Unlike the current atmosphere surrounding our upcoming national election we had no contentious issues in our recent elections. The current slate of officers have been re-elected and we added two new board members to our slate: Jim Lang and Joe Via. I look forward to working with both to bring forth some new perspectives and ideas to further PWS’s mission of wine education and entertainment. In addition, you may have noticed we added a new Social Media position to our board last year: Kimberly Hawkins is fulfilling that role. I urge you to add PWS to your social media accounts and share our posts with your friends to help us increase exposure. Thanks to Marty Cook’s prompting, a wine info section was also added to the web site. In this section we look forward to interesting and relevant tidbits of facts and knowledge on wine.
I am committed to insuring PWS is focused on serving you, our members, so let us know your thoughts, comments and suggestions; including criticisms. Serving as a PWS officer or board member is truly based on a love of wine and desire to share the experience with others. To that point I will again ask you to invite friends, business associates and family that are interested in or merely curious about wine to one of our events. Sharing the wine experience is one of each event’s unique features and value.
