Welcome back!!! I hope you had a magnificent Summer. Fall signals a time of excitement for me. College football kicks off, the kids are back at school, Vogue comes out with its Fall Fashion issue... There's just such a wonderful energy this time of year. In fact, ENERGY is the word I would use to sum up my feelings looking ahead.
As the WCC enters the Fall season, we are energized and ready to finish the year strong. It is with this goal in mind that we have prepared our strategy for the remainder of the year and beyond. We have so many wonderful programs planned! Our programs for September and October will focus on branding, relationship building and shaping people's perceptions. Our speaker line-up is fantastic and I have no doubt attendees will gain a lot of useful information.
Our board recently held its annual retreat to begin building our agenda for 2013. Nordis Alvarez, our President Elect, did an excellent job laying out her goals for next year and what she hopes to accomplish. I am very excited to see her plans come to fruition. We have begun planning our 29th Annual Thelma Gibson Awards Luncheon and Officer Installation Ceremony. This event means so much to us. Every year we get the opportunity to honor our founder, Thelma Gibson, as well as celebrate another year of growth for the WCC. We encourage members who want to get more involved in the organization to volunteer their talents in helping to plan this event. It is a wonderful way to meet new people and get more from your WCC membership.
So put on your favorite team jersey, buy your children's school supplies, brew a hot cup of coffee and peruse the fabulous fashions of Fall… Enjoy the energy of the season! We look forward to reconnecting with you!
