Why is this meeting important?

We have members leaving us and new members coming on.  This is such an exciting time to reflect on what we have accomplished and where we plan on going in the future, all aligning with our mission and vision.  We need you to be there so you can join in on our successes.

And did I mention we are giving out awards to some AMAZING members…which could be YOU! We are not announcing award winners in advance so we really need YOU there!

Invite your director. Invite your supervisor. Invite your coworkers. Make sure they RSVP here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/icsew-transition-general-membership-meeting-july-18-2017-registration-35414799619 by July 11.

You must have a ticket for entry. Whether you are a representative, an alternate, a board member or a guest…you all need to RSVP.  Your RSVP is important because we need to know:

  • Are you a guest?
  • Are you staying on as a representative or alternate?
  • Are you changing roles, moving from an alternate to representative?
  • If leaving or changing roles…who is replacing you, contact details including email?
  • Accurate numbers for catering, set-up, and printing!

We look forward to seeing YOU!

More than 95% of their hygiene products come from donors.

If you are unable to contribute to The Other Bank, but would like to donate to your local YWCA, please visit http://www.ywca.org/site/apps/kb/cs/contactsearch.asp?c=cuIRJ7NTKrLaG&b=7527667&state=WA&submit=submit for a list of local YWCA associations.

As your agency coordinator, I welcome your questions and thank you in advance for your generosity.  In 2016, this drive collected $10,800.00 worth of toiletries to help women and families in Thurston County.  Let us work to make the 2017 drive an even bigger success.
