2016-2017 President

Chadia Ghanem

Hello September- a new month full of possibilities!  

With Labor Day as the first Monday of September, it officially marks the end of the Summer Season.  We feel the excitement in the air, between beginning of the school year or the businesses gearing up for the holiday season and of course to welcoming our beloved Snow Birds.  Now, that we are back to our regular WEC monthly meetings and events, we highly recommend you 
continue to keep those dues coming in.  Our goal is to have all the dues paid by this coming lunch meeting. So, please for those who didn’t pay their dues online; bring your check for the lunch meeting on Thursday, September 15th at the Lauderdale Yacht Club.

I am pleased to announce that our Signature fund raiser Corks & Forks- chaired by Carolyn Zaumeyer- is shaping up to be one of the best events we’ve ever had.  It will be memorable and upscale. So, save the date to celebrate with us on the evening of February 2nd, 2017.  Announcement will be made at our upcoming luncheon.
As for our events this month, we have a The Book Club who will be discussing a wonderful book- Open House by Elizabeth Berg- the New York Times bestselling author of many novels and has made Oprah’s Book Club- for the members, please join us for wine, apetizers, Edie’s homemade cookies and yes, did I mention discussion of this interesting novel?!   September Book Club will be held on Sept. 14th at Christine Economos home.
We also have the Cannon Circle hosted by Rose White at her office on Thursday, Sept. 29th and if you have not tasted Rose’s amazing home cooked meals, you are missing a lot.  This is really the time that we all connect, get to better know each other and really enjoy each other’s company.
This is the beauty of WEC because we not only enjoy the networking, but we are also enhancing each others’ lives through the friendships we are forging and the everlasting memories we are building together.  Hope you have a wonderful month and I am looking forward to connecting with all of you soon.
Best Regards,
Chadia Ghanem

2016-2017 Theme of the Year

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.
