Since it's #TravelTipTuesday, let's discuss some of your favorite "go to" #TravelTips for Holiday Travel!! What's the best advice you've been given regarding #HolidayTravel?

Let's talk #TravelPrep, #TravelTransportation, #TravelFinance, #TravelDeals, etc!! What are your #TradeSecrets on #travel?

1. Don't fly on a Monday morning
While Mondays are, in general, notoriously bad for making your way through super busy airports, this problem made even worse with the onset of the holidays. Avoid the longer airport lines and increased frustrations by booking your flight on another day.

2. Stay hydrated
While drinking water often gets pushed on the back burner when we're busy or stressed, it's actually one of the easiest ways to keep you feeling in tip-top shape. Keep a refillable water bottle handy.

3. Keep your health up
Have a couple Emergen-C packets ready so that you can get your vitamin C dose whenever you feel physically less than your best. Also make sure to travel with hand sanitizer and other antibacterial tools.

4. Get the best rates
Explore all options.

5. Sign up for travel alerts from your airline
Travel alerts about flight delays or changes can help you avoid frustration at the airport. It's also a good idea to keep an eye out for flash sales or rapidly dropping rates.

6. Do your holiday shopping on the go
Get your holiday shopping done online.

7. Ship your baggage to and from your destination
Use a baggage shipping company such as DUFL, which will store, clean & ship your luggage to your destination--and back home--so you can save time and enjoy your trip

A great Statesman has fallen♥️

The National Association of Negro Business and Professional Women’s Clubs, Inc. (NANBPWC) extends deepest sympathy to the family, friends and colleagues of former Congressman John Conyers, Jr., 44th Dean of the U.S. House of Representatives.

John Conyers, Jr. was a co-founder of the Congressional Black Caucus and represented Michigan in Congress for more than five decades. He leaves a legacy as a fierce champion for civil rights and one who introduced numerous pieces of legislation to improve life for all Americans, including the Voting Rights Act of 1965. He also sponsored the first of many bills to make Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday a federal holiday. Congressman Conyers will be greatly missed. #NANBPWC #MovingForwardWithAPurpose #Since1935

The National Association of Negro Business and Professional Women's Clubs, Inc. "NANBPWC, INC."

Historical Overview

The late Emma Odessa Young, a realtor from New York City and a member of the New York Club of Business and Professional Women, conceived the idea of a national organization of business and professional women in 1934. Unfortunately, Mrs. Young became an invalid and never sought to head the organization. Although an invalid, Mrs. Young’s mind was alert and her interest keen. She was satisfied to witness the progress of the organization before her passing in 1944.

In July of 1935, Mrs. Ollie Chinn Porter, president of the New York Club, extended an invitation to local clubs, organized as Business and Professional Women’s Clubs, to join and form a national organization.

In July of 1935, Mrs. Ollie Chinn Porter, president of the New York Club, extended an invitation to local clubs, organized as Business and Professional Women’s Clubs, to join and form a national organization.

Our History After a year of meetings, the first convention was held in Atlantic City, New Jersey on July 9-11, 1936, at the Asbury Methodist Episcopal Church on Artic Avenue. Elected as the first national president was Mrs. Ollie Chinn Porter. The aim of this newly formed national organization was then, as it is today, to attract women of high caliber to organize similar clubs within their communities. Facing the realities of the times, their daring and inspiring goals were to share their experiences and exchange information; to protect their interest and to encourage and develop opportunities for black women in businesses and professions.

During this time in our history, black people were called “Negroes”. Very few had businesses or professions. Many were still deep in the throes of the depression. The fact that these black women had the courage to found such an optimistic organization is astounding and a lasting testimony to their faith in themselves, our people, and the future.

The Founders were owners, managers, college graduates, and other professionally licensed women, who had managed to realize some measure of personal success, at a time when there was not a national movement to improve the lot of black Americans; where there was no black capitalism program, nor any black studies curricula. Still, these women felt prepared to offer leadership.

Over the years, NANBPWC, Inc. has grown in numbers and scope, conducting many needed community service activities that go far beyond the original purpose. Women have come a long way and so has NANBPWC, Inc
