It is an honor and a privilege to have been reelected as president at our general assembly in Albuquerque NM in January 2016 to lead the organization for this term. We are working under the theme of "Making a difference through Leadership and Action"
Our important advocacy work continues on our specific platform (posted on our website) with determined focus on achieving ERA (the Equal Rights Amendmentto our constitution), Equal Pay, CEDAW (the United Nations Convention to end all doscrimination agaianst Women) and Equality for Women on all levels. Our longstanding commitment and status with the United Nations highlights the importance of all our achievements in its 70 historical years. We are honored to be an important part of that history along with other organizations on the international platform and value our continued collaboration on the prioritized issues with great dedication.
I am delighted to have our members engaged and participating in our committees and taskforces offering them the exceptional opportunity of access to a platform giving voice to our issues. Together we look forward to a productive year with our collaborative efforts, motivation and the power to make a difference!
