Welcome to the Milwaukee Polka Dot Powerhouse Chapter! 


What you can expect at a Polka Dot Powerhouse connect:

Our chapter is part of a growing international organization unlike others you may have encountered.  In Polka Dot, women business owners; corporate, government, and direct selling professionals; and women in transition discover a supportive and collaborative atmosphere.  This environment will enable you to grow yourself professionally and personally.

At our monthly lunch meetings, you'll meet like-minded women who establish long-term referral partnerships and alliances in addition to new clients.  When you're a member, you'll find our upbeat environment lets you cultivate the best qualities of yourself while facilitating the same in others.  Dots, as we often refer to our members, love to be authentic and tap into the best traits of womanhood.

Typical Outline of Our Luncheon / Evening Meetings

-Introductions: We want to know about you, what lights you up, and the work or business you represent and are proud to share with the collective.

-Celebrations: We all have something to celebrate big or small, personally or professionally. As women do not celebrate ourselves enough! Come ready to share all wins with us.

-Collaborations & Connection: This is your time to share who you have done business with & what special connections you have been made both personally and professionally. First and foremost, we are a women’s connection company. We stand by this; business is a byproduct of the relationships you build here.

-New Products & Services: What are you working on? What are you so excited to share with the group? 

-Speaker: Each month we have a different speaker who shares professional & self-development topics. If you are interested in becoming a guest speaker, please reach out to a member of our leadership team for information.

Polka Dot Powerhouse has a substantial, vigorous online presence through Facebook.  You'll meet women in our chapter and across the world.  With Facebook, you'll expand your community of companionable ladies who love to laugh, seek advice, uplift, and challenge you to be the best woman you can be.

Once a year, you'll have the opportunity to meet many of our Dots at our national Celebration -- a two-day conference featuring educational seminars, keynote speakers, and loads of spontaneous get-togethers.  You'll walk away with a whole new group of sisters and cheerleaders supporting your journey at every step.
