What a year 2020 has been!
The ups, the downs…the changes we have all been through. As I write this, there is good news on a vaccine that will finally help us finally get past this Coronavirus outbreak and I can hardly wait for it to be widely available. Unfortunately, the flu season is now upon us and it remains all the more important to stay safe, protect ourselves, our loved ones and our communities.
The mission of any professional society is primarily educational and informational. Our influence flows from several continuing and highly visible functions; to disseminate relevant training, to maintain professional excellence through certification, to raise public awareness, and to give awards for our most successful efforts. Through their work, they help to define and set standards for their professional fields and to promote high standards of quality. The ways CWEA accomplish this have been significantly altered, perhaps for a very long time, but our mission remains the same.
In support of this mission, CWEA leadership shifted live events that were planned through this Fiscal Year 2020/ Q1-2021 to webinars and setup online workshops to replace the live events.
As we close out 2020, we look to a brighter future and if you’d like to be a big part of it the CWEA’s SF Bay Section is looking for an enthusiastic SFBS member to serve on the Board for the local section and there is also an opening for SFBS Treasurer. The Board of Directors position is a five-year commitment. Responsibilities will vary each year, and the position will progress from Secretary, Program Director, Vice President, President to Past President. If you are interested or know another CWEA member that is interested in joining the Board, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nominations will be accepted until 6:30pm on Dec 15th. Voting will then begin and end at 5:30 pm on Dec 31st. The new Board member will be installed at our Annual Awards Banquet February 5th , 2021.
