Expect the Unexpected on 2/17/2018
Come to network and enjoy refreshments from 10 – 10:30 a.m (bring something breakfasty to share). Then from 10:30 to noon, participate in a brainstorming session led by Ginger Robinson, 1st VP in charge of programs. Share your ideas that will help DWC Collier to increase our visibility in the community and define actions for our club during this important election year.
*Tasha regrets that she will not be able to join us for the February meeting due to an important prior commitment. In her place, Ginger Robinson will lead the meeting.
Well it’s been one hell of a year, and not in a good way. In January 2017 you all showed up en masse to the DWC meeting ready to do do battle, (I know, I was there), but here we are one year later having to call up and beg people to attend the January 2018 meeting so we could have enough people for a quorum in order to elect new officers. We made it and here I am your new 1st Vice President in charge of Programs.
So what happened between January 2017 and January 2018 to cause our membership to dwindle? We don’t know. To that end, for our February 17th meeting, the new board of officers wanted to try something unusual… We decided to have an unstructured meeting dedicated to listening to what our members have to say. We would like to use the entire time to Brainstorm about how the DWC can be more vibrant, vital and visible in the community along with ideas on what our club should be doing this important election year.
Your presence is respectfully requested and most definitely required if the DWC is to go forward to provide support for our candidates and continuing voter outreach and education.
The meeting is Saturday, February 17th 10 a.m. to noon. Please bring a friend, something breakfast-y to share and your thinking caps. We will provide the coffee, tea and water.
Thank you for your kind attention,
Ginger Robinson, 1st Vice President, DWCCC
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
