Happy New Year!
What a year 2019 has been. I cannot believe it’s over already! We have had many fun programs, starting last January at the Denver Aquarium. We hosted events all over town, at restaurants, and at our Member Firms (Wells Fargo, Junior Achievement), just to name a few. What program was your favorite last year and why?
As we start a new year, what programs are you wanting to see? What would help you engage more? What can help our membership grow? (And retain!) My door is always open to hear your thoughts on if you think there is something we can do differently. Just because it’s always been done a certain way, does not mean that needs to stay the same. I think we had a wonderful program at the Wellshire Event Center, breaking a tradition of where we have always had our previous December program. Change can be a good thing!
I know many people set resolutions for the New Year. I don’t tend to set resolutions, in all honesty, because I know I am not the best at following through on them. Instead, I just try to set into the new year with positivity. What can you do to impact those around you positively? I try to keep my social media pretty upbeat, because let’s be honest. There is a lot of crud that is going on in the world. If people know they can come to my social media sites for pictures of food, animals, and happiness, that’s one little impact I can make. So my intention for 2020 is to give one compliment a day. What can you commit to?
As you look at 2020, please also keep in mind that LCAM will be in nearby Albuquerque, New Mexico. Let’s make the Denver chapter visible and seen at LCAM! Let’s talk about carpools, room sharing, whatever is necessary to get as many of our fellow sisters to attend. It’s an enlightening conference with like minded women!
I hope you all had some time to relax, rejuvenate, and recharge for 2020. I look forward to leading this chapter to an awesome year.
President, EWI Denver
