A Message from the President
In 2017 our Board of Directors will develop and present you with valuable opportunities to develop your leadership skills, grow your network, connect with mentors, and gain industry knowledge through our many events and education programs! It is my personal goal to understand the needs of our membership and provide the value, accessibility, and connection to our leadership groups and events that are important to your career.
We have a few new programs this year:
· Connect – Board of Directors and members connect, learn, and grow together.
· Membership News – This is a restart of our quarterly newsletter with a focus on our membership.
· Scholarship – We have added a few opportunities for our members to apply for 2-3 day leadership seminars.
· Volunteer Opportunities – Community Outreach, Student Outreach, and Women’s support groups.
