A Note from Our Chairperson
GAWN Chairperson 2016-2017
I’m very excited to be GAWN's 2016-2017 Chair! We have great educational and networking luncheons scheduled as well as fun socials and engaging workshops in our plan. We're undertaking some major projects this year, including revamping our entire website to make it more user-friendly and intuitive. We’re also introducing monthly newsletters and a members-only Facebook group to connect our members to each other even more.
My job as Chair is not only to ensure the overall health of the organization, but to make GAWN a friendly and welcoming place for our members to create and nurture relationships as well as hone their networking abilities. To that end, I hope you will share your feedback with me. What are we doing right? How can we improve? Please talk to me or any of the other board members about your ideas and suggestions.
Together we can make this an organization that serves you and your needs, both now and for years to come.
