Welcome to the AFWA Flagstaff Chapter Website!

July 2017 Presidents Message

Hi Everyone,

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far.  I am looking forward to a productive year working with all of you.  On July 26, we will hold our annual planning meeting at Olive Garden.  Please plan on attending and bringing your ideas for speaker topics, marketing, fun activities and anything else you would like to discuss.  This is a chance to make the upcoming AFWA year fun and rewarding.  And due to no CPE being offered in July, the price will be $15 just to cover the cost of lunch.

Last month, Kathryn Mahady of Aspey, Watkins & Diesel, PLLC gave us an overview of different areas of law with a judgment-free Q&A.  As is usually the case, it was a very informative and interesting meeting.  August is usually our fun meeting.  At the planning meeting, we can see if anyone has thoughts on what we could do.          

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.  

Hope to see many of you at the planning meeting. 

Please remember to RSVP to Abby Velazquez by Friday, July 21.

Thank you,

Erin Chawick
