WEST ORANGE, NJ -  The Exchange Movement will launch its newest chapter in West Orange on Wednesday, Aug. 14 at WOPAS, 271 Main Street from 3 – 6 PM.  The Exchange Movement is a national organization where professional women come together to learn, connect, collaborate, innovate and grow. 

The goal of The Exchange Movement is to shake up the status quo and get real results in a joyous atmosphere. “There is this really cool, special oxygen that happens when extraordinary business women get together,” said Exchange founder Maureen Berkner Boyt.

The Exchange Movement is not a networking group, but a professional organization for women that provide strategy, opportunity and insight to its members through a local monthly meeting and a national members-only online community.

“I am extraordinarily busy and all the successful business women that I hang out with are extraordinarily busy,” stated Boyt. This is why the meetings are fun, but also efficient. “One of the best compliments we’ve gotten from one of our members was ‘there’s not a wasted minute.’ And that’s exactly what we want to deliver. A high quality, high impact, really dynamic experience,” said Boyt.

Each meeting consists of four parts, with the first fifteen minutes spent learning from a nationally recognized business leader. The second part involves time management and planning. Members set clear priorities for the month so that they can focus on what really drives results. The third section is the opportunity to receive feedback on your business challenges from the other members, much like a board of advisors. Lastly, members have a chance to connect over a cocktail during the happy hour portion of the meeting. 

“The Exchange is about authenticity. It’s a place where women with moxie can come together and thrive.  I am thrilled to move this from NYC and into New Jersey since I relocated to West Orange recently and this will enrich all the others that are in this as well,” Naftaly stated.

Maritza Brown, proprietor of WOPAS jumped into sponsoring this launch as a true entrepreneur focused on assisting others  be their best at managing their finances, by improving their financial literacy and planning for the future if blessed with it.  Brown says “"I am committed to helping businesses grow effectively by offering a space for individuals to gather, present and showcase their products, service and people.  I am connected to this mission of empowerment and achievement.”
