Outgoing president’s report

Dear Members of Andover Women in Business Club and Readers

AWIB means a lot to me.
The wonderful networking opportunities, meetings and newsletters that Andover Women in Business Club has provided, continue to benefit and support our members, our businesses and our communities.

AWIB has evolved. Our interesting and vibrant Membership has grown, and is continuing to do so.
Our presence in Test Valley and the surrounding areas has been expanded.

We have a brand new, up to date Logo, Website and Cards.

We have continued with the well received, less formal style of doing things.

AWIB now has a very lively presence on Social Media, and in particular a very strong one on Facebook, guess who we have to thank for that! (Well done Andrea)

We have a fabulous event booked for next February! And several months of speakers and venues booked.

I want to thank the management team Liz Scrace, Andrea Barry and Larch Gauld, and all of you who have enabled the management team to bring about the changes, that allow our club to continue to flourish.
The team that has run AWIB is tiny, and I hope that members will continue to support the club and those who work voluntarily and tirelessly for it.

The Andover Women in Business Club is 22 years old this year and it is thanks to its committed members, past and present, that it continues to thrive.

With the updates that have now been activated, and those are planned for the near future – I have to say – It is an excellent time for anyone to a member of AWIB!

Sue Risdale
President 4th Sept 2012 – 2nd Sept 2014
