BPW/WA President’s Message Winter 2022
“Living a Legacy” continues…
Here’s hoping your holidays are bright, festive, and full of family fun! I also sincerely hope that 2022 will be a positive, productive year for us all. Our membership is on the rise but we still have much work to do to attract and retain members.
The COVID pandemic notwithstanding, our Annual Meeting is currently being planned for Mother’s Day weekend in Leavenworth, WA. It will be a one-day meeting, May 7, 2022, but we have reserved several rooms at the Worldmark all weekend for those who may want to bring family or guests to celebrate Mother’s Day on the 8th. The planning committee has already met under the direction of our Chair, Stephanie Connor of Republic. We are searching for a venue for the meeting as Worldmark has no meeting rooms or food availability. We also need a Registration Chair, and would welcome any suggestions you may have to make the meeting memorable and fun. I hope many of you will be adventuresome and join us there. Leavenworth is always amazing!
Our history book, A Historical Journey of BPW/USA and BPW/WA 1916-2021 is finally being republished to reflect our 100 years of existence as an organization dedicated to supporting working women. It should be available in the next few weeks, and has truly been a labor of love by its authors, Margaret Way and Sylvia Valine. Please thank them for their hard work, perseverance and patience.
I wish you all a very Happy New Year! Cheers to 2022!!
Best Personal Wishes,
BPW/WA President 2021-2022
