Happy New Year!

As we kick-off a new decade, I want to express our gratitude to all of our member organizations and to our 2019 FHPW Board of Directors for all of their amazing accomplishments last year.

We want to start of this year off by Encouraging all of our member organizations to be sure all of their members know about the great Networking opportunities at our fabulous FHPW quarterly meetings. We are also looking forward to honoring nominees from each member organization with Recognition as Women of Excellence at our wonderful gala in September. Finally, we want to help your member organization and the Federation enjoy tremendous Growth in membership and impact to benefit professional women throughout the Houston area.

Hey, that sounds like a great theme for my presidential year: Encouraging Networking, Recognition and Growth (ENRG)!
