Maryland Women's Heritage Center - Summer 2018
Since its inception, The Center has been blessed with passionate, committed leaders who have worked tirelessly not only to launch MWHC, but also to continue to move it forward, often weathering various challenges along the way.
Frances Hughes Glendening
As many of you are aware, my extended term as MWHC President came to a close on June 30th. MWHC has experienced many transitions during my twelve-year tenure as President, and I value the relationships, opportunities and challenges afforded to me throughout this time. My connection with the organization will continue in the role of immediate past president as part of the Board of Directors, and as a continuing supporter and member.
Our new president, Maria Johnson Darby, is a talented, energetic leader. I have every confidence that with strong, active support from the Executive Committee and Board of Directors, her leadership will move MWHC to the next level of development. Although we continue to face some challenges, the entire leadership team will keep us on a productive path, preserving the past, understanding the present and shaping the future for all Maryland women and girls.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve as MWHC President. It truly has been an honor and a privilege to work with an extraordinary Executive Committee and many outstanding board members throughout these years. I shall forever cherish the beautiful retirement gift, an engraved Salisbury Pewter bowl. It has an honored place in my home and will bring warm thoughts of my tenure with MWHC for many years to come.
Importantly, I am at a loss to express the depth of my appreciation to Diana Bailey, our Executive Director, and Judi Williams, who provides vital administrative support. They literally run the organization on a daily basis and their dedication is unsurpassed.
Finally, I challenge everyone to become actively engaged with MWHC and to recruit others as well. There are a number of ways to participate in the organization, such as serving on the Board of Directors, a working committee or specific project. Additionally, I encourage you to either become a member of the organization or renew your current membership. Remember, the active engagement of many is crucial for the organization to move to the next level and thrive. Please contact Diana Bailey, email@example.com , to discuss how you can best contribute your time and talent to support MWHC in the coming years.
