I am excited to be serving as the Washington State Organization DKG President for the 2021-2023 biennium. Susan Fritts, president 2019-2021, took us through a very difficult period for our organization as the COVID pandemic shut down all in-person conferences, meetings and committee work. We had to learn a whole new vocabulary and set of skills to continue our work virtually. Staying connected, particularly with members without technology, was challenging but managed so gracefully by Susan, and with such empathy. Now we are endeavoring to re-envision, re-energize and re-commit ourselves to a new DKG. The organization is seeking to improve and grow to be an even better professional organization while still focused on the values and purposes that we initially committed to when we accepted the invitation to join.
