It is my honor and pleasure to serve as your 59th President of the Great State of California.
My legacy with Women’s Council started as a young woman, traveling with my mother to Women’s Council conferences throughout the State and the Country. I am proud of my legacy and the fact that I am President exactly 40 years after my mother was California President.
Women’s Council has done so much for our lives personally and professionally and we want to give back and share all the good things this organization has to offer. We invite EVERYONE to be a part of our organization. We are looking and striving to be as diverse as our State is, when everyone has a seat at the table the organization is stronger, more inclusive and more productive. In this time of heightened awareness of diversity and inclusion it is our duty and obligation as Realtors and good citizens to reach out and bring those members of our Realtor community into the fold of our organization. We invite you to step into our house and feel the warmth and love that our community has to offer.
I look forward to our journey together. We don’t know what the future holds right now, but we do know that we will continue to bring you, our members and our Strategic Partners, valuable networking, timely events and meetings and we encourage you to participate in as much as you possibly can. Because sometimes the bravest thing you can do is to just “show up.” We encourage you to show up for your network events, governing board meetings and become involved at the State level also. Please interact with your partners and show them the Women’s Council love and support by utilizing their goods and services, because without them we cannot do the work that we do.
I like to use my analogy of the gym membership, you join, pay your dues but never go to the gym or participate in what they have to offer, and then wonder why you are not getting fit or losing weight. It is the same with your Women’s Council membership, you only get what you put into it, and believe me what you get out of your membership far outweighs what you put into it. I challenge you to give it a try, the time investment you make will pay off in many ways and you won’t regret it. Be the best that you can be in all ways, no excuses, just do it!
Best wishes for a successful and fun 2021!
I thank you in advance for the opportunity to serve alongside each of you.
