Spring 2022

The Fullerton Chapter planned to host the SW Section Winter Workshop at Buena Park, CA on January 29, 2022. It was to be our 2nd hybrid meeting instead of our 5th virtual meeting.

Rising risk levels, due to the COVID-19 Omicron variant, compelled the SWS Board of Directors to convert the Winter Workshop into a virtual workshop.

There were 61 virtual attendees at the 2022 Winter Workshop. Topics were chosen to help us all understand how to manage and participate in the section and chapter activities. The presenters included Julie Hall-den Boer, Arkansas Chapter, who shared her thoughts on the 99s Mission Statement.

Thank you, Fullerton Chapter, Claudia Maciel, Robin Gartman and Pat Gregory for your contributions in making the virtual Winter Workshop a success.
