President's Message - February 2015
A Birthday Present To Members
This month, WWE celebrates its fourth birthday. Also this month, with help and contributions from many people, WWE launches a monthly eNewsletter. Now you will have one place where you can see what events are coming up, what the various committees are up to (and what needs they have that you might be able to help out with), who the newest WWE members are, what’s happening with GIRLS'BIZ, and more.
The WWE Board has been debating the idea of a newsletter for a long time. But as we listened to members’ suggestions and concerns, we realized that a simple, practical way to get the word out trumped a fancy-format publication. Our wonderful Webmaster, Melodee Patterson, has designed something both simple and lovely, as I hope you will agree.
Speaking of suggestions and concerns, at the Friday breakfast listening session in January, WWE members shared more than 50 ideas, questions and requests. Board Secretary Claire Matejka recorded these and the board will be sifting and considering them at their next meeting. One thing was evident: WWE women are passionate about their organization, even if they don’t always agree. Some people want more advanced education, while others feel education for beginning entrepreneurs is needed. Some say our breakfasts should meet later in the morning, while others say a mid-morning breakfast would interrupt their workday. Some say we have too many events to choose from, while others like the choices and come to the events that fit their schedule. Some say they’d like to be more involved, while others state they are too busy to do more.
Do you see the dilemma? The new WWE is four years old, but we are still exploring and defining who and what we are. We know one thing for sure: we can’t be all things to all women entrepreneurs. But we embrace women at all stages of their development and we are searching for a balance. We try out new ideas (note the new SIG for life coaches and trainers), while our mission stays the same: WWE helps women in business succeed by providing education, networking, inspiration, philanthropy and collaboration. And we all make that happen.
