ERRATA: PWN Global Newsletter Q3 2023 - Never sent

Wind down for Summer!

Dear members and supporters, 

On Thursday 20th July 2023, we hosted the PWN Global AGM. This year was a particularly auspicious one as it sees the end of the mandate for our Board.

We would like to send our deep gratitude to all who have served on the 2021-2023 Board. It has been a mandate with challenges and we are excited to move into the next phase of our journey.

Virgina and I, Nadine, provided our candidature for a second mandate and have been duly elected. We are delighted to be working together on this important mission.

We feel that we have much more to give and creating real change and sustainability is something that takes time. During this second mandate, we are committed to bringing to fruition all our planning and strategising from the previous mandate. We are excited to be continuing our journey as leaders of PWN Global.

You will see that we have restructured the board, adding roles that we believe to be critical to the building of a sustainable network, for example VP Strategic Development, and VP Membership and City Network Development . We are delighted to have filled many of the roles with former city network Presidents who know PWN intimately. Former Presidents of Milan, Lisbon and Istanbul to name but a few. This depth of experience will serve us well. 

We invite you to check out our new PWN Global Board and, please, get in touch with your ideas for improvement. We're really looking forward to collaborating with you. 

Autumn Project

The undertaking of creating a new member platform, associated websites and app is no small feat for a fully resourced corporate entity. As a volunteer-led association with limited resources, we are counting on the goodwill of our volunteers, and coprorate partners to make our dream a reality.

Despite the enormous workload it entails, we are committed to providing you with a new member platform and associated websites. This project is progressing, and we hope to start fully in September. All of our city networks with be engaged in this project so that we can offer you the best membership experience possible as we move our association forward.

More news on this and the associated mobile application will follow, later in the year. It's going to be worth the wait!

If you have knowledge of platform, website or app development, and you'd like to get involved in helping this project, we'd love to hear from you.

We hope you enjoy this edition of the newsletter. If you like the stories we have shared, please feel free to share it with your own networks to help spread the word about the work of PWN Global and the PWN city networks.

In the meantime, we wish you all the best for your Summer holidays (if you are lucky enough to be getting a break!), which we hope will be happy, restful and rejuvenating, whether on your own, with friends or with family. 

Warmest regards from your dedicated Presidents

Virginia and Nadine
