Hocus Pocus, let’s get into focus for the last quarter of the year! The year-end is officially here and like many of us, we have the next few months to end the year on top. As Women’s Policy Forum members I hope you have identified one or a couple of causes that you can help advance advocacy efforts for and improve the lives of women, children, and future leaders in your community. Our goal as an organization is to support you in these efforts and take a stand for justice where there is none.
It is through women leaders and community advocates like you, that we can celebrate this month’s festivities, in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. History and culture matter because they help create our current reality and prepare us for the brightest future.
Just as the season has changed, so do we as Women’s Policy Forum. As a board, we have recently identified our 2022 Nominating Committee, led by our former Chair, Cathy Holt. If you or anyone you know would like to consider board leadership, please contact the committee, and make a nomination.
Thanks to all the new members who came out to get to know each other at our New Member Meet and Greet held on September 27th. Amy Rasor and the membership committee continue to do an excellent job of bringing new members and cultivating existing members. They are always looking for new faces to serve!
This month, we will hear from an expert who will share with us valuable information on a topic we all at some point will face, Estate Planning. On Wednesday, October 12th we will hear from Dvorah Cristol, with Cristol Law, as she shares her unique way of prioritizing and getting in order the items needed to have the best process in place before end of life or facing the loss of a loved one.
We are just over a month away from our best event yet, our Annual Women’s Policy Forum Emerging Issues Symposium. This year we will hear from experts sharing the importance of remaining mentally balanced and identifying resources that benefit those who are most at risk. Be sure to save the date for November 11th and visit the Women’s Policy Forum website for updated information and to register today. Register here.
We will not meet in the month of November; all are encouraged to attend the Symposium. Be sure to mark your calendar for our last luncheon on the year, December 14th where we will vote and install new officers for 2023.
Thanks for all you do,
Women’s Policy Forum Chair
