2016-2017 President

Chadia Ghanem

It is Octoberfest WEC Style… It is the Year of Distinction Membership Fest on October 20th. We are excited for the opportunity of introducing like minded professional ladies to WEC.

“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Maya Angelou 

and this is what you- the members of WEC- have mastered: the art of love and understanding, support and welcome and above all the art of the smile.

Our luncheon will really show what WEC is all about- the sisterhood we share,

The mentoring we offer and the drive to make a difference in the future of girls and ladies in our community.  

We are looking forward to a wonderful event where we will have at least 35 prospective members join us for lunch. So, please ladies, let’s welcome all our guests with open arms and give them that WEC charm.  

This month’s Cannon Circle will be hosted by Shelley Pumphrey for a Spooktacular event at her beautiful home. So, come and join us if you dare.  Come with a mask or a hat, as a witch or a goblin, or you can always come as your beautiful self… It is Halloween time and we will enjoy tasting eyeballs, cocktails & witches brew... some snacks like a finger or two! Get ready for a wicked time on Monday, October 24th, 2016 at 6pm - 8pm. You'd be Ghoulish to miss this party!

Let’s not forget the October Book Club meeting on Thursday, the 27th, at Eileen O’Connors’ Home.  Invites will be sent and the book is " Woman of Note".  Bookies tend to meet for a relaxing discussion of the book and wonderful moments of bonding with fellow WEC sisters.  

In closing, I just wanted to thank all of you ladies for continuing to invite, to contribute and to really be there for WEC and its members and for your friendship.  I wish you a very successful October and we will connect soon. 

“Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.”  Anaïs Nin

Best Regards,

October Book Club: A Woman of Note

Member Spotlight - Dee Moustakas

WEC and me 
WEC has always been an important part of my life –– personally and professionally. I joined in 1984, sat on the Board for 14 years and had the privilege of serving as president in 2005. Today, I chair the Past President’s Committee, sit on the WEW review committee and serve on the Greetings committee. But what I get from WEC far surpasses what I give. I have a circle of incredibly intelligent, fun women who are my friends; a vast network of resources; and unfailing support. Thank you for always making me feel valued and welcome. 

Writing that bears results 
Writer … editor … proofreader. A few choice words. All of which you can say apply to me.  When I started Kodiak Communications, Inc., in 1991, I provided many of the services of an advertising agency –– graphic design, copywriting, art direction and print supervision. However, when my physical limitations prevented me from providing the level of service my clients deserved, I decided to regroup and turn my attention solely to “words.”

Today, I provide editing and proofreading services to Baptist Health, Children of America, FIU and the Library of Congress to name a few.

I collaborate with graphic designers and printers to create promotional materials for clients ranging from manufacturers of LED lighting and high-end leather goods to trade show planners and a French Executive Chef. I even wrote the City of Fort Lauderdale’s Recycling campaign and a handbook on gangs for Palm Beach County.

            When I’m not writing “romance” copy for Brownie Brittle packaging, you’ll find me describing the merits of a Myrtha pool for Recreational Design and Construction. In other words, I know a little about a lot of different subjects and have the luxury of gazing out my office window every day for inspiration.
