Our March Meeting, March 2-4, 2012, at the Radisson Hotel, Corning, NY, ably hosted by District VII, is nearly upon us, and will present more opportunities for members to express their ideas and opinions and vote on changes to our bylaws and structure. We will welcome at least 16 young women to our Youth Leadership Program, a program designed to provide high school students with knowledge and experiences that will expose them to opportunities and challenges that they may face in their future.
We have made a lot of changes in the past couple of months and I wanted to make sure everyone was aware of the new features we are offering on the web site now.
Districts will be renamed to Regions and the boundaries redrawn. The name change will take place July 2012.

A joint congressional resolution designated March as Women's History Month. New York State Women, Inc. adopted the Women's History Month Award at the 1990 Board Meeting, in an effort to make our members and their communities more aware of the contributions women have made, and continue to make, throughout history.
Local chapters are urged to record their events with photos, press releases and any notes taken on events and activities. These will be used to prepare their scrapbook for the Annual Women's History Month Competition, with the winning scrapbook to be announced at State Conference.
