It has been nothing short of an honor to be among a select group of women who in almost 80 years have led this organization so successfully. But I am proud to be the new president of the BBHPMC and have not let any grass grow under my feet. We have taken the best practices of the hundreds of women who came before us, the members and boards, and we're building new and exciting stepping stones for our journey. One of those is the website you see before you. We hope you like it!
We've also made an effort to change up our general meetings to add new and different activities for our members to engage in. My goal for meetings this year was to provide some interactive fun, and enriching content. So some of our meetings will be social and fun and others will be more of an opportunity for members to gain something through a learning experience. We have lots of great ideas!
This year we've also made a goal to increase our sponsorships as well as increase our community engagement. As a long-standing pillar of the community, I want everyone to know who we are and what we do. So we've built a communications and marketing team to help us build relationships in the community and to tell our story. This blog is one of those new steps. We hope you'll find it informative and entertaining! And on our Partners page, you will see all of the businesses and organizations who we have been building relationships with. We are so excited to be able to support each other!
Last year, our president Joanie MacRaild and her board did a phenomenal job at increasing membership and increasing our social activities for the moms. We now have monthly Mom's Nights Out, a Book Club, and a very social, active, bunch of women. This year we are following in their shoes to continue offering lots of fun time for our mommies.
Also last year our field trips team did an amazing job providing a wide variety of fun and affordable field trips for our members. And this year they have continued their enthusiastic efforts. We are already having a blast getting out and about.
And last year's community service team did an outstanding job keeping our members engaged in a project each month to give back. This year, we will be carrying that forward and already have lots of opportunities planned to help our community.
We are a busy group. But more to the point, we are a smart, skilled, talented and energetic group of women, full of ideas and goals, and the passion to make the most of this organization every single day. And I hope that our members feel more fulfilled because of it. I know I certainly do.
So, I want to thank everyone who has put their heart and soul into this organization to give it life and longevity. Thank you for taking such good care of it so that it was here for me when I came to the community. And thank you to everyone who is continuing to breathe life into it and to keep it strong a vital. We are the story of the BBHPMC and I hope that there will be many more chapters to come.
