On September 8th, the FWA kicked off the fall season with another elegant reception at Le Cirque. The gracious atmosphere of this sophisticated venue stimulated some excellent networking and conversation, while host Sirio provided a delicious menu of Italian specialties.
The nearly 100 members and guests attending had an opportunity to meet and chat with FWA president and host Katrin Dambrot and other FWA leaders. In her welcoming remarks, Katrin recapped some highlights of the FWA programs and introduced the association’s fall schedule. She also presented Ria, FWA’s president-elect.
The value of committee membership was the theme of the evening. Both Katrin and Ria discussed the contributions that a variety of committees make, and members learned firsthand how joining a committee could expand their network and add immense value to their careers. The leaders’ discussion was followed by a brief networking event that Membership Chair Hermina “Nina” Batson had organized. It asked attendees to talk to each other about the committees they were interested in. For each participant, interests had been recorded on the front of her badge.
