CAWEE has an engaged, dedicated Board of volunteers who each hold two-year terms. The Board meets monthly, with occasional supplemental meetings as necessary. The meetings are enjoyable and productive, with each of the 11-12 directors bringing updates and gathering ideas for her area of responsibility. These directors are backed by committees of volunteers who also team up and share their ideas, so there is lots of effective conversation going on! The ultimate aim of all these efforts is, of course, to ensure our flagship morning meetings, along with social events and any other services we provide continue to be helpful and worthwhile for our members.
The after-work events committee keeps us meeting in person by offering fun and engaging activities where members and guests can get to know each other in an informal way and this is often where some great bonds are formed. Attendance at the events is optional, but looking
ahead at ideas for future events, if you are in Toronto, you won’t want to miss them!
