Sports are everywhere right now; this is the crazy time of year when it seems that no matter where you turn, there’s a sporting event taking place. Or, as the guys in my house might call it, “heaven!” Regardless the sport, there’s something magical that happens when a group of people come together in pursuit of a common goal. There are plenty of star players, but a supportive team dynamic makes it all happen.
The same is true for organizations like APIW. We’re continuing to build a winning team in order to fuel women’s career success in insurance and related fields. As a member of APIW, you have hundreds of women and men standing alongside you in your professional endeavors. And now, we have a unique opportunity to expand our reach toward newer professionals with our recent bylaws change to create an Associate Membership for industry professionals with zero to three years of experience. Thank you to those who took the time to vote!
Additionally, we will be looking for ways to partner and engage with other like-minded organizations to broaden our impact. Now is not the time to be complacent, but rather work toward fostering ties with others to the benefit of women and our beloved APIW. Together, we WILL be heard; together, we WILL make a difference.
Best wishes to each of you for a strong finish to 2017!
