President’s Message

Terry Tosh – July 2018

I want to thank you all for the opportunity to serve as the new FAW President in the coming session. I look forward to collaborating with the past and present board members and to bring some ideas to be tossed around and explored.

I will not be able to attend the August gathering, as my family and I have a cruise to Alaska that departs Friday, 8/24, but I will be there in spirit. Please feel free to contact me at any time with your thoughts, ideas and suggestions for moving forward and growing our group in personal and professional endeavors. My email address is Toshmanii@yahoo.com  I check this email several times a day, and will respond as quickly as possible.

Thanks again for your support and cooperation in helping to build even stronger committees and events. We can certainly use volunteers and expertise to increase everyone’s knowledge and add to the success of our diverse goals.

I hope to see and chat with all of you at the July picnic! Please come and bring a friend or two, as well as your inspiring thoughts and ideas.
