District LEADS Candidates who are invited to attend this board meeting and take part in the special
CFWC leadership training exercises on Thursday evening, Friday and Saturday mornings.
Leadership Chairman Pam Ament and her team have prepared a three-part workshop with the goal
that these candidates will personally meet the CFWC officers; learn more about Federation to
understand the importance the organization; practice leadership skills and techniques to be ready for
leadership roles in the future; and share this knowledge within their own club and district.
Please see the agenda for times and help your candidate make her meeting reservations.

Resolutions Committee led by Elaine Davis. They will each meet Friday and Saturday mornings as
shown on the meeting agenda.
