What is your goal for 2016? We are all striving to be more successful in our various roles. It is what brings many of us to ABWA. I have found this to be the place to grow in many respects. This organization provides endless possibilities for that growth with tools and resources on our WIN site as well as leadership opportunities at the local, district and national level. I encourage you to find a committee within our chapter that allows you to share your gifts and talents to keep us growing in our membership - with the addition of strong capable women - and in providing all members with an arsenal of skills and support. This will help us achieve our individual and collective best. You are also invited to get involved with the Des Moines Area Council of ABWA. This interaction will open the door to even more opportunities, working with women from all three Des Moines chapters. Take full advantage of your ABWA membership and let that involvement help you to achieve the success and leadership skills that you have admired in others and aspire to demonstrate. I welcome you to reflect on your personal and professional challenges and successes of 2015. I hope that you have found both support and celebration in our Chapter and continue to do so in the year ahead.
