From the President’s Desk: February 2011

Hello all,

I missed a WONDERFUL meeting in January! I always look forward to the membership drive meeting and was disappointed when I found out I would not be in town.

For those of you who don’t know, I serve on the board of representatives for the national ALS Association. The annual meeting started Jan. 20 (our MWN meeting date) and I was the voting member for Iowa. Since my husband died of ALS, I’m passionate about making things better for ALS patients as well as the Iowa chapter’s proposal to increase the percentage of revenue assigned to research. The meeting was successful but I did think of MWN on Thursday night, wishing that Star Trek teleporting device was available so I could enjoy the evening with you!

I’m really looking forward to our meeting this month at Maxie’s. I’ve not been there before, which is one of the things I love about Metro – the ability to try new places that I might not try on my own. Mackenzie Sposeto will provide the program on self-defense for women. She will also share information on a new children’s boot camp.

It’s not too late to join the steering committee and I will put on my recruiting hat during the February meeting!

Have a great Valentine’s Day and I’ll see you on the 17th!

Best regards,

-Becky Patton-Quigley
