Letter from the President

ABWA Board PhotoDear ABWA CCC,

Here we are, wrapping up 2015, planning for another exciting and memorable year. Let me start by saying how thankful I am for each and every member and their contributions to this organization, including our Board & Committee Members. It is all of you that make ABWA CCC such a wonderful organization to be a part of. Due to the hard work of so many, we were able to make our first anniversary year a stunning success! We not only made a difference in the lives of our individual members and guests through our Women’s Leadership Conference, Educational and Inspiring Lunch Programs, Networking Socials, and Recognition, but we were also able to give back to our community by participating in fundraisers for Dress for Success and Metropolitan Center for Women & Children. We also achieved our goal to fund our first SBMEF Scholarship, which will be awarded in May 2016.

The Board has recently approved some noteworthy changes. Beginning in 2016, each guest will have an opportunity to attend three registered events in a calendar year before being asked to join. Also, our new members will receive an electronic PDF version of the Welcome Packet. Lastly, we are excited to be adding a Member Spotlight feature. The selected member will be featured on our website, in our newsletter, and will have the opportunity to present herself to the attendees of one of our luncheons. This is just another way we want to support you. Members will be selected at random.

Looking ahead, our Board will continue to work to fulfill the needs of our members while supporting our ABWA mission. It is our goal to ensure that we provide valuable programs in a fun and exciting environment. We are a “Grow You” organization with an emphasis on education and empowerment where we provide access to leadership, networking, and recognition opportunities – the three basic elements of career achievement. Delivering these opportunities is my passion and purpose for serving.

Once again, thank you, for making 2015 such a spectacular year. I am so very proud to serve as your President. I wish for each and every one of you a new year filled with all the joy and success you so desire. Remember, every accomplishment begins with the decision to try. On behalf of the ABWA CCC Board, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


Rachel Nunez

ABWA CCC President
