Well, we had a very interesting year in 2016. I guess the major story was the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.
After watching all the horrible accusations from both parties, it got me thinking about our organization. I thought about the dynamics of the chapter boards and the PTWW board. Each member on a board has different goals and different passions.
With any organization, there are good times and not so good times. Member participation is the life blood for all of us! When you live in a small, rural state like West Virginia, there are challenges that our clubs in larger, more urban situations do not necessarily encounter. We have to deal with members who may drive 30 miles or more to get to a function. Weather becomes much more of a concern when you have to consider not everyone has a four-lane highway available. Then there are the challenges every PT chapter has: how to schedule activities that will draw in members, how to maintain our relevancy, how to meet the needs of our members.
