Why I'm ready for this challenge:
10 years ago, a friend invited me to a "Teddy Bear Picnic", sponsored by Quota International of the MS Gulf Coast. I was so impressed by their dedication to children, I wanted to know more. When I learned that their mission also included helping the deaf, hard of hearing (which I suffer from years of singing in a band ), the speech impaired and disadvantaged women, I knew immediately that I had to be a part of this organization!
Those who belong to Quota, know what a wonderful feeling it is to help others in your community and around the world. I've made lifelong friends that I may not have otherwise met.
Fast forward: In 2005, my beautiful Coast was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Almost immediately, my Quota friends from all over the world sent money and Christmas gifts for our children. It was then that I promised, as long as God kept me on this earth, I would dedicate myself to continuing the Quota mission!
In order to be the most effective leader, I started learning from the best - all of the Quota leaders that I have admired over the years. They have tutored me in tradition, encouraged me with their support, and instilled confidence in my ability to make an impact on Quota's South Area. You might say I've "been in training" for this for a decade!
I'm ready to serve Quota on a different level - as one of your leaders. It's an awesome responsibility, and a challenge that I'm ready to take on - head first!
“We can change tomorrow today.”
Our mission to create the Quota of tomorrow is off to a great start - but we have more work ahead of us! I’m ready to take on the challenge and put my marketing experience to work for you!
My Vision for Quota:
We’ve made great strides in updating Quota while maintaining our wonderful traditions of service, friendship and personal development. It must have felt just as exciting to create the Quota of today as whenWanda Frey Joiner met with her friends in 1919 to found our organization. Like these courageous “pioneers,” we must use every resource we have at our disposal (including our own talented members!) and stretch our imaginations to recruit more volunteers.
I see a Quota in which prospective members (and everyone is a prospective member) ask not, “What is Quota?”, but rather “How can I be a part of THAT?” It’s time for creative marketing strategies that not only “sell” what Quota has to offer, but help finance our International programs along the way.
Scroll down to read some of the thoughts and "wishes" I have for Quota. Mind you, they're just suggestions!
I would consider it an honor to serve as your voice in the South Area, and to work with other Quota leaders to continue our path of growth.
I think Wanda would be proud.
