Area A Chapters are “movers and shakers”!

Awesome Area A includes the following chapters:  Abilene, Austin, Brownsville, El Paso Del Norte, Hill Country, Lake Highlands, McAllen and San Antonio

Wonderful things happened in the first quarter for the Area A Chapters!  I look forward to visiting each of my Chapters and I am so appreciative of the support of District Vice Presidents, Angela Ochoa and Tanya Endicott!   We have set up an Area A Box.com for everyone to share each other’s best resource meeting ideas, flyers, brochures, and other useful tools.

Abilene Chapter is cooking with gas!  LCP, Powerful Pam Redman and her line held a highly attended mixer – a night that included a professional headshot photo that included professional makeup and hair!   Several members attended and 7 new members have signed up!   Sounds like a great time and professional opportunity for the Abilene members!

Austin Chapter is still keeping it weird with LCP, Vivacious Victoria Reviel and her Chapter.  Austin took first place as the Chapters’ Best Costume at the February State WCR TREPAC Celebrity Waiter Event and then again brought it home as the winners at the Austin TREPAC Chili Cook-off event later in March!   Can anything stop their momentum!

Brownsville Chapter is muy caliente!   LCP, Wonderful Wally Cisneros and his executive line hosted a retreat for Area A Governor, Nancy Garcia and CATT Team Lead, Carolyn Wyckoff where a day was spent developing the business plan and 2014 direction.  Look for great things to happen in Brownsville!

El Paso Del Norte Chapter is hot, hot, hot!   LCP, Leader Lizeth and her Chapter have hit the floor running this year with the many events planned for the year!  They held their first membership mixer where they recruited 6 members!  The Chapter is having a Kindle Fire drawing for any new members and members that brought in new members!     The El Paso Del Norte Chapter will also be hosting a planning retreat on April 1st with Area A Governor, Nancy Garcia and CATT Team Lead, Dawn Lavka.  The first big fund raiser Masquerade Casino Night is already planned out for May 1st!

Hill Country Chapter is blooming business!  LCP, Iconic Isaac Mahone and his Chapter held a great March Business Resource meeting featuring Resolute Health.   They have a new hospital coming to the area bringing jobs and a lot of great programs and services to the area.   Hill Country Chapter also held a Bras for Cause calendar signing with the firefighters that walked the runway!   This Chapter’s Bras for Cause event was the most successful last year raising over 25K for the cause and another 25K for their Chapter!  Amazing!!

Highland Lakes Chapter is rising to the top with LCP, Sonya Powers!  Her Chapter LEADS the State as the number ONE Chapter in retention of members – Great Job!    They had a standing room only crowd at their February Business Resource Meeting with Special Guest Speaker Coach Spike Dykes!  Highland Lakes expects to continue bringing in crowds with their educational programs, great speakers and fun events that are relevant and important to the community.

McAllen Chapter is on fire with LCP, Gregarious Grace Montalvo and her executive line!   They just held a golfing outing that was well attended and have a great year planned!   The McAllen Chapter also hosted a planning retreat with Area A Governor, Nancy Garcia and CHATTS Team Lead, Carolyn Wyckoff.   The momentum of this Chapter is amazing with the support of a strong line and Past Presidents.

San Antonio Chapter Rocks with LCP, Courageous Corie Bolt and her team!   What can we say about this Chapter?  Did you know that Corie Bolt is the 2013 Texas Entrepreneur of the Year and PE, Susie Sheffield is the 2013 Texas Affiliate of the Year?   They both were recognized and celebrated at the February WCR/TAR Winter meeting event in Austin.  Congratulations to you both!   The San Antonio Chapter held a successful event called Boots and Bras in March.

I am honored to serve.
