a mid-month casual breakfast meet up. Both events provide ample networking and educational opportunities, with top-level speakers brought in from major corporations, along with our very own BCPWN members serving as presenters. We're delighted to also offer complimentary private events to our membership along with special event sip and shops, happy hours and health and wellness outings at local establishments.

    BCPWN December Friday Luncheon:

    Elizabeth Johnson, Owner &
    Care Planning Consultant for Senior Care Talks Challenges and Triumphs in Business

    Friday, December 9, 2022

    12n - 2pm     

    Join us at Allendale Bar & Grill in The Connelly Room for a plated lunch, cash bar, networking and presentation by Elizabeth Johnson, CEO/President of Always Best Care of Bergen & Passaic County.

    Liz is a BCPWN Member and active participant in our association. At the December lunch, she will discuss challenges she's faced in her career that have led her to thrive as the owner of her own business.

    This is the last lunch of 2022! Bring a friend or colleague and make merry with BCPWN!

    About the Presenter: Liz Johnson is the owner and principal care planning consultant for Always Best Care of Bergen & Passaic County.  She has a business degree in marketing from Fordham University in New York and more than 20 years of health care and patient/caregiver advocacy experience. Liz has a strong desire to help people who are concerned about quality of care for their elderly loved ones. As a hands-on manager, she is focused on ensuring that those under our care get the best possible care while remaining in their own home. Typically, she works with adult children and relatives of aging parents who need to determine the best path forward as their parents’ needs change. Liz meets with each family individually to learn about their elderly parent, the family and their needs.

    She has the experience of advocating for close family members as they dealt with health challenges associated with chronic illness and aging. Liz experienced the frustrations of interacting with the healthcare system. Her overarching concern was to make sure that her loved ones were treated with dignity and respect. She benefited from the extensive experience in working with healthcare professionals on a peer-to-peer basis rather than a doctor-patient basis. This made a difference for her family members and she developed a passion for ensuring that other people in her situation could have access to the same degree of advocacy and support. Liz wanted them that to know their love ones were cared for with dignity and respect.


    This event is limited to 25 attendees. We will open a waiting list as well.

    Cancellations can be accepted in writing up to 48 business hours prior to the event. No refunds will be issued after that point.

    BCPWN Monthly Pods 2023 -- Session 1

    -Complimentary for Members-

    The BCPWN PODS Program launched in January of 2021 with 20 members participating.  It was a fresh approach to forging deeper connections within the BCPWN community that stemmed from a member suggestion.

    As a result of the positive feedback and success of PODS Sessions 1 and 2, our hope was realized -- that participants will utilize their time together to network with one another, share resources, provide support, and even socialize -- and we're delighted for the return of PODS for our BCPWN members as an exclusive benefit.

    The Pods Program is optional, and is meant to compliment regular BCPWN programming which will continue throughout 2023.  Join us for a kick off Zoom on December 19th at 10am and find out who your pod will be when we break every out into breakout rooms for the big reveal!

    Here's how it works:

    • If you'd like to participate in a pod, register via this event page, by December 16th.

    • Session 1 will run January - June 2023.

    • The PODS program is complimentary to BCPWN Members in good standing. Be sure your membership is up to date or join officially here.

    • PODS will vary in size based upon collective interest.  They will be assigned by BCPWN staff based off of preferences that you select.  We will send all registrants a link to a Google Form which will provide options and goals for your PODS experience. Based upon those selections, we will match you up accordingly to fellow PODS members.

    • Pods will kick off with a collective Zoom for all on December 19th at 10am, at which point they will be join breakout rooms to meet their Pod. From that point forward, Pod members will take it upon themselves to decide how/when to meet (i.e. via zoom, socially distanced in-person, via conference call) each month. We've heard that some PODS met each month at a different restaurant for lunch, while others did a monthly 8am phone call, and others met to walk once a month.  The possibilities are endless! Full details will be explained on the introductory Zoom.

    • BCPWN will provide Pods with suggested monthly themes and topics to explore. These will vary from physical experiences (i.e. ways to get moving together) to Mastermind topics.

    • BCPWN will periodically check in with Pod members over the 6-month period to see how things are going. It is strongly encouraged that you only join PODS if you can make the commitment to meet up/engage monthly -- it is only fair this way to all involved.
