BPW/WA President’s Message Spring 2021
“Living a Legacy” continues…
What are the lessons we have learned to date during this global pandemic? Speaking personally, chief among them is to pack my patience every day, that good things do come to those who wait, and that reality is a challenge to be met with positivity, if not enthusiasm. There is always hope for a better future.
Sadly, many people are better at division than vision, criticism, not action. As BPW/WA ambassadors and volunteers, we need to ask ourselves hard questions, e.g. who and what are we trying to be and do? And do we sincerely want to tackle the hard work that it will take to move this organization forward?
Our leadership team does work hard, and they are truly talented and dedicated women. If you would like to join us, we are still searching for a Recording Secretary for the 2021-22 term. Please contact Jacqueline Petrick-Lee, Nominations Chair, at email@example.com more information.
I am happy to report that we are making progress, albeit slowly given this pandemic age. We are mastering Zoom technology, have purchased a Square in order for the state treasurer to more efficiently handle credit card transactions, and are in the planning stages of an amazing virtual Annual Meeting on Saturday, May 22nd. Our guest speaker will be Arden Clise, a nationally recognized author and CEO of Clise Etiquette. We will elect and install our new officers, review the budget, and welcome fiscal year 2021-22. We are going to have a lot of FUN during the day, and hope many of you will be able to attend via Zoom to cheer on the next 100 years. See you then!
Best Personal Wishes,
