Committee Updates

Watch for updates as our 2018-2019 Committees become active!

Program Committee Update

We had a very informative meeting in April at The Daniels Fund in Cherry Creek. Maro Casparian of the Denver District Attorney’s office spoke about Identity Theft and Fraud, and I believe everyone in attendance learned something new and was reminded of practices that can help protect their identity.  Many thanks to Dina Baise for coordinating this interesting meeting on an important topic.

Our May meeting will be a Wine Tasting and Food Pairing at Water 2 Wine in Centennial, complete with winery tour. Our guest will be Malissa Nugent, Owner and Wine Educator, along with our own Morgan Unks, who will present the Food Pairing.  It’s a convenient location (University and County Line Road) with plenty of free parking, and wine will be available for purchase at a discount.  What could possibly be better?

In June, we’ll meet at the Molly Brown Summer House. Details for this meeting are being finalized.

 Membership Committee Update

The greater the loyalty of a group toward the group, the greater is the motivation among the members to achieve the goals of the group, and the greater the probability that the group will achieve its goals.Rensis Likert

This quote reminded me of EWI.  As I listened to Higgins Ernst at our May meeting telling the group how she became a member.  It is as simple as a conversation from another member.  I am so happy that Diana Steverson took the time to talk to Higgins and invite her to a meeting.  The rest is history.  Please find the opportunity to talk to potential members about what we do at EWI and your passion will show.  We have welcomed two representatives in May– Amber Newberry of Colorado Women’s College @ DU and Mallory Thomas with Junior Achievement.  We are lucky to have both of them and they will add value and talent to our group.  I think it just comes down to sharing what we do.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me I am happy to talk with anyone about our group.  We want to continue growing.  We have 23 firms, 29 representatives, and 14 sustaining members.

Treasurer Update

We would appreciate it if you would continue to notify the treasurer when you send in your renewal fees and when you receive your receipts from EWI Corporate.

Our EWI Denver Chapter is now on a budget fiscal year to align with EWI Corporate, October 1 – September 30.

Sergeant-at-Arms Update!

The Sargent at Arms receives RSVP’s through the online system EZ Register. It is very important to RSVP before the deadline, including any guests, as this information is used for the head count for dinner.  If you are paying by credit card, please pay when you RSVP through EZ Register.  It is more cost- effective for us as a chapter to process the credit cards through this site.  If you wish to pay by check, select that option and bring your check to the meeting. We do not have a petty cash fund, so please do not bring cash.
