Thanks to everyone who attended and sponsored our Annual Spring Gala and Scholarship Awards Night this past Tuesday April 25, 2017.
The event began with networking over wine and hor d'oeuvres, an announcement of the elected slate of the officers and directors for our 2017-2018 board, a shout-out to our gala sponsors, including a special presentation from Edward Jones financial advisors Shane Jacksteit and Linh Thai.
We presented and congratulated our scholarship winners with their awards. We had a wonderful speaker, Erin McConlogue from Dale Carnegie Training San Francisco, end the night with her presentation "Building Rapport and Communications Tactics." What a jam-packed, yet another successful event!
As a former scholarship recipient of AFWA SIlicon Valley myself, it is dear to my heart to witness and to be a part of awarding scholarships every year. On my personal Facebook newsfeed I was reminded of my scholarship award when a picture I took showed up on my timeline - from 2011! That's a picture of my scholarship certificate above!
Next month's meeting will be another eventful meeting, because we will also have our board installation of the elected 2017-2018 directors and officers. Watch for the event invite for more details. See you there!
