As we step into the new year and the start of a new decade, I imagine the many possibilities that it brings for us. While 2020 was unprecedented, I also believe it was transformative. We hunkered down, multi-tasked, complained some, but above all, we collectively rose to the challenge. Our human spirit has endeavored to hope and look forward.
This same hope has helped our chapter survive 2020. We were at the brink of closure, but thanks to our new volunteers, we managed to establish a succession plan. New ideas and energy flowed through the chapter as we explored meaningful ways to expand and collaborate.
In this coming year, we look forward to expanding our mentorship program that was launched last year, in addition to hosting our regular webinars on interesting topics. We have also partnered with University of Texas at Arlington to launch an internship program starting this month.
I look forward to serving the board and the chapter in the coming year. If you are interested in volunteering for our chapter, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay tuned for our programming updates. Wishing each and every one of you a happy and safe new year.
