I was able to spend New Year’s Eve celebrating the wedding of two dear friends. I hope the start of your year was similarly full of love and continues to grow in health and happiness. The beginning of the year can be particularly stressful as we come back from the holidays and the “let’s push that off until January” approach. Don’t forget that as a member of WILD, you have a community of women cheering you on! And you don’t have to wait until the next event to reach out to your friends here.
The Board of Directors has already been hard at work with big plans for 2023 – focusing on strengthening our Chapters and growing our Membership. Our work hopes to ensure that WILD continues helping our members thrive and drive change in the industry well into the future. There are also some exciting Chapter events planned for the Spring (check out the list below) and a huge thank you needs to be given to all the volunteer Chapter committees for their time and energy spent planning these. Make sure you attend to make the most of your WILD community!
Finally, as I think about WILD recently, I can’t help but think of all the wonderful images of Jamie Lee Curtis cheering for Michelle Yeoh during Michelle’s Best Actress win at the Golden Globes. Let’s all be like Jamie – let’s be each other’s cheerleaders and help make 2023 our year! I look forward to seeing everyone at LEDucation and LightFair in the next few months and keep your eye out for events and programs related to those conferences. Until then, stay WILD!
