President's Message August 2014
August is a busy month for WWE. The new board will have a leadership retreat next week, and the annual meeting and dinner (members only, no charge) is coming up on Tuesday, August 26. In addition to our regular Friday breakfasts, brown bag lunch, and SIG meetings, we have a Fifth Friday Workshop on August 29.
Our Fifth Friday Workshop presenter, Connie Kilmark, is a dynamic and entertaining financial counselor and consultant. A well-known and long-time resident of Madison, she’s called the “Dr. Ruth of money.” Connie will talk about factors that contribute to your financial personality and what you can do about it. I’ve attended Connie’s talks and, trust me; you do not want to miss this members-only workshop!
Let me say a few words about my view of WWE, and one of my hopes for this year. I believe two characteristics make WWE unique among organizations for women in Madison. First, we are a very warm and welcoming organization. Many people feel they are among friends from the first meeting they attend. Great and lasting friendships are formed. Second, WWE members are entrepreneurs or entrepreneurial in spirit. They are highly motivated, opinionated, strong-willed and, in many cases, confident and fearless.
Our WWE Board is outstanding. Every member is dedicated and hard working. Our committee members serve with just as much dedication, but with less recognition; they do a great deal of the heavy lifting.
WWE has a lot going on. Continuing to offer all of these opportunities will require one of two things: a few people doing a lot of work, or a lot of people each doing a little bit to help out.
You may feel you cannot commit to joining a committee, but do you have time to help in one small way, on one occasion? Please think about what you have to offer. I would like to see every WWE member this year contribute time, resources, or money to the organization. You’ll be hearing more about how you can comfortably contribute. In the meantime, think about what WWE means to you. There is no WWE without you.
