WALDE News You Can Use!
March 2018

All of us who attended IGNITE: Minneapolis 2018 had a worthwhile and enjoyable time. For all of you who participated, thank you. For those that did not make it to Minneapolis, next year’s IGNITE:North Texas 2019 will be in Grapevine, and should not be missed.

At IGNITE, we had a very productive chapter meeting - my first as WALDE President. I received many compliments on the way I ran the meeting. I am certain that the success of the meeting was due to (a) opening the bar early and (b) keeping my part short. I intend to continue these dual themes. We came up with several great ideas, and we had a lot of fun.

Scholarships to IGNITE 2019 
The chapter voted unanimously to solicit scholarships from our members to next year’s IGNITE: North Texas 2019. To encourage our donations, WALDE will match donations up to $1,600, potentially allowing us to fund eight $400 scholarships to next year’s meeting if we raise $1,600 from our members. If we each donate $50, we will raise more than enough to fund the eight scholarships.

Attending IGNITE is so valuable. We want as many people to be part of it as possible regardless of their financial situation.

You can give either online or by check by typing “WALDE Scholarship” in the public recognition line or writing it in the note line on your check. Donations received before April 15 will add to an additional matching grant for ALDE. Your money can do double-double duty if received by April 15!

Save the Date - October 23, 2018, in Milwaukee
We will be having an all-day chapter educational event, co-hosted by the Chicago Chapter of ALDE and WALDE on October 23 at the Four Points Sheraton near the Milwaukee airport. We need four people from WALDE to join me in helping to plan this event. Please let me know if you can help in making this educational and fun event a reality.

WALDE Planning Meeting 
Several of you said you would like to be part of planning WALDE’s next year. Please let me know if you would like to be part of a Zoom meeting or conference call in late April or early May.

Lastly, your work to raise funds to do so many worthy things inspires me. It is clear that God is using your efforts to achieve God’s purposes in our time.
