I knew from the moment I was asked to be the NPC Chairman that my time would undoubtedly be about service. NPC is all about serving its member groups, collegians and alumnae. Service is a founding tenant for many of our organizations and it is something we all do gladly. This past weekend I had the distinct honor of also serving as hostess to the Executive Committee as they joined me at my home for our annual January retreat. It was a relaxing and productive meeting as we outlined how we could best serve our constituents in the coming year. Below are some of the topics we discussed:
• Long-range plan
• 2012 annual meeting
• Work of special committees
• 2013 regional leadership conference program topics
• NPCWomen.org website upgrades and redesign
I left the weekend feeling fulfilled and excited for what lies ahead, but mostly grateful for the four women who have agreed to serve alongside me for the next two years.
