CALP Connections: June 2017
As my time as Chair for the CLN ends I have been thinking a lot about gratitude. I am grateful I woke up this morning. I am grateful for the strong, supportive, dedicated staff at the CLN. I am grateful the roof in my office did not leak during the last rainfall. I am extremely grateful for the incredible group of women who have served on the CLN Board with me. I would like to use this, my final insert to the CLN Newsletter as Chair of the Board, to express my supreme gratitude to these women whom I have had the privilege of calling colleague and friend.
Thank you so much for volunteering to serve on the CLN Board over the years. I know that for all of you, it was an “add on” to the many other things that you do; including your CALP, your family, other volunteer opportunities and your social life. I appreciate that you were willing to serve and I hope you know your time and input was valued.
Thank you for taking calls and responding quickly to emails and helping brainstorm solutions. Thank you for taking the time to govern our organization appropriately.
Thank you for bringing your passion, intellect, insight, experience and resources to the table. Thank you for not allowing things in our organization that you would not have allowed in your own. I appreciate that you used all of your experience, skills, knowledge and education to move our organization forward.
Thank you for your humour and patience.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time serving as the Chair of this incredible organization and working with each one of you amazing, marvelous, fabulous people. I look forward to continuing to support the work of the CLN, as I move into a different role.
New thinking: Be Bold. Engage Others. Be Inclusive. Collective Voice. Empower. Generate. Enable others. Be the change we want to see. Be Interested. Be Curious. Be Engaged.
Have a wonderful summer!
