December President's Message
The hustle and bustle of the holiday is upon us. As business owners, we are challenged to add more to our schedules without skipping a beat. We do it. We make it happen because that is what we do.
NAWBO San Antonio is blessed to have great Corporate Partners, like North Park Lexus who hosted our Holiday Social. It was a beautiful evening that was well attended by our members, partners, families, and friends. We wish to thank North Park Lexus for their generosity in hosting such a lovely event. The Youth Orchestra of San Antonio (YOSA) provided the entertainment for the evening, and their talents added so much to the evening. Thank you, YOSA, for the lovely sounds of the season.
As part of NAWBO–San Antonio’s mission to support our community, we selected the Roy Mass Youth Alternative Program to donate to this year. We collected over $1,000.00 for this great program at the Holiday Social. Each person who donated had his/her name go into a drawing for a weekend in a Lexus LS. North Park Lexus gave out not one weekend, but two. The lucky winners were Bea Bodeau with Amegy Bank and Peggy Brown Owner of Generations Moving & Transition Services.
We wish to thank you, our NAWBO Members, Corporate Partners, Executive Member Partners, families, and friends for your support and time. You are what make NAWBO–San Antonio great, and we are very appreciative of you.
Nancy Victor, NAWBO–SA president elect and president of HelpMe!!TechTeam; Melanie Kirk, NAWBO Entrepreneurial Connections—Fostering the Entrepreneurial Dream chair and partner/owner of ATKG CPAs; Kim Ford, NAWBO–SA member/past treasurer and partner/owner of Hill & Ford CPAs; and Renee Watson, manager of the Small Minority Women Business Enterprise Program (SMWBE/DBE) for Bexar County were invited to the White House for a White House Business Council Meeting about the Fiscal Cliff on Thursday, Dec. 6, in DC. Check out Nancy’s Public Policy update. There are some important dates and events coming up you will not want to miss. The year 2013 will prove to be a busy and important time in Public Policy for NAWBO–San Antonio.
We are very excited with the opportunities that are coming to NAWBO–San Antonio. I would like to encourage each of you to participate in some way. It may be writing a letter to our lawmakers, listening to a webinar, or volunteering to participate on the Public Policy Committee. Let us know what your interest level is, and we will assist you in finding the right match for your interest and time.
If you have to travel during the holiday, please be safe. Enjoy your time with family and friends. Take time to make magic happen. It is very simple to do. Watch for the opportunity to say a kind word, do a kind deed, and give to someone something they did not expect; when you do this, watch for the magic to happen. Your heart will feel it and your spirit will be lifted.
May you have a very Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy, and successful New Year!
Patsy Foxworth, President
