Our Members Tell Our Story
Dianne Patterson: IWF has been a constant in my life since 1990 when I was inducted into the first class of the Dallas Forum. For 10 years, I served on that board in nearly every capacity ending my tenure as president during our 10th Anniversary Year, 2000. That decade took me to every national and international conference IWF held throughout the world. In that time, our amazing organization became a never- ending source of friendship and inspiration because of the outstanding members. Now I am retired, and my husband and I live in three cities: Dallas, New York, and San Francisco where I am a member of all the Forums. Read more.
Paying it Forward with Legacy
When I asked IWF Northern California Legacy Foundation board members what Legacy means to them, these were the words they used. As a Legacy Board, we are proud to be conveners and connectors of a community bridging IWF NorCal members and dynamic San Francisco Bay Area leaders. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Legacy Foundation. To celebrate, we will seek to highlight the many ways in which Legacy has furthered its mission--whether through sponsoring IWF Fellows, supporting selected Legacy Partners, or advancing each others' journeys to "pay it forward." Today, I share a tool that I've found useful in my own "pay it forward" journey. Read more. -- Jodi Morris, President, IWF Northern California Legacy Foundation
