Leadership Women Advantage CommunityDuring this time of crisis, Leadership Women has had the great pleasure of receiving messages of encouragement from our current class members and our graduates.  These are bright moments during a time of uncertainty and we thank you.

Reaching out is important….staying connected.  Our LW Facebook Groups help to give us a since of community during a time of isolation for many of us.  But we also encourage you to reach out to fellow class members during this time and let them know the impact they have had on you.  Check in on them to see how they are doing.  If this time has taught us anything, it is to appreciate those times together and the moments we share.

Remember, the Member Portal provides access to your class members – find their emails or phone numbers and brighten someone’s day.

When I started Leadership Texas in 1998, speakers told us that by the end of that year, we would have lifelong friends. I was skeptical.  That was 22 years ago.  Yesterday, I hosted a Zoom call with nine women whose friendship has roots in the Leadership Texas/Leadership America programs of 1998 and 1999. Just wanted to say thank you and assure you that the leadership programs have had great impact!

Pennie Boyett, Leadership Texas 1998

I am very excited about the program. I truly look forward to relationship building and networking. So, I am saddened by the effects COVID on the opportunity. I will do everything possible to maximize the opportunity no matter how it is presented and be a resource to all.

Thank you for arranging a virtual gathering. It will not be the same as a face-to-face, but definitely easier to attend.

Brenda Kihl, Leadership Texas 2020

I appreciate the positivity and I am definitely doing my best to make sure myself, including everyone I come across is safe and has what they need. I have requested to join the group on FB and cannot wait until it’s accepted.  Thank you for adding value to me at our conference and I look forward to growing with you all and all of the amazing woman in our group. Have a great day and best wishes to you all as well.
