A July Note from President Carrie

Wow! It’s already July! Where is this summer going? I hope you all are having a wonderful summer. Ours has become increasingly busy with the last part of July, Derek has business travel the last 3 WEEKS; the girls have summer programs and vacation Bible School so that means I turn into a single Sherpa mom. Trying to get things done is CRAZY!! But my reward is coming, I get to go on a trip to Ireland with my coming up in August! Looking at my schedule made me think that if you weather through the hard/messy/crazy part of life you will get to your reward. Which brings me back to you guys, I completely feel like we are in a transition year, we need to get back on track with our members. Muddle through the hard/messy/crazy part and get back to the fun stuff! But the board and I can’t do this alone! I need your feedback, ideas, creativity. Let us know what we can do for you! Let’s start working towards our reward of a strong chapter again! Have a wonderful rest of your summer!

Hope to see you at a few functions! Carrie

Tips on becoming a great leader



Delegate.
It’s about supporting people and encouraging growth. None of us start out knowing all of the answers. Take the time to explain your ideas/needs and foster growth.

Include Others.
Include all members. Do not assume someone is not interested or that they should know what you are planning. Invite everyone with the same level of excitement and expectation.

Communicate.
Take the time to communicate in three different ways: 1. verbal, 2. non-verbal (written, asl, ect.), and 3. social media (Facebook, Twitter, email, website). 

Respect Others.
Respect each other at all times. Your words have the power to change the world. Do not speak from anger or frustration. Use yourself as an example of what a successful professional looks like.

Own It.
Take responsibility. Do not change the rules or requirements mid process. Handle concerns behind the scenes without creating new issues for others.

Recognize Others.

Share the credit. Recognize all those who help with events and projects. Simply say “thank you.” It is the little things we do that make all the difference in someone’s day.
