Welcome to the Petaluma Chapter of Polka Dot Powerhouse!!! We are thrilled you are here and look forward to welcoming you to this community of authentic connection that focuses on up-leveling women both personally and professionally.

Our mission is to connect the worlds most positive, action-forward, amazing women to build lifelong friendships and relationships. It is our Chapter's vision to create a space that encourages community, collaboration, support and laughter in a no-drama environment. 

I have been a member of Polka Dot Powerhouse since 2016 and I love our local chapter as well the benefits of being part of a national organization. I have friends and colleagues throughout the country as a result of Polka Dot; I know when I meet a "Dot", I am meeting a woman that is empowered, authentic, supportive and will accept me for me! 

On behalf of our Leadership team and all members in our Chapter, "Welcome"!! We look forward to sharing Polka Dot with you! We are excited for you to experience the true Powerhouse this community it.

Speaker Information:

If you'd like to be a speaker at one of our meetings or through our chapter Dot University,we encourage you to watch the video below for information on becoming a speaker with the Petaluma Chapter. Currently, our meetings are being held on zoom; speaking opportunities include "5-Minute Dot Spots" at the monthly meeting and/or 30-40 minutes for Dot U. 

Since being a Dot is all about CONNECTIONS, we ask that you attend, at least, one Petaluma Monthly Connect before requesting a speaking opportunity for either our monthly meeting or Dot U. This allows us to get to know each other better.  

We also ask that you have a 1:1 connect with Kim Wilson (Speaker Coordinator), Deanna Shaat (Dot U Coordinator) or Molly Knoderer (Managing Director).   We are looking for dynamic speakers that will help to elevate and inspire our membership to be the best version of themselves!  Here is a video of a Dot U with PDP Regional Director, Mindy VanVleet discussing how to become a speaker in PDP. The video is here: Do you Want to be a Speaker with Polka Dot Powerhouse?
