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
