I want to thank all of you for your faith and confidence in me by electing me to be your new President. I am honored to assume this position and serve you, the Sacramento Republican Women Federated. I would like to extend a special Thank You to the outgoing board members for their dedication and hard work this past year. The outgoing board provided many interesting and informative speakers and activities during their tenure. I would also like to say “Thank you Lynn”, for making yourself available to me as I learn the roles and responsibilities of President. I am committed to continue the tradition of providing great speakers and enjoyable luncheon meetings. Additionally, I want to be very approachable and available to all our members. The only way to ensure that we are providing programs that interest everyone is by listening to your feedback and suggestions.
Last but certainly not least, I want to thank the new board members who have volunteered to serve with me this coming year. This year’s new board members are: Joan Moghadam, 1st V.P; Carol Usmial, 2nd V.P.; Sandy Sinclair, Recording Secretary; Peggy McGinness, Treasurer; Ruth Crone, Financial Review Officer; Terri Lyn Alexander, Corresponding Secretary; and Margie DeRow, Parliamentarian. Directors are Sharon Sanders, Mary Smothers, Fran Kruger, and Kay Burton. I still need more Directors, so please stepup and serve if you can. We need you and would love to have you be a part of the team! We must remember that the purpose of our club is to reach out to others through our Community service. Keep in mind, since this is not an election year we won’t be involved in walking precincts or phone banking. However, it is imperative that we stay connected with our communities by serving and caring for those less fortunate than we are.
I am excited about serving as President and look forward to all the contributions we can make. We just have to care about what happens in this nation, in our state, and in our communities. If we come together, work as a team, and make a commitment to “get it done,” we will be successful and we can make a difference! Finally, please remember two of our most dedicated and longstanding members are also committed to serving this club and make themselves available to assist us to be the best we can be! That’s Dottie Linden, 3rd V.P. of CFRW Northern Division and Janet Gardner, our Capitol Corridor Regional Director.
Suzanne Jones, President
