The December Program is our popular Holiday party at the beautiful Wellshire Inn on December 9th. Details will be provided at a later date

Our October meeting was the 21st at the beautiful Wellshire Inn. As always the food was delicious, the service was great and the company was a delight. Our program came from our EWI Corporate Webinar library as part of our EWI mission to promoting member firms, enhancing personal and professional development, and encouraging community involvement. As EWI chapters are facing challenging circumstances through the ongoing pandemic, EWI Corporate has downloaded a great selection of programs/speakers to accommodate the memberships. This program was on the importance of social media in growing our EWI branches and branding EWI as a valuable asset to your firm/business. EWI Corporate has developed a library of videos on YOUTUBE. Look for Executive Women International and watch the many videos available on membership retention, Presentation skills, social media and other EWI chapters helpful videos on our mission statement and professional growth.

 

Our September meeting was at the delicious Maggiano’s South where we installed our new board. We welcomed Dina Baise as our new Denver Chapter President. Megi Scowcroft our very dependable Vice President. Salina Mitchell our trusted Treasurer. Melissa Ford Communications Committee Chair, Rhonda Sheya our new Secretary and Ching-yuan Hy, Advisor. As recent President, under unprecedented challenges, she served us with leadership and direction and we are grateful for her assistance with the new board, Thank You Ching. With a few positions not filled this small but dedicated board will share several board duties to ensure that our Denver Chapter remains vital and an asset to our loyal members.

In August we met downtown at Citizen Rail at the Hotel Born with the beautiful Renee Norcross as our speaker. She delighted us with practical and experiential exercises that taught us how to quickly access and activate the most powerful parts of our minds and emotions to catapult our leadership capacity and resilience during the most uncertain time in history.
