West Texas Zetas and Amicae:
I am excited that we are quickly approaching our 2020 West Texas State Workshop, which allows for Sorors and Amicae from West Texas to engage in fellowship, empowerment and receive first-class leadership training.
In our New Normal, the 2020 West Texas State Workshop will be held on Saturday, October 10, 2020 virtually via Zoom from 9AM to 4PM.
This one day event is action-packed and filled with leadership training, national programs and initiatives overview, empowerment, and MIP Certification Training.
We have been working hard to ensure you all have an information-filled and fun day.
The workshop sessions will be facilitated by current & past National Officers, the Southern Regional Director, the West Texas State Director, Southern Regional Officers & other workshop professionals.
The sessions have been carefully chosen to get your chapter prepared to implement the strategic plan of the International Grand Basileus, Valerie Hollingsworth-Baker, and the regional goals of our Southern Regional Director, Keisha M. Beasley.
We look forward to seeing each of you and hope you don’t miss this opportunity.
