Dates to Remember


from Kathy F.

As my second year on the Board draws to a close, I have been reflecting on what it has meant to me to be a Board member. I have had the opportunity to learn first hand about Zonta's goals and projects. I have had the chance to be on the ground floor in decision-making - learning details and information on which to base those decisions. My circle of friends has increased as I have interacted with the other Board members. Most importantly, I have learned what Zonta is about. I would encourage each of you to consider becoming an officer or a Board member-at-large. The benefits are immeasurable, and the job is extremely rewarding!
