I had the opportunity to attend the New Leaders social hosted by the Nominating Committee last week on Cinco de Mayo, it was so fun! Of course, the Nominating Committee had the Gatehouse decorated in line with the festive Cinco de Mayo holiday with great food and beverages. Ashely Roussel handed out fun and bright flower combs and we all had a great time catching up with one another. For those who had their counterparts for next year in attendance, there was even some Transitional chatter!
Miriam Huntley led Nominating this year and she took a minute to introduce her fantastic Committee who worked so hard to place our Leadership roster for the 2011-12 League year (which begins in a few weeks!).
The Nominating Committee 2010-11: Laurie Brown, Laura Redmond, Ashley Roussel, Miriam Huntley (Chair 2010-11), Beth Greenberg (not pictured: Nichole Neal, Frederique Dame and Tara Roussel (Chair Elect))
She also brought our attention to some Leadership training material her committee developed and posted on our League website. You can always find Leadership training and support materials in the Member Area in the Leadership forum, click here.
These are the topics you can currently find in the Leadership forum on our website, please login and read this material if you are in a Leadership position this coming League year, they are so helpful!
