FROM THE DESK OF THE PRESIDENT
Summer is here and while most of our clubs and districts remain in flux between getting ready to open the clubhouses and meetings and hybrid combos of both, this is also the time of year many of us are “dark”. Being in the “dark” does not mean we stop working, quite the contrary, for there is so much to plan and do to run smoothly come Fall.
This summer we are offering a series of Workshops and Virtual Training with the CFWC Summertime Back to Basics Series! We plan on bringing forth several levels on the how a position is done and offer different points of views from members that are in the positions now and what they have found to work. These members will also share how they do their job and answer your queries on how they make it all work.
There are fliers on their way and once again, Lynne Youngstrom will be heading up the reservations for all 15 of these 2-hour presentations. I shall be giving you a quick rundown below with dates and titles, all will be offered via Zoom. Fliers are on their way so look for those too.
Send reservation inquiries to: email@example.com
I hope that many of you will join us for the sessions, working hard to provide you with training is a pleasure for those of us planning these and we want to make sure as many of you as possible can join in the fun! These are open for all our Federation members.
