Join us for our annual Public Relations (PR) & Scholarship Award Dinner. If you can only attend one event this year, this is the one!

Our event will be at Harbor House located in Seaport Village. James Dahlberg, General Manager has assured me that they are able to provide a safe environment for us to hold our annual event. Harbor House will allow us to use the larger room and will be setting up large tables and will only seat 4 to a table to keep social distancing and will have the tables at 6 feet intervals. Mask will be required until you have been seated at your table and will be required if you move about. You can also request to be seated with certain people. Harbor House will let me know if there are any changes due to the Covid-19 and I’ll pass this along to all of those who plan on attending as we get closer to our July 16th date.


This year we are honored to have Barbara Gunning who will speaking on Introvert or Extrovert? Learn the differences between Introverts and Extroverts and why it is important for your team.

At this event will be hosting our Scholarship Winners so you will get the opportunity to meet them and learn how much you’ve helped each of them just by purchasing Scholarship tickets each month.

As our current AFWA San Diego Chapter’s Current Board of Officers & Directors step down please take the time to say thank you to each of them for their hard work and dedication for the past year in helping to bringing you all of the wonderful events, speakers, and donations for the scholarship fund.

We will install the new AFWA San Diego Chapter’s Board of Officers & Directors for the July 2020 – June 2021 term.

Guest Speaker

Introvert or Extrovert?

Who’s happier? More successful? Valued more?

According to Susan Cain, best-selling author, the innate preference between introvert and extrovert is as important in defining your personality as gender or race. Since the population is equally split between Extroverts and Introverts, there is a good chance that you’re interacting with your polar opposite every day. Knowing how to bring out the best in others is a critical component of leading a high-performing team. Learn the differences between Introverts and Extroverts and why it is important for your team.
