Letter From the President Elect

ABWA Board PhotoSpring is in the air, and it’s time for flowers to bloom. I hope that your ABWA experiences thus far are helping you to blossom both professionally and personally. As our board prepares for a new board to lead in July, we’re evaluating our processes and ensuring that you’re getting the most value from your time with us. I’d like to share with you some pointers on “How to Get the Most from Your ABWA Experience.”

  • Show up– The 1st step after joining an organization such as ABWA is to show up. Be visible and active. This will not only benefit you by obtaining new knowledge, but also shows others that you’re committed and dependable.
  • Build relationships– Don’t just hand out your business cards. Make an effort to get to know your fellow members and guests outside of our monthly luncheons.
  • Ask for help– All too often, we as women, put the weight of the world on our shoulders and fear failure to the point where we restrain potential. Remember to embrace failure as an integral stage of your growth, but ask for guidance. Some of your fellow members may have been through similar experiences and can offer some support and insight.
  • Set goals– It is important to gage growth and challenge yourself by setting attainable goes to work toward.

I would encourage you to log in to our WIN at, and take advantage of the training and knowledge this is accessible to you through ABWA National.

Our current board has done an amazing job for our first year building an infrastructure to carry us through a successful future. If you have not had an opportunity to check out our local website, please do at

Also, if you’re a paid member, be sure to add your contact information and bio to our directory page. We are excited to soon share some new functions we’ve been planning- keep a look out. As always, we welcome any of your suggestions to develop and support our onward journey.

Yours Truly,

Rachel Nunez, President Elect
