President's Pipeline

October is an exciting time in our chapter where we have many new ventures beginning or being renewed. This is the beginning of our fiscal year when renewals are happening (thank you to everyone who has already renewed!), we are kicking off new committee objectives, and we have our new board setup and ready to go. We are having a big push this month to get everyone signed up for a committee or engaged with a committee. We have a great group of talented and diverse viewpoints that we want to use. Please consider joining one of these committees. If you are not sure which one would fit you, please contact me, Tiffany, or any board member and we can help you find one that fit's your drive and talents.

In September, we had our installation dinner where we got the chance to get dressed up and celebrate everything we have accomplished over the year. We were also able to give out awards to some amazing women. Congratulations to all, you are amazing!

All Habitat for Humanity sponsors also received a plaque for their donations for our civic event this year. 

We had a great 2020-2021 year and I am looking forward to seeing everything our chapter can do in the next year. Here is a brief overview of what we are planning for the next few months (dates are set but topics subject to change)

  • October 14- Committeepalooza- learn about NAWIC, committees, and how you can help out
  • October 20- CFMA & NAWIC Networking Mixer
  • November 11th - Safety committee is leading 
  • TBD November Networking Social Event
  • December 9th- Business Etiquette and Customs
  • TBD December holiday party

Hopefully this gives you enough time to plan. As a reminder, our membership meetings are always on the second Thursday of the month. We are trying to do a second unofficial meeting that is more of a social meeting every month as well to engage those who are not able to attend a lunch meeting.

This month's committee spotlight is the Nominating Committee. The goal of this group is to contact and vet members who could be interested in serving on the chapter's board of directors. Throughout the year this committee looks for members who meet the qualifications and have qualities that will represent the diverse group of women we have in our membership. The nominating committee, while always looking for potential board members, start meeting around January/ February. In March contacts start being made and reviewed, and the full panel is pulled together at the end of April. In May ballots are sent out and results are announced at the June meeting. If you are someone who is a 'people watcher' this would be a great committee for you. We need people who can recognized leadership, diverse opinions, and passion in everyone. This committee also is typically only busy for a few months so you could easily serve on another committee and this one without any conflict.
