Dean’s Message for Summer
Welcome to summer, everyone! Even in our changeable Pacific Northwest, it seems the season has turned and we can enjoy sunshine and time outdoors. June is also the end of most fiscal years, and with that, boards and officers shuffle members. On June 7th, we had the annual installation of officers for the Guild's next year. I am honored to be your Dean for 2019-2020, and I want to thank everyone who participated in and helped with the event at University Presbyterian, where we were welcomed by Hanna Byun.
I also want to thank those who have finished their terms on the board, and those who are continuing, and to welcome new board members Brenda Durden and Matthew Samalak. And most of all, I want to thank out-going Dean Robert Condie. He has been a most effective, gracious, and wise leader to us—he will be a hard act to follow!
I hope that as the new program year begins, you will take a moment to drop me a line and let me know your thoughts about the Guild—what would you like to see happen? I welcome your ideas.
Jo Baim, Chapter Dean
