Welcome to the AFWA Flagstaff Chapter Website!

August 2017 Presidents Message

Hi Everyone,

On July 26th, we held our annual planning meeting at Olive Garden. It was a very lively and fun meeting with fresh faces and new ideas. We have super speakers for the next year and are working on some different marketing ideas to increase membership and attendance.  

One of the new ideas was that this year rather than bowling on August 30, we will be at Taverna’s for Happy Hour at 4:00 pm. This will be a chance to talk and get to know one another in a casual atmosphere. Hopefully, many of you will be able to join us.  And due to no CPE being offered, the price will be $15. Looking forward to a great time.   

We are also still trying to recruit members to win some prizes. We need three new members by August 31 to reach our goal, so spread the word about AFWA.  

Please remember to RSVP to Abby Velazquez by Friday, August 25.

Thank you,

Erin Chawick
