親愛的姐妹們大家好!!

輪到我要來接第30屆的會長,實在很感榮幸。這29年來,由於所有姐妹們的參與,前總會長,分會長,區理事們,小組長們無遺的付出和貢獻。造就今天NATWA 成為北美洲台美人最大最美的組織。在在值得我們歡喜,慶幸。我也要為新接任務的總會副會長,各分會長,區理事,小組長們,獻上我衷心的感謝。希望這新的一年,我們能互相鼓勵,互相包容,一起來為NATWA 打拼。

今年的主題是 “活出美好,面對挑戰。”活在當下的世界,我們真的不知道,下一分鐘有什麼事會,發生在妳我身上。婦女會的會員也都進入退休或面臨退休的階段。這個嬰兒潮世代,雖然讓我們享受了最好的物質和高科技,卻也趨使我們去面對每天不預期的苦難。!!如何面對生活中的挑戰,我們如何喜樂的活出每一天。把我們有生之年,更健康,更有意義的活出來。讓我們大家一起,有氣質的慢慢老去。

今年10月19-23 日的年中理事會,將在西雅圖舉行。除了開會,人才訓練外,也有二日的會後旅遊。包栝Mt. Rainier, Boeing Factory....等景點。請所有理事能撥空來參加。也歡迎新舊會員來見習。我們都知道,西雅圖是目前美國十大最美的城市之一。也是不少年輕人響往的地方。三個星期前,我受邀去參加她們的年會,同時去看年中會的地點。她們雖然不是我們的分會,但是也都竭誠歡迎,會盡量支持。

明年4/19-4/25的年會,已經訂好在LAX 附近的Renaissance Hotel 。最近剛接“ 政經看民視” 的主播,李晶玉女士的回复,她將是我們年會的主講員。我同時也接洽其他講員,針對目前大家生活所需,有繼續更好的學習。會後旅遊,四天三夜,請了世界級的領導為我們籌劃。要去羚羊谷,順遊Las  Vegas, 馬蹄灣,包偉湖,Zion National Park, Grand Canyon。已經有很好的回響。希望可以帶給大家一個難忘的30週年年會。謝謝大家給我這個機會學習,很高興能與大家一起共事。祝福妳們 !!!

 

總會長  黃美琇 敬上
NATWA  2017-2018

Dear NATWA sisters:

It is my pleasure and honor to serve as the 30th president of NATWA.  As you all know, without your participation, the contribution of all past presidents, local chapter presidents, district boards and leaders of 23 small groups, NATWA would not have grown into the largest and nicest organization among all of the Taiwanese communities in the North America. Let's continue working together by encouraging each other, and respecting the individual difference for the year to come.

The theme for 2017-2018 is " Face Challenges, Live Better." Nowadays we don't really know what is going to happen to you or me the next moment. Most of our members either have retired or expect to retire soon. In this baby boomers era, though we enjoy the best materialistic life with the convenience of many high-tech gadgets, we are also facing unpredictable challenges daily. How to face challenges and live with joy daily so that we have a healthier and more meaningful life for the rest of our time becomes an important issue of our concern. Let's all grow old graciously together.

The mid-term board meeting in October will be held at Seattle Marriott Airport Hotel. After meeting and leadership training, we will have a two days tour of Mt. Rainier, Boeing Plant and other good interesting places. All Board Members please make it , new members of NATWA  are welcome. Seattle is one of the 10 most beautiful cities in America, and has been attracted lots of young people to move to.   

Our annual convention in April 2018 will be held at the LAX Renaissance Hotel. I am contacting the potential keynote speakers, and am trying to arrange the program to fit the need of our NATWA members. Hopefully it will be an unforgettable convention to all of us. The post meeting tour has been arranged, including Las Vegas, Zion National Park, Antelope, Lake Powell... It will take 4 days, at a price more than reasonable. Our planner is a world class professional. You will for sure regret if you miss it.  Thanks for giving me this opportunity to learn and will be a pleasure to work with you all this coming year.
