We welcome the month of March and look forward to the first day of spring.
March 1 through May 31 is the Spring Membership Recruitment Campaign. Every Pathfinder member is challenged to be actively inviting guests to our meetings and to spread the word on the value of member-ship in ABWA. Share your story - why did you join and why are you still an active member? Plan and practice your words so you can share it on the spot anytime you have an opportunity. Our February meeting was full of valuable information you can use. So fun seeing all of you engaged in learning from Robin. She did an awesome job helping us. Remember, some of us have homework, getting our profile updated with a photo on Community Connections. It will be nice to see 100% of Pathfinder members with a pictures!
March is Women’s History Month, the month we select our Woman of the Year, and elect a nominating committee. March 8 is International Wom-en’s Day and March 31 is “Equal Pay Day for Women”. Established 23 years ago, the date symbolizes how far into the year women must work to earn what men earned in the previous year. Wearing red is a symbol of the wage disparity and how far in the red women are compared to their male counterparts.
March is a very busy month, one where we need to lift up the importance of women in business. All of the above are talking points when introducing women to the value of being a National and Chapter member of ABWA.
