Welcome to the AFWA Flagstaff Chapter Website!

Presidents Message for September 2016

Hello, September.  The school year is in full swing and autumn is upon us.  The leaves are starting to turn and the world’s beauty surrounds us.  I do so enjoy this time of year. 

Our chapter has registered to have a booth at The WA Franke College of Business Career Exploration Day on October 7, 2016, 9:30 – 2:30.   Karletta, April and I will be working the booth that day.  Let me know if anyone else would like to participate. 

Karletta has done a wonderful job updating our chapter brochure for the Career Day.  Hopefully moving the meetings to the last Wednesday of the month will allow some of these students to join us. 

Our September speaker will be CW Payne with Heinfeld Meech, with a Department of Labor Update.  See you there.  Remember to RSVP.

 Thank you,

Diana M. Sickels
