New year, exciting plans.
As we start the new year, it is my great honor to assume the role of WGC Advisory Board Chair. I am excited to help lead the Women's Giving Circle in 2023 with WGC Vice Chair Candace Dodson-Reed, our Executive Committee, Advisory Board, and Executive Director, Buffy Beaudoin-Schwartz.
I would like to thank Barb Van Winkle for her years of leadership in the Women's Giving Circle, including the last four years as Advisory Board Chair. We are grateful that Barb will remain on our leadership team as the Immediate Past Chair, and we'll continue our strong partnership moving forward. In fact, I invite you to give to the Barb Van Winkle Leadership Fund in honor of her efforts, and those of WGC leaders the last 20 years!
