— Four of our dedicated WNBA-Charlotte board members recently took part in the annual WNBA National Meeting, held this year in Nashville in early June. Over 2 1/2 days of meetings, representatives of all 10 WNBA chapters and the national board of directors discussed ongoing and new initiatives for the organization, including preliminary plans for WNBA’s CENTENNIAL, coming up in 2017.
Our chapter was ably represented by:
Carin Siegfried, National Vice President and President-Elect and our WNBA-Charlotte Founding President
Kristen Knox, our 2013-2015 President
Emily Pearce, our 2013-2015 Vice President
Quinlan Lee, our current Treasurer and National WNBA Pannell Award Committee member
