Region Director Message
Hello Region 3 Leaders,
I am so looking forward to serving you as your Region Director for the 2013/2015 term! I think it's going to be an exciting time with many positive changes and challenges. I want you to feel free to contact me with questions and concerns at your local units (LUs). My hope is to empower you with the resources you need to succeed - by growing your membership and developing your leaders and members for future leadership opportunities within your unit, Council, Region and State!
For those that don't know me, I thought I'd share a little about myself. I am an Oregon Native, but have been in Vancouver, WA since 2000. I've been married for 23 years to Quentin, and we have an 11 year old daughter, Victoria. She is starting middle school next year, so we are interested to see how this new experience goes - for all of us!
I've been part of the Parent Teacher Association since my daughter started Kindergarten, in a variety of officer and volunteer roles, and I've served on the Vancouver Council as Secretary. My favorite PTA 'job' is Membership Chair. I was Membership Chair on our Region Service Delivery Team (SDT) this 2012/13 year and I have been involved with membership since 2008 at the local units, and will continue to serve in that capacity at our middle school LU.
I am seeking people who want to be a part of our Region Service Delivery Team for the 2013/14 year. This is an opportunity to put your leadership skills to work in a capacity outside your local unit. I'd be happy to share job descriptions and more information with you. Our State Directors have summer meetings planned for the SDT chairs: Region Membership Chair (RMC), Outreach Chair (ROC), Legislative Chair (RLC) and Programs Chair (RPC) to meet with their State Directors for more information and training. We also need Service Specialists to assist our Region in a variety of ways. This is something we need to get going on as soon as possible. I'd love to have a team meeting late June or early July, and we have a Leadership Conference and Outreach Summit scheduled for Friday August 2, in the Seattle area.
I look forward to meeting and working with you all!
Region 3 Director
