President’s Pen – Thank You!

September is upon us and for me who has two kids, it is back to school and back to a routine. For the WBN, September is transition time. We will have the usual passing of the torch to the new President and Board at the AGM on September 15. If you haven’t bought your ticket to the AGM, click here and register now to meet Karen Wilson, the incoming President, Lise Patry, the incoming Vice-President and the other new members of the Board.

At the AGM, from 4:30 pm to 5:00 pm, you will have an opportunity to ask the Executive questions about the financial statements for the period of June 2014 to May 2015. As a Board, we are very proud of our hard work and the achievements that we have accomplished through-out the year. Come help us celebrate and ask any questions you may have.

I have enjoyed my role of President. It has been a pleasure to work with the members of the Board, the Executive and our Executive Director. Over the past year, we saw over 200 women join our membership and focused on strengthening the lines of communication amongst the various committees. Moving forward, the WBN will be in great hands under Karen. It has been a pleasure to work with her this year and Karen will pull me kicking and screaming into the social media world. I wish her every success in the upcoming year.

Dare to be great because “connections are why we are here. We are hardwired to connect with others. It is what gives purpose and meaning to our lives and without it, we cannot dare to be great.
