With a new year comes new opportunity to reflect and recommit to W4FSU’s vision. We are in the midst of celebrating our diamond anniversary, and I’m amazed by all of the women who have connected through ten years’ worth of programming and service.

I am in awe of each chair and committee member who work tirelessly to develop comprehensive programming, steward our new members, execute effective and meaningful communication and so much more. As always, if you would like to participate in a leadership role, please reach out to any committee chair or contact me directly.

There is much to look forward to in the coming months. You should have received your invitation to the tenth-annual Backstage Pass, including a once-in-a-decade opportunity to celebrate during Friday night’s anniversary gala. During this year’s event, we will ask attendees to collectively “be the match” in support of FSU’s Great Give.

Stay tuned for news about our fourth-annual Women of Distinction Inspire Awards, in partnership with the FSU Alumni Association and the Orlando Seminole Club, in Orlando.

I could not be more optimistic about the next decade as your dedication and vision lead the way.
