LETTER FROM THE CHAIR
On behalf of Women for Florida State University, I would like to take this opportunity to say a special thank you to Tena Pate. Over the past two years, Tena's guidance has been remarkable—leading us through the COVID-19 pandemic with vision, impact and grace that has allowed us to continue our work through a virtual lens. I have great respect for her leadership and am honored to be able to walk in her footsteps.
During the pandemic, we learned new ways to communicate and engage our members and potential members. I look forward to empowering the W4FSU Executive Committee to impart an even more significant impact on our communities as we continue to engage both in-person and virtually with new opportunities that will expand our reach and involvement. As we look forward, our team will be focusing on increasing our membership and value, planning for a unique experience at Backstage Pass to the Very Best of Florida State and much more.
Our path forward is an exciting one, and I am thrilled to be a part of the team!
All the best,
Chair, Women for FSU
