By the time you read this, 2017 will be well underway—and I am already too late to even wish you happy New Year! But I am going to do it anyway. I have a feeling this year is going to be all about adventure and lots of change – so let’s get ready for whatever that means for each of us personally.  And my wish for you is that 2017 be a year of great satisfaction in whatever challenge you undertake.

Here at Leadership Women, we have been talking about change for a few months now and we think we are ready for our ‘reveal’ as the New Year begins!  The first thing you will notice is our whole new look – just take a look at our website.  We hope you like it—our new logo, new ‘voice’ – which we hope better convey both the professionalism of our leadership programs and the sense of family among our graduates.  Please send us your comments – we would love to hear your reaction to our new look!

And as many of you know, we are planning our own adventure this year in the form of our first national conference, to be held at the Omni Park West Hotel in Dallas on July 27 – 29th. Our theme is “Creating a New Vision of Leadership—A National Conversation” and we have a fabulous program lined up for you featuring women at the forefront in politics, healthcare, education, technology, finance and the arts, talking about the difference women are making in these fields. A big class reunion and a 30th Anniversary celebration for Leadership America is planned as well—this event is going to sell out fast so I hope to see you there!

Happy 2017!
