Laurie Livingston reflects on her experience as the 2017 GFWC Virginia participant at GFWC LEADS:

   "GFWC Past President Juanita Bryant's presentation helped me gain a greater understanding and appreciation of GFWC as a whole.  I always worried about suggesting changes within our club because everything was "always done the same way," "why change it if it isn't broken," etc., but Juanita explained that change is constant within the programs and projects of the Federation and we have to be flexible to meet the changes around us.  That small, but effective, statement gave me the confidence to make suggestions within my club and through some of those suggestions, we kept some of the old, but updated them, and introduced new ideas, all of which are proving effective within our club and community."

Sandy Stiltner, GFWC LEADS graduate in 2011, shared the following:

     "I learned a lot; some things that come to my mind are the new Federation friends from all over the country that I still stay in touch with. I learned people in leadership roles react differently and how to diffuse a situation that may arise."

Join other clubwomen from across the nation to strengthen your leadership skills, enhance your knowledge of our organization, and develop lifelong relationships. GFWC LEADS will be held during GFWC Convention on June 26, 2020, in Atlanta, GA. The application submission deadline is January 15, 2020. Guidelines and the application form may be found below or on pages 103S--105S of the GFWC Virginia Yearbook Supplement.
