Laura Gaylord
Programming Vice President

Hello USWT members, my name is Laura Gaylord, I have been a member of the New Ulm Women of Today since April of 2005.  I have held many offices at various levels; local officer, district officer, MNWT executive council member, MNWT Internal Programming Vice President, MNWT state president and USWT health and wellness program manager.  Through them all I have always had a passion for programming and this WT year I am very excited to be serving as your 2017-2018 USWT Programming Vice President with the theme of “Programming Power and You”.

I am excited to also introduce the other members of the USWT programming team, Domestic Violence Awareness (DVA) manager Terri Hebda from Illinois, Health and Wellness (H&W) manager Samantha Mongold from Arizona.  Currently we are still looking for the amazing individual who would like to join our team as the Personal Development / STEP manager.

Getting your WT year off to a great start is the power to a fantastic year, as such don’t forget to complete your programming fast start and return to me by August 15, 2017.  The link to the form is found on this USWT programming page and can also be found in the book of forms and my state information packet.

The programming team will be sending out a “Programming Stars” newsletter each trimester and are asking and encouraging anyone to submit an article to be included.  These articles could include project ideas, events, certification ideas, community connections or tips.  If you would like to be a part of the first trimester newsletter please submit to me by Wednesday July 26, 2017 at

Check out the new project report library link to find the new project report form and guidelines and submit them to me as the USWT PVP.  This will be a great tool to share those outstanding programming projects.

In friendship,
