Women of Today Members,

Wow, what a great convention we had in Duluth, MN. Thanks to everyone in the Duluth chapter. It was so great to see everyone again. I look forward to working with the new officers for this upcoming year. I know it will be awesome as we "Parli in the USA."

My name is Michelle Crandall. I’m serving as USWT Parliamentarian & AZ state president. I’ve been a member for 25 years: 23 years in MN, and 2 years in Arizona. We live in Minnesota during the summer and Arizona during the winter. I have been married for 38 years. We have a son Tyler, daughter-in-law and two beautiful grandsons who live about 3 miles from us in Arizona.

My theme is "Parli in the USA." This year I would like to show you how to have fun while keeping your meetings short and on-track. I will have a drawing at the end of the year for those of you that send me a copy of your bylaws & policies. I will have a second drawing for those of you who "Parli in the USA." All you have to do is send me a photo of you and your members having fun as you work on your bylaws & policies.

Fast starts are due August 15. This will help you get off to a great start. You can mail or email it to me. Please pass this on to your chapter parliamentarians. Your parliamentarian fast start:

  • send me a letter of introduction; and
  • your theme and logo, as well as your goals.

Please pass this info to your chapters and district; I’m here for them too. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or just want to say hi. If I don’t have an answer, I will get it for you.

I look forward to working with all of you this up-coming year. Thank you, Michelle Crandall
