We started off our 2021 programming with robust attendance at our January event! Thank you to everyone who was able to attend. We received excellent feedback about Janina Fisher’s presentation, and we plan on continuing to offer high quality programming throughout the year.
I’d also like to thank our Hospitality Chair, Olivia Stadler, for hosting our New Member Welcome in February. It was great to meet our new members and help them become integrated into our community. It means a lot to hear that people experience our community as warm, welcoming and supportive. If you were not able to attend our social gathering in February, keep your eyes open for future virtual social events to come... we want to make sure that there are continued opportunities for connection with each other.
Next, I’d like to introduce our 2 newest board members. Raceal McWhorter recently moved to the area, and she has taken on our Continuing Education Chair position. Moving forward, she will handle all of the details involved in ensuring we are able to offer CEs at our educational events. Sarah Lauterbach has joined the board as a Member-at-Large, which means she will take on tasks that do not fit one specific position. Sarah will offer support in several areas, which is very helpful to ensure that all of the tasks of the board are covered. Thank you Raceal and Sarah!
Lastly, the roster of speaker events for 2021 is still being created. If you are interested in presenting a virtual salon, please reach out! I know that we have a lot of expertise in our community, and I want to make sure our Chapter members have as much access as possible to that expertise.
May You Be Well,
