At the end of each year, many people take time to reflect on the past twelve months and then turn their attention to what lies ahead. For me, this year proved to be bittersweet. We fielded a strong slate of Democratic candidates, registered thousands of new voters, and engaged many new volunteers. While we fell short when the votes were counted, we must now harness all that new energy as we move forward and plan for the future.
I have come to the end of my term as president of WOW Dems. In January, Lori Kleinfield will assume those responsibilities. Lori brings a great deal of enthusiasm and positive energy to the position and I look forward to working with her as past president. The entire slate of candidates will be presented to members at the January 8th meeting.
I wish you and your families peace, love, good health, and happiness in the New Year.
Quarterly Meeting – Thursday, January 8th
Our first quarterly meeting of 2015 will be held on Thursday, January 8th at the Environmental Education Center, 4116 W. Plano Parkway, Plano 75093. Meet and greet begins at 6:30 with our meeting starting at 7 p.m.
In lieu of our usual program, we will spend the meeting introducing our new board and planning for 2015. We want your input on what you like about WOW as well as what changes you’d like to see.
Several people have volunteered to serve as committee chairs and they will be seeking volunteers to serve on those committees. Take some time beforehand to think about what areas interest you and consider joining a committee. This is where the real work happens and we need your help.
We’re looking forward to seeing you on January 8th. Bring a friend and bring your ideas to share.
Time to renew your membership
WOW Dems relies on membership donations to pay for our regular operating expenses.
Please log on here to renew your membership for 2015 or to join for the first time. We would love to increase the number of women who are interested in learning more about the political process and possibly running for office. Our best recruiting tool is word of mouth. Bring a friend to a meeting or event – let’s make a concerted effort to expand our membership in the New Year.
Thanks for your support.
WOW Dems – How to Get Involved
To get the most out of WOW Dems, we encourage you to join one of our committees. Most of our organization’s work takes place at the committee level, and while we will have quarterly meetings and other social and political events and activities throughout the year, joining a committee is the best way to get know members and build relationships within our community.
