A Note from Our Chairperson


Peg O'Connor
GAWN Chairperson 2015-2016


We're off to a great start for GAWN's 2015-2016 year with plenty of useful programs and interesting workshops lined up. We're undertaking some major projects this year, such as revamping our entire website to make it more user-friendly and intuitive. We're also working to improve and streamline our internal operations by updating our policies and job duties.

My job as chair is not only to ensure the overall health of the organization, but to make GAWN a friendly and welcoming place for you, our members, to come share a meal, create and nurture relationships, and hone your networking abilities.  To that end, I hope you will share your feedback with me--what are we doing right?  What should we change?  Talk to me or any of the other board members about your ideas and suggestions.  
Together we can make this an organization that serves you and your needs, both now and for years to come.
Let's do this!
