Prose from the Pres, Lori Payne
A season of gratitude and oh, do I have so much to be thankful for! Seven of us
safely travelled to our Region 6’s Annual Planning Conference in Overland Park.
As our hostess, Bev Sauerwein designed an agenda well worth our trip! We
made and renewed friendships with other NAWIC members in our region; we
shared ideas and successes; and we gained information and relationships which
we have brought back to use as valuable resources in our Wichita chapter.

I am also thankful for the motivation that so many of you have shared with me
within our NAWIC group here in Wichita. Linda Geesaman has stepped up to the
Vice Presidency and has also made great strides in developing our CAD
competition for this year; Linda Walton is in the process of finalizing our budget;
Jandrea Blumanhourst and Jennifer O’Bar have volunteered to arrange our
meetings and tours; June Huie has accepted responsibility for our website; Vicki
Tucker has “asked” if she could be our WIC Week chair; Edi Clark is working
diligently in planning our Block Kids competition; and Sue Gleason has an
excellent report to share about our Wreath sales! Thank you to all for your
enthusiasm and willingness to serve our great chapter!

We do still need chairs for the golf tournament next summer. Andrea Cole has
agreed to take charge of the registration gift bags for the players. We can
separate out additional duties so that it isn’t too much for any one person. Please
step forward if you would like to be involved!!

Helping Our NAWIC Sisters
After Superstorm Sandy
As you may know, our NAWIC Chapters on the
east coast have been affected by Superstorm
Sandy. The Gr. New York Long Island Chapter
was hit the hardest. Some of them lost their
homes and many of them are still without power
and running water.
We will be taking up a collection at the
Membership Meeting on Tuesday, November
27th in an effort to help them in any way
possible!
We will take the monetary donations and
purchase several Visa gift cards to send their way.
Please contribute what you can. If you are not
able to attend the meeting but would still like to
donate, please contact Lori Payne.

2012 Region Six Annual
Planning Conference
Region Six’s Annual Planning Conference was held
October 26-27 in Overland Park, Kansas. The Gr.
Wichita, Kansas chapter was well represented at APC.
Marjorie Awtrey, Linda Geesaman, Sue Gleason, Lori
Payne, Rhonda Richardson, Bev Sauerwein and Linda
Walton attended.
On Friday, October 26, a group volunteered for a
Habitat for Humanity build. They had a great time
installing insulation in the basement and painting the
exterior. Friday night, the Kansas City chapter hosted the
NAWIC Your Secret Key to Success. The eleven keys she
discussed are:
1. Develop Personal Leadership Skills
2. Communicate Ideas & Concepts
2. Organization & Time Management
3. Improve Communication Skills
4. Assist Creative & Crictical Thinking
5. Deepen Listening & Feedback Skills
6. Teach While Giving Back
7. Gain Fresh Perspectives
8. Expand Business Connections & More
9. Enhance Resume
10. Collaboration is Everything
A group from Pittsburgh State University gave a
presentation on their participation in the Extreme Makeover:
hospitality room allowing everyone
the opportunity to catch up with
each other. Saturday morning, Bev
Sauerwein, Region Six Director,
called APC to order and the day of
informative, educational and
motivational speakers began. But
first, Stephanie San Paulo from the
Southwest Missouri chapter got our
blood pumping by leading all of us
in some exercises!
Patty Cook talked to us about

2012 Region Six Annual Planning Conference
Home Edition in Joplin, Missouri. What an awesome job
they did! You could see and hear the pride they had in
being a part of the event. After lunch, the auction of the
benches and other wood items was held. Auctioneers
Alise Martiny and Pattie Pogue did a great job. Over
$1,700 was raised for NEF from the auction!!
The afternoon session began with a Mock Meeting. It is
always good to be reminded of the appropriate manner
for the board to conduct business. The ever talented
Vickie Nichols from the Kansas City, Missouri chapter did
a presentation on membership recruiting titled “Gone
Fishin”. Vickie related recruiting new NAWIC members to
going fishing. The video that Vickie and crew did was
outstanding—very informative, funny and so creative!
Sally Wurtzler from the St. Joseph, Missouri chapter gave
some tips on how to submit a winning Block Kids project to
the regional competition. The five steps she gave were:
1. Get the story.
2. Neatness counts.
3. Join the digital revolution.
4. Less is more.
5. Capture the cute.
The 2012 APC was a well-attended, worthwhile event. There
were 57 wonderful NAWIC women in attendance. Bev
Sauerwein did an amazing job in planning it. Plan on
attending the next regional or national event — it will give
you a whole new perspective of NAWIC and the outstanding
women involved with it. In fact, you won’t even need to
travel to get to the next regional event—2013 Forum is in
Wichita!
Great event! Region Six Rocks!
