Message from the President

September 2015

unnamed-2One of the best parts of my position this year is getting to work with the amazing group of women that is the NAWN board. I can’t say enough about these ladies, each of whom is inspiring, dedicated, and generous with their time. I look forward to our meetings each month because I truly enjoy working with this group toward the common goal of making NAWN the best organization that we can. And, we are usually able to have a pretty good time in the process. The board meets at 7 pm, typically the second Wednesday of every month, and these meetings are always open to the general membership. Just email for all the details, we would love to see you there.


Based on several factors, last year the board decided that it was in the best interest of the organization to shift board terms from the calendar year of January 1 – December 31, to the fiscal year of June 1 – May 31. Up until this year, NAWN held its Annual Meeting in October. The Annual Meeting is when board members give official year-end reports and the next slate of board members is officially voted on and approved. With the shift in our board timeline, this meeting will now be held in February – stay tuned for date and time, and please plan to attend. This is the perfect opportunity to learn about everything NAWN accomplishes in a year and what our board does. In the meantime, we invite you to email if you are interested in learning more about board positions or being on our board.

I look forward to seeing everyone at one of the many great events we have planned for the fall!


Heather Buchanan

NAWN President
