GREETINGS FROM THE PRESIDENT
 

Dear WIPA members + friends,

This month, we quietly hit a major milestone, as we’ve officially returned to our pre-pandemic membership numbers. It’s an optimistic turn that demonstrates our collective need for community and progress. 

This milestone could not have been met without the countless hours put in by our Chapter + International leaders. I can’t begin to truly express how grateful I am for everyone’s efforts to get us here.

And, b
elieve it or not, nominations are just around the corner. Stay tuned for more information about that in about a week's time. 

As much as we can celebrate this good news, we also need to be mindful of the challenges in front of us. This week especially, our hearts need to be with our friends and members with WIPA NOLA + the Gulf South, who face significant rebuilding after Hurricane Ida.

With that, I’d like to share just a few of the organizations assisting with the relief efforts.  

Red Cross: Hurricane Relief 
Project Hope 
Rebuilding Together 
Louisiana SPCA 

I’m here if you ever need anything,

Meghan Ely, 2021 WIPA President
