Executive Board on Retreat

The executive board decided to take a little time to get to know each other better with a fun filled night of painting, wine, and laughter. We painted a “lady in red” in honor of ABWA’s colors, black and red.

Mershon Bergeron – January 2015

Congratulations to Mershon Bergeron, of Region’s Bank, for winning this month’s President’s Certificate of Merit. Mershon has been active in ABWA since the first planning meetings, back when we were simply a formation committee with big ideas! She answers every request with a “yes” and in doing so, she has provided our league’s executive board (previously the formation committee chairs) with a board room for meetings, she is our official photographer, and she was invaluable in helping us to set up our bank account, which, as a newly formed nonprofit organization, was fairly complicated.

Thanks for all you that do Mershon!

Christi Felder – December 2014

Congratulations to this month’s recipient of the President’s Certificate of Merit. Following our recent elevator pitch program, given by the dynamic Desiree Young, Christi’s employer, Ricoh, held a company-wide contest to see who could come up with the best pitch for the entire company. And, Christi’s pithy pitch won! We are so proud of Christi and so pleased that she was able to apply something that she had learned at one of our monthly programs to her real life, and with smashing success!
