"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to leave the world a better place, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived, this is to have succeeded" -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Welcome back ladies. We hope you had a restful summer and are ready to participate in our new year at WEC.  We have the results from last month’s survey. We greatly appreciate your feedback.  Our goal is to do a good job communicating and delivering what you want from WEC. We know that if we strive to improve communication among ourselves, we will learn more about each other and the gifts each of us has.  

So here is what we have so far on the survey:

1. 75.86% were very satisfied with the WEC meeting content and agenda.

2. 62.76% opted to continue having outside speakers at our meetings.

3. We had 16 responses regarding joining the WEC Speakers Committee.  For those who are interested, please send an email confirming your support.

4. 75% would prefer table talks so that the members get to better know each other.

5. 25% of you were likely to recommend WEC to a friend.

6. We had 2 responses regarding their interest in joining the branding/marketing committee for WEC.

We want to thank you for completing the survey and supporting WEC.  We always need your caring hands and hearts, your bright minds and ideas, your smiles and winks.  We know that together we can make a difference and accomplish so much.

We are listening to your requests and would like to make sure that we have time for each other. Our greatest strengths and one of the greatest WEC values is sisterhood and there is no better way to strengthen this value but by spending time together during a meeting.  For that we will have few meetings with table topics i.e. no outside speaker and will continue shaping our meetings to reflect your feedback. We are looking forward to a wonderful year of distinction.

2016-2017 Theme of the Year

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.
