President’s Message from Vicki Abernathy, CEO Aere Marine Group:

September 2021

It was truly wonderful to enjoy a WEC Luncheon inside in September.  The Lauderdale Yacht Club did a wonderful job with the space, the food, and… with social distancing.

Our speaker from Big (and little) Dog Ranch Rescue was a delight and we were awed by the scope of their operation and commitment to our furry friends. Maybe a few pups will find a new home after our luncheon.  If you’re interested in their operation and couldn’t attend the luncheon, check out their website at

We’re returning to the new normal with a full schedule coming up in October!  Our luncheon will be on October 19th at LYC with a Business Showcase and an exciting speaker.  Please sign up on the website and bring guests to introduce to WEC.

Take a few minutes and check out all the upcoming events and join us for a GEM Luncheon, or Bookies get-together.   Event information is up on the website, and it is updated regularly. Thank you Rodica for your hard work!

We continue to work on great speakers for monthly luncheons as well as GEM Luncheons and Canon Circle events at locations around town sponsored by members.  If you have any ideas, please contact one of the Board members.  We would love your suggestions.

On the membership side, please pay your 2021-2022 dues (if you haven’t yet) so you will be included in our Published Directory.  We’re holding the annual membership cost at $295 (down from $395) through December 2021. Know any accomplished women who would thrive in WEC?  We’re always looking for a few good new friends!

See you in October!


PS: Please reach out to Cindy Fox, our WEC Past President, should you wish to host a Cannon Circle event.
