WEO President's Letter: September 2017
It has been my privilege and honor to serve as your president.
As my term as president comes to a close, I am grateful and proud of all we have accomplished over the last two years.
Grateful for the support of the excellent Board and Committees, and proud of the teamwork that kept WEO running.
We faced several challenges in the past two years, including rising costs without new revenues streams to offset those costs, stunted membership because of the relatively short enrollment window, and an aging website, to name a few.
Here's a short list of how we met and overcame these challenges, plus some of our key accomplishments:
And so much more!
None of this would have been possible without the support, encouragement and efforts of WEO members, many of whom will be recognized, thanked and honored at this month's meeting.
Looking ahead, I see great things for WEO. Our incoming board is experienced, eager, and capable, and will lead us to even greater heights that we've reached so far.
While my term as president is over, my commitment to WEO is not. I invite you to get involved with WEO in any way you can, be it volunteering once a year for a WE Care effort, serving on a committee, or simply lending a hand at the meetings. We need you, and welcome your participation.
The rewards far exceed the effort, I assure you. Between the friendships, business connections, enhanced visibility in the community, and the new skills you will learn, your service to WEO will pay off for years to come.
Thank you for supporting women in business. Because of you, #WEORocks!
WEO President, October 2017-September 2017
