I am honoured to take
up the role of President, BPW Galway for 2016 and I would like to take this
opportunity to acknowledge the fantastic work that has been done by presidents
before me, each one a commensurate ambassador for BPW serving with tireless energy
and making real and lasting connections with clubs across Ireland and Europe.
Each president brings their own perspective and experience to bear on the role and for me this year will focus on continuing to steady the ship while laying the groundwork for BPW Galway hosting the BPW European Congress in 2019. With that in mind I will be travelling to Zurich in September of this year, along with a number of other BPW Ireland members, to accept the flag of the European Conference on behalf of the Galway club. This will be a proud moment for BPW Galway and one which I am honoured to be a part of.
Obviously, 2016 is also a very important year in terms of Irish history with the 100th anniversary of the Easter Rising in April. Women played an important part in the struggle for independence in this country and BPW Galway will be remembering this during the year through its various events.
Dates for your diary for 2016 are listed on the Programme of Events which is available here on the website, and for information about joining BPW Galway please email firstname.lastname@example.org
I am really looking forward to my time as club president for 2016 and I wish all of our members and friends a happy and prosperous 2016.
President BPW Galway
