Message from the President
The climate of the country is one of movement, of change, and dissatisfaction with the status quo. Messages we heard at our 40th Anniversary Convention included a new fervor for pushing passage of the ERA “once and for all,” and a call for significantly increasing the numbers of women participating in framing legislation for our future. Some commented that now is our time, that this is the moment when our actions will count most and when we can affect the greatest change.
My goal is to lead our organization by serving and listening to our membership from local and state caucuses, to grow our numbers dramatically by inviting women of various political views, invite more sponsorship and involvement from industry and more cooperation with other organizations. At a time when states are holding recall elections for their legislators, and when more people are standing up to be heard, the NWPC must also ramp up our efforts in order to give these women the larger platform they need and deserve.
For the next 40 years, we plan to add more state Caucuses, and to multiply the number of College Caucuses around the country. Additionally, we plan to continue to outreach to other organizations with whom we share purposes and to partner to meet goals.
Join us to help us reach our goal of 50/50 by 2020- together we can make it happen!
