Letter from the President


Greetings, where there is no vision, the people perish!

This country has seen a significant change in its leadership and we all are awaiting the results; but while we wait, we must not become distracted and lose focus on what our vision is.


This year's theme is "Navigating the Waters", exactly what does that mean? glad you asked.  As women, we are faced with many challenges in the workplace, our community; and even our homes that we must "navigate" through in order to have success.  Equal pay, leadership roles, work-life balance, career opportunities, affordable child care and employable soft skills, are just a few of the navigational courses women must channel through in order to succeed in the home, workplace and the community.


I hope we will continue to be the role models and mentors that this generation and future generations remember as the one who "Navigated the Waters".


Be persistent, be focused and "Navigate the Waters".
