Pensacola Pen Women gather at the celebration of their branch’s 75th anniversary.

NLAPW’s Pensacola Branch marked its 75th anniversary this year with a host of events, including a gala event with the theme “Painted Sounds,” inspired by the Atlanta Branch collaborative with the same name. This Florida branch had quite a year: At the recent Biennial national event, it was recognized for its highest membership growth during 2016-2018 — 73 percent growth. Way to go, Pensacola Pen Women!

Read about the Pensacola Branch anniversary celebration in branch news, and learn about the branch’s secrets to success in a special feature article published in The Pen Woman magazine.
