I was very pleased with our August
meeng. I hope I will not be as nervous in September. However, we
have so many things going on right
now I’m afraid I’ll forget something
important. So, I’m going to make a
list for us all.
As I sit at my computer wring this
message, I realize I have an empness
in my heart. HOP has just lost another
beloved member of our chapter.
Carolyn Huggins, to me, was sunshine.
She always had a smile on her face and
joy in her heart. I can only hope that
someday the same can be said about
me. I realize I have way too many pity
pares for myself, and Carolyn’s service
brought that to the forefront of my
mind. We, as ABWA members, need to
remember we are strong women. We
are empowered women and we can
conquer the world if we need to. There
is no need for us to ever feel less.

August 1, 2013, Meeting Minutes
The August 1, 2013, Heart of the Piedmont Chapter Meeting was held at the Sheraton Four Seasons. President Angela Greene called the
meeting to order at 6:30pm and led the group in the Invocation. Present were 28 members present and 3 guests: Donna Maynard, Loretta
Dease, and Elsie Bell. Members then introduced themselves with the question: “What is one of your goals for ABWA this new year?”
During announcements, it was mentioned that Carolyn Huggins was experiencing health problems; she’s lost about 20 lbs. and was not
present at our last meeting or at this meeting. Please send her a card.
Florence Adams also is experiencing health problems. A card was passed around for members to sign.
Jo Ann Marsh was pleased to share that she received a cancer-free report from her doctor! Also, Kathleen Steed announced that her
granddaughter’s husband (they were married May 10 th) was hit by a drunk driver and air-lifted to a hospital. Please keep them in your
President Angela Greene then made a few additional announcements:
President Angela Greene mentioned how honored she was to be our new chapter president and will do everything in her power to
make us proud of her and will strive to end meetings in a timely manner.
The 2013-2014 Committees List was passed around. President Angela Greene asked everyone to please look over the Committee
Sign-Up Sheet. If you have not signed up for a committee yet, please see where you would be a good fit and add your name to
that committee and contact the committee chair to let her know of your interest.
She also reminded everyone to fill out their member interest surveys on WIN. We have to have a certain percentage completed to
qualify for Best Practices. Plus, it is a good planning tool for the upcoming ABWA year. So far we have 10 members who have
completed it and 35 who have not. If you are one of the 35, please take the survey on WIN. It only takes about 10 minutes.
If you are interested in participating in the Secret Sister activity, please fill out the Secret Sister form. It will be collected at the end
of the meeting and new secret sisters will be selected.
Terry Howard introduced our guest speaker, Leona La Perriere - CEO/Founder of HEAR APPLAUSE!
Leadership & Coaching. Leona is a member of our very own chapter! Her topic: “Reframe, Redo, Recover – And...It’s Not About Decorating!”
Leona shared different perspectives on how we communicate and tips on how we can become more effective with our communication to get the results we are wanting. Here’s to all of us as we “Hear Applause” putting our new communication skills into practice.
President Angela Greene asked if there were any corrections to the July minutes. Toby Page made a motion to approve the minutes and
Rachel Hoover seconded it. The membership approved the minutes. The Treasurer’s report was then presented. There were a few discrepancies that needed to be addressed; the report is to be adjusted and filed for audit. The Audit Committee (Sandra Tincher and Colleen
Mitchell) reported that the audit report was in order and the books were easy to examine. All information was found to be in order.
Program: Chair Terry Howard mentioned that Sharon Godbee will speak about ABWA educational opportunities at the next meeting.
Sharon is Chair of the Professional Development Committee and will coordinate with the program committee for programs/speakers for
the remainder of the year.
Fundraising: The new Fundraising Committee co-chairs are Sandy Tincher and Catherine Cress. There was discussion about the need
to begin our nut fundraiser and to check with Bessie Sparks on last year’s procedure, location, etc., to make this year’s fundraising equally
as successful. There was also discussion about other fundraising opportunities that might be considered.
Hospitality: Our birthdays for this month are: Mary Sloane on August 7 and Sharon Godbee and Karen McCray on August 31. Happy
Birthday, ladies!
Newsletter: Robin Necci advised that the newsletter deadline will be August 28, 2013.
President Angela Greene then congratulated the new committee chairs and co-chairs and invited members to sign up for a committee if
they had not already done so and encouraged the committees to meet as early as possible to set their goals for this coming year.

August 1, 2013, Meeting Minutes—Continued
President Angela Greene referred to her letter in our newsletter, The Pulse, and explained her goals for the chapter. #1: Achieve Level 1 Best Practices! One of the major goals is to increase membership by 10 new members. We need to invest in our group. Fundraising, meeting, and greeting new members, educating our visitors about the benefits of ABWA are top on the list. Our chapter is a safe
place for our members to grow professionally and personally. Support, encouragement and positive reinforcement is paramount to our
success. Sharon Godbee motioned to adopt the goals; Rhonda Blue seconded the motion. Membership approved the goals.
Review of 2013-2014 Standing Rules: same as last year except for the dates. Sharon Godbee made a motion to change #10: and/or a
district or national conference. Our chapter will set aside an amount in the budget for this. Barbara Walters motioned to adopt this
change; Robin Necci seconded; membership passed the motion.
Discussions on the proposed budget: Sharon Godbee spoke about thinking over conversations from last year – she proposed an increase in the scholarship from $1,000 to $2,000; we should check to see what the regulations are and check on our 501(c)3 status –
the proposed budget was tabled until next meeting. Toby Page and Catherine Cress suggested to check on gross receipts; if less than
$50,000, it needs to be filed by December 15, 2013. We are in good standing on our taxes. We need to check on our administration
fee $100 – $115 with the fundraiser.
Toby Page’s campaign funds are in a line item on the budget, so any fundraisers don’t need to be budgeted for. There should be no
campaign expenses in the chapter checkbook.
Due to some outstanding questions, approval of the budget will be tabled until the next meeting.
We are in need of contributions for the Purse-onality fundraiser for the 2013 National Women’s Leadership Conference in Little Rock,
AR, on October 3 – 5. See Catherine Cress or Karen Kirkman if you have a donation for purse. The theme for this year is possibly:
The Gems of North Carolina.
Toby Page noted there is still time to register for the 2013 National Women’s Leadership Conference; try to get a room since they are
filling up quickly. At least book it, because it can be cancelled if needed. 12 members of our chapter are currently attending.
Remember to mark your calendar for the 2013 ABW Day Weekend celebration activities—September 14: famous covered dish dinner
and entertainment event at Hinshaw United Methodist Church and September 15: “Inspire and Be Inspired in ABWA” at Embassy
Suites of Greensboro. Toby Page is completing details for the Sunday luncheon at the Embassy Suites. Catherine Cress is generously offering her house as a place for visiting board members to stay. Many of our chapter members offered to help Catherine prepare
her house for this event.
Next PTAC meeting is August 5 at Joseph’s Restaurant at Sheraton Four Seasons. The program is on fundraising. Sharon Godbee
explained PTAC - 9 chapters comprise the council which meets every other month.
The Secret Sister forms were collected and Secret Sisters drawn from the “hat.” Jo Ann Marsh drew for Robin Crosier, and Sharon
Godbee drew for Karen McCray.
Toby Page shared her newest fundraiser: The “No Dinner Dinner.” Very easy to participate! However, if you should decide to share,
please do not post on social media sites.
Leona La Perriere mentioned that her book: “HEAR APPLAUSE! Choosing Success in 12 Steps or Less” will be for sale after the
meeting. 10% of the sales will go back to our chapter. Her book will also be available after this month’s meeting for $20.
There being no other business or announcements, President Angela Greene led the membership in the benediction, then adjourned
the meeting at 8:30pm.

Executive Board Meeting Minutes
August 26, 2013
The Executive Board met at Catherine Cress’s ABWA House at 5:30pm. Present were Angela Greene, Karen Kirkman,
Gwen Taylor, Leona La Perriere, and Robin Necci.
The following was discussed:
September introduction question: What was your favorite subject in school?
The next board meeting will be on Monday, September 30, at 5:30pm at Catherine Cress’s ABWA house.
We have 2 new members to install at the September meeting: Elsie Bell and Donna Maynard. Angela will contact
them to be sure they will be attending and will notify Bessie Sparks of their attendance so that flowers will be provided to them during the installation ceremony. Angela will contact Toby Page to get her recent member installation
ceremony to use.
The Fall Fashion Pallooza hosted by the Granite City Chapter from Mt. Airy was attended by Angela Greene, Karen
Kirkman, and Yvonne King (Forsyth).
Discussion on ABW Day Weekend Celebration activities include:
Ask Toby Page if she has permission to post about this day – on WIN for District 4 – so, Angela will plan for
about 100 attendees.
Angela Greene, as co-chair, will take care of other weekend activities at Embassy Suites.
PTAC has a council site on WIN. Sandra Tincher is in charge. Executive Board members should contact her to be
included on this team.
Robin Necci collected the signatures of the Executive Board members for the newsletter.
Discussion from Gwen Taylor about the signature card for the checking account and debit card for new executive
committee members Angela Greene and Gwen Taylor. Gwen recommended we need to change the name and address on the debit card. Angela will need minutes of the last meeting as proof of her presidency and Gwen as treasurer.
Discussion on an item on the budget approval: Gwen will alter the budget to $2,200 for two scholarships rather than
one. Possibilities for donations in honor of Carolyn Huggins as a designee, and, there is still the scholarship in honor
of Cynthia Chivers. Gwen will add this amount to the income column as a fundraiser. Later, this may be known as a
Memorial Scholarship in memory of deceased members.
A recap from the August meeting: Discussion of alterations to the Standing Rule #11: The chapter will pay the registration in advance for the President, Top 10 and/or Woman of the Year and also the luncheon costs for the Top 10
and Woman of the Year at National Conference if they are attending and if funds allow. Our chapter has $7,500
budgeted for National and Regional Conferences (Roanoke) -- $5,500 for National and $2,000 for Roanoke for the
2013-14 chapter year.
Member Interest Survey (MIS) – only 15 members have taken this survey. Angela will stress the importance of this
at the September meeting.

Went to be with her Heavenly Father Wednesday, August 21, 2013, at the
Hospice House of the Piedmont.
She was born June 3, 1940 in High Point to George and Helen Myers

to many. Carolyn brought joy and laughter to all she met. Her presence will
be truly missed. She was a blessing to her coworkers, at Cornerstone Surgery friends, and
the staff of doctors since its inception.
We will miss you dearly, Carolyn!
You will always be one of
our treasured jewels.

Inspire and be inspired with ABWA! It’s amazing the influence that one person can bring to a community. One fired-up person can create results beyond

your own world when you become more involved with ABWA and begin to inspire—and be inspired by—your fellow members, your league, and your community.
Become an inspiration leader in your Association and you could: provide a fellow member with the motivation to get involved with a local league; improve your

the local and national levels; assist your local league in recruiting and retaining
new members. With committed members like you creating this ripple effect, our
