This is the time of year where we take a long hard look at what we do. We are always interested in improving our services to you and the girls we have the privilege of working with. The best way for us to make changes is to listen to your input about what we do well and what areas where we can provide better service.
We are at a crossroads. We recently have received notice of significant funding cuts for the 2013-2014 year. Part of the funding cuts are due to sequestration, and other cuts I will share more about next week, as we have more information, but it looks like we will be working faster, quicker, smarter next year just to be at the place we are today.
Change is welcome. We can all learn and grow for how to leverage more of what we have to offer to the community. We are partners with you, so we need your assistance in learning how we can be more fiscally efficient and efficient with all our resources.
This summer, we will be inviting you to an evening of light dinner and conversation, just adults. Please come and talk to us. Come with good ideas on how we can be better and illustrate to the community you are in that Girl Scouts change the world, one girl at a time. These events will be starting in June, so stay tuned for one near you.
And, at the end of a good year with the girls, thank you for all you do.
