Fun News From The January Membership Meeting

Posted by Susan Kingsley, Thursday, January 24th, 2013 @ 3:48pm


    Where  can you get better business advice than from your WEC friends?

    Attendees at the January luncheon will agree: Nowhere!


    This month we spiced things up a bit with table talk. Members and guests drew a card to discover their designated table. Individuals at each table gave their “two cents” about a business related question. Then we all benefited from a table-by-table report back.


    Member comments: WOW, this was fun and different. . . . I had a chance to get to know more members. . . . Loved it. . . . Let’s do it again.


    Thanks to all who so generously shared business advice with their WEC friends.

    It doesn’t get much better than that.

A Power Of Giving

Posted by Kimball Stadler, Wednesday, November 28th, 2012 @ 10:06am

  • Kathleen Ryan put together a wonderful recap of the impressive donations our WEC Sisters have contributed throughout the years.  We wanted to share this information with everyone.  Ladies, we really have made a difference in the lives of others. Thanks to each of you for your kindness and generousity:

    WEC and Community Involvement
    by Kathleen Ryan

    This holiday season is a time to reflect on WEC’s tradition of giving back to our Community.   As a Club WEC has a history of helping others through scholarship, mentoring and, supporting PACE, our named charity.


    * Women Empowering Women (WEW) Scholarship   Two $2,500 scholarships on an annual basis to women entering or reentering college to further their career as entrepreneurs, senior managers and executives.


    * New Tradition of taking up a collection to help feed the hungry at our November luncheon.

       In 2010 and 2011, WEC members contributed $1,600 for Lifenet for Families and those members who volunteered in the early hours at Sawgrass Mall on Black Friday raised another $7,000.  In total, WEC members raised a total of $8,600 to help feed hungry families in our community.

    * Support for PACE Center for Girls Broward-WEC’s named charity.

    Since December 2007, WEC has contributed $19,740 to support the girls at PACE Broward, has sponsored over 125 girls as guests at our monthly meetings,has collected gifts for the girls at our last 4 holiday parties, and WEC members have attended PACE special events and volunteered at the Center.


     WEC is a group of professional women who are generous in giving back to the community and empowering other women and girls, giving them tools that will bring them success in their careers.

Get SOCIAL with the WEC!
