November Chapter Meeting Recap

A heartfelt thank you to San Diego Flowers by Coley, owner, Kristy Weinzimer for opening up her beautiful shop and hosting such a lovely event.  We shopped to our hearts content with the irresistible Holiday items offered at a very generous 30% discount.   The feast provided by member firm Continental Catering was absolutely delicious.  As a special treat, Maria Ayon Continental Catering’s EWI representative joined us.    As the evening progressed those who wanted to participate were able to create their own flower arrangements to bring home and enjoy (with a little help from Kristy’s talented designers).  Thank you to our programs committee Colette Morel ofManpower and Raechel Prochnow of Hilton Garden Inn, for putting this fantastic  event together.  The meeting concluded with Joy Malaise of Promise2kids  and her Fundraising committee presenting the raffle and offering suggestions and ideas for donations to the silent auction for next month’s annual Holiday Hoopla Fundraiser.

July Chapter Meeting- Highlights

I would like to thank all of you for attending our July Chapter meeting at the Hilton Garden Inn- Old Town last night.  Thank you to Colette Morel, Manpower and Elsie Nash, Payroll Vault  for putting together another fantastic event!!

For those of you who were unable to attend, here are a few highlights of the meeting –

Hilton Garden Inn – We were welcomed by Jeremy Bouvet, General Manager of the Hilton Garden Inn – Old Town.  Jeremy welcomed us, told us a little bit about himself and shared with us how the hotel came to be at the current location.

EWISP AwardPat Evans, San Diego Convention Center presented our EWISP award to Ellen Thompson.  Ellen is majoring in astrophysics.  Unfortunately Ellen is already at Berkley and could not attend the meeting, but her proud parents graciously accepted the award on her behalf.

ASIST Award  – Jamie Fleming, Fleming & Associates,  presented our ASIST award to Mercedes Alcoser.  Mercedes has returned to college after a ten year break and will graduate next year.

Special thanks to Pat and Jamie for the time and effort they put into facilitating our scholarship programs and selecting such deserving recipients. Congratulations to our winners Ellen and Mercedes!!!!

The Success of our Scholarship Programs are directly related to our Fundraising program – Thank you to our fundraising committee of Kathy Christmas, Golden Property Management, Holly Stephenson, AT&T and Debbie Wilmot, Parma Management for all of their efforts. And a special thank you to all of you who have donated gifts throughout the year.  Your continued support is greatly appreciated!!!!


  •  Straw ballot votes for the 2017-2018 Board are due by Friday, July 21st.  If you are unable to commit the time to being a Board Member, please consider volunteering for a committee (fundraising, membership, programs, etc.)  This is a wonderful way to contribute to our Chapter’s success!
  • Next month’s meeting on Aug 22nd at Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation will be our big fundraiser.  Please consider a sponsorship, bring additional guests, donating your chapter fee if you cannot attend or more importantly selling and buying raffle tickets for the cruise for 2 on Holland America.  Every little bit helps, we have a goal of $7,000 and if we put all our efforts together, I know we can make it!!
  • Chapter Awards recognizing our rising star, spirt and firm will also be presented at next month’s meeting.

I want to thank everyone at the meeting for the support and encouragement you gave me filling in for our incredible President Vanessa.

June Chapter Meeting- Highlights

Thank you for attending our June chapter meeting at Hilton Garden Inn- Downtown/Bayside, and of course big thanks to our Programs Directors, Colette Morel and Elsie Nash, for another fantastic event.

If you weren’t able to join us, here are a few highlights:

Guest speaker: Deputy District Attorney, Wendy L. Patrick, Ph.D., spoke about the RED FLAGS that we should pay attention to impressions and details when dealing with co-workers, acquaintances, and even first dates.  It was really interesting to see how her office is able to dig deeper into a person, just by the information they share… or rather don’t share about themselves.  If you bought a book and need to send a check, please send check for $27 to: Wendy L. Patrick, 330 W. Broadway, Suite #1020, San Diego, CA. 92101

Scrapbook Heaven: Some of our Past Presidents brought their scrap books and as someone who JUST created one for Karen Spencer, I am so glad I didn’t see them in advance or I never probably would have handed it over.  I wish you could have seen Anita Tindall strut in with her dining- room- table- sized- scrap book, full of pride, and I don’t blame her… it’s pretty fantastic. The photos of the shoulder pads and lipstick were awesome, but the history is just priceless.  I will ask Karen to bring hers to the July meeting and if you have any photos or keepsakes from her year as president that you would like to add, feel free to bring them.

Soaps & Scents: Lynette Clark of new member firm, Soaps & Scents shared a little more about herself and her products.  She also brought some samples… I now I have a delicious smelling cucumber-melon bar of soap in my bathroom, and it’s almost too lovely to use!  Get to know a little more about Soaps & Scents at: www.soapsandscents.com, and be sure to say hi to Lynette next month!

August Fundraiser:  It’s that time of year where it’s “all hands on deck”, which is especially fitting since our BIG PRIZE this year is a 7-Day cruise for 2 aboard the Holland America Line to Alaska, the Caribbean, Mexico or Canada/New England.  We need your help selling these tickets… including selling them to yourself.  The funds raised help chapter initiatives, including our EWISP and ASIST Scholarship.  Plus, buying and selling these tickets makes you look strong and smart. Don’t ask me how, it’s just science. 

Please reach out to Kathy Christmas, kathy@gpmsandiego.com or Holly Stephenson, hs1269@att.com about getting some tickets. Also, be on the lookout for some more information on sponsorships and how you can help make this fundraiser a big success.  Please note the date is the 4th Tuesday, August 22, so please mark your calendars.

LCAM: Still thinking about the annual Leadership Conference and Annual Meeting (LCAM)? Take a look at the justification tool kit, attached.  It might help you decide on the expense or it might arm you with some more information when you ask your company to support you.

EWISP & ASIST: Gigantic thanks go to Pat Evans, (EWISP) and Jamie Fleming, (ASIST) and their committees, for their contribution to selecting our scholarship winners.  You will get to hear more and meet both of them in July, when they are awarded.

Past Presidents:  We appreciate our Past Presidents very much… and last night we got to say thank you to those who were in attendance. Schedule changes kept many, including, Patti, Besse, Pat, and Debbie from attending, but I assure you, you were with us in spirit!
