Question on writing resumes

Is it considered "over the top" when you put a professional logo at the top of your resume?

I'm a member of NAPW (National Association of Professional Women) and am proud of that, but would prospective employers be put off by that?

Thanks!

Would maybe depend on the business involved; my first instinct was that I wouldn't do it [well, okay, I'm not a woman, but you know what I mean]. That information would normally be contained in the body of the resume and it could, as you note, be an immediate turn-off for some people which could result in the resume not even being read.
