President’s Message
July 2014

My name is Erin Cohen and I am the new President of the Greater Raleigh Chapter of NAWBO.  I am the owner of Entrees4U, a personal chef service.

Our new board recently held a very successful retreat, where we determined the theme for this year:  Because Members Matter.  We listened to what our members wanted and starting this year, we will have 2 evening socials (February and April) in place of those 2 monthly luncheons.  They will be purely networking events, held from 5:30-7:30 at Babylon Restaurant in Raleigh.  

The Mentoring Committee is hard at work, planning workshops and book club meetings.  Our Cooking Workshop will be on August 19 in the home of Jean Ehmke, featuring Pam Clark, The Thyme Savor.  Space is limited to 12.   

Our Summer Social is planned for August 28 at Babylon Restaurant.  It will be a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with NAWBO friends after the summer and to bring prospective members to learn about our organization.

Because Members Matter, we want everyone to participate in our events and activities and get involved in roundtable groups and committees.  Our members are the most important part of NAWBO, because without all of you, there would be no NAWBO.

I can be reached at any time to discuss any ideas or questions you may have about our organization.  My number is 919-280-6419 and my email address is ecohen@entrees4u.com.  I look forward to meeting each of you over the coming year.

Erin Cohen, President
