Greetings from The President

      

Arnetta Meekins'
June 2019
President's Message

When I think of June, I naturally think about Summer and all that comes with the season… longer days, maybe more drinks with umbrellas, Beaches and Vacations, just to name a few. Then I wondered about the significance of June AND women.  I dug around to find a few facts:

- June 1, 1993 – Connie Chung becomes the second woman to co-anchor the evening news (Barbara Walters was first)

- June 10, 1963 – Equal Pay (for women) Act enacted

- For sports fans, June 21, 1997 – The Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) plays its first game.

Being around such powerful and talented women in PWEG, I’m convinced that we too can affect history. I leave you with this thought… Whether amongst your families, locally, or globally, strive to be intentional with the mark you leave on the World. What impact could you make THIS JUNE that establishes your legacy?

                                 Thank You's
As we discussed at January's Members Only meeting, in addition to allowing time periodically throughout the year for formal 'thank you's' to our members, the com-munications team will also offer a monthly opportunity for you to share your Thank You's so they will be received timely.  This will be done for members only and a reminder will be sent with the monthly e-mail to notify of the meetings; and then your Thank You's will be included in the 'reminder'e-mail for that month's meetings as a link.  Please send your Thank You's to Brenda Bowers and Marilyn Drane for this purpose.

MEMBER BUSINESS CARDS 
If you are interested in having your business card published here each month for all who access the website to view, please send a copy of your business card to the Com-munications Team - Brenda Bowers and Marilyn Drane.  Your card will be published on a first-come, first-serve basis for the remainder of the year.  The cost is $100 and needs to be paid (not eligible to be paid on the website) to Emily Forsythe, our Treasurer.
