Dear Berkshire BPW Members and Friends,
I hope you all enjoyed a holiday season filled with celebration, rest, and time spent with loved ones. It is always exciting to start the new year after taking a pause, and with renewed goals and energy to move forward into a productive year. Our board has been working to set up exciting programming for 2023, and I look forward to the exciting opportunities this year has in store for BBPW.
That being said, this new year is not without changes. After a long period of reflection, I have made the difficult decision to step away from my role as President of BBPW. I shared this with the board earlier this month, and we are working to transition responsibilities as seamlessly as possible over the next few weeks.
I have truly enjoyed my time in this position and the opportunity to work with so many dedicated, creative, and talented women within our organization and community.
Some of the circumstances of my current season of life have challenged my ability to give this role the time and resources needed, and the energy that you all deserve in a leader. However, during a personally challenging time, I have been lifted by the strength of our community of supportive women here in BBPW. The kindness, wisdom, and support that members of this community so generously offer one another allows us all to rise, and I am truly grateful for that.
I will continue to be a member, and continue my work with the Scholarship program with the help of the Scholarship Committee. I am appreciative of these opportunities to continue to work with you all and as a part of BBPW in a capacity that is more possible for me right now.
I am so appreciative of all of your support of BBPW, and I am excited for the future of the organization.
