A Message from the President

 

I’ve been thinking quite a lot about what I wanted to say in my last letter as your President. Did I want to get all mushy and tell you how much this year has meant to me? Did I want to be methodical and list all that we’ve accomplished as a group? Or, did I just want to speak from my heart?

In the end, I decided to choose all three….

We’ve accomplished a great deal this year. We’ve updated our bylaws and are working toward automating most of what we do to help us run more smoothly, all without losing the warmth and closeness that we have. There have been parties, outings, increased involvement in our Special Interest Groups and a steady growth in our membership. We must be doing something right.

When I took on this role, I never realized how truly committed to excellence we are. The women who assume roles or responsibility, whether it be on your Executive Committee or as a chair, coordinator or committee member strive to give their best so that we as members can proudly say that we have a phenomenal organization. We are warm, caring and fun-loving. People think that I’m a broken record when I tell them that we, the members of the Welcome Club of Sarasota/Manatee, are a force to be reckoned with.

I have been a lucky woman to have the support that I’ve had. The members of the Executive Committee and Board have been there to help whenever I’ve called. They are problem solvers, idea gurus and creative geniuses. We have a wealth of talent in our club and this membership is never afraid to share that talent with us.

Most of all, though, I want to thank you, the members. You could choose to be a member of any organization in our community and you chose us. Your enthusiasm is contagious. I love seeing you interact with each other – just like a proud Mom.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to have this year.
