The Minutes of the September 20, 2010 meeting were approved with minor corrections. 

Stephanie reminded the group of Women’s History Month in March of 2011.  The theme is: “Our History is Our Strength.”  Kathy suggested we look for a keynote speaker for the Theo Kalikow Award/POWA Award Ceremony from the field of science or psychology – two areas that are many times overlooked.

 There is a meeting today at 3 pm of the committee planning the Young Women’s Conference to be held here in March 2011 for girls age 14-18.

Stephanie then suggested we break up into our groups and brainstorm ideas and suggestions. 

 Here is the list of groups and members:

Theo Kalikow Award/POWA Award Ceremony:    Anne Lebreche, Alice O’Connor and Mary Washburn

Family Orientated Policy and Practices:     Nancy Betchart, Cresta LaMontagne, John C. Clark, Kathy Tardiff and Alice O’Connor

The members present at this meeting had very productive group meetings.
