President's Corner

Michelle Kilby
2016 President
Dear Members,

You might have noticed a theme in this week's edition of The Link. It's all about celebrating YOU - your accomplishments, your business, and your support of women who are already CREW members and those who will be in the future.

I recently joined an illustrious group of women for dinner at the 2016 Past President's Dinner.  Fittingly enough, we held it at Lincoln.  After all, there is no better place to celebrate Presidential accomplishments than in the home of one!

What an amazing evening spent with these women who have given so much to our Chapter and to learn how very far we've come in our nearly 40 years!  And what a great way to remember all that we do - I wish all of our volunteers could have heard the compliments and supportive words from our past leaders.

Next week, we will have the pleasure of hosting the former President of CREW Network,
Lori Kilberg, as she joins us for our 2nd Annual Women on the Move luncheon program.  Again, events where we feature CREW members are the most popular, and this one is SOLD OUT!

In the coming months, there are so many ways to get noticed, raise your profile, and build your success - I hope you take advantage of all of them.
