From the desk of Ronnie Noize, WEO President

February 1, 2017

As the new year begins, I look back in gratitude and count my blessings. Here's my list of blessings from WEO in 2016:

  • Inspiring and educational speakers
  • Deepening of enduring friendships
  • Delightful beginnings of new friendships
  • The evolution of committee members into leaders
  • Gratitude for the efforts and support of WEO leaders, both past and present
  • Appreciation for all the WEOs who have contributed their ideas, service, and unique perspectives to our community

Looking ahead, I am excited and grateful for our wonderful new plans. Here's what I look forward to from WEO in 2017:

  • Getting to know more members
  • Great content and connection at meetings
  • Excitement and optimism about WEO's new membership model
  • WEO's new initiative to subsidize tickets to non-WEO events

So about this last thing, you're going to learn more details at the January meeting, but briefly, here's what's happening:

Our Pot O'Gold riches (usually around $100/month) will be dedicated to both philanthropy and WEO outreach in 2017.

The WE Care Committee will announce quarterly recipients of WEO's cash donations and philanthropic programs. Terri Klinski will present an update with more specifics at the January meeting.

For the WEO outreach, our Board Member at Large Meredith McKell Graff will be organizing groups of WEOs to attend women's events. 

We've purchased tickets to the Inspiring Women Leaders conference and the Women's Festival NW (both events are in March), and will be offering them to WEO members at a 50% discount. Meredith will tell you all about it at the January meeting.

We're excited to support these worthy events, and in lieu of a sponsorship, are subsidizing tickets for members so that we can share the benefits of participation. 

Just think how fun it will be to attend more fun events with your WEO sisters!

Thank you for supporting women in business--we're here for YOU! #WEORocks!
