Conferences and Annual Meeting
by Sally Seidlitz
We are only
two months away from the first Spring Conference, which will be
held in San Antonio, Texas on May 15 - 17. If you have the time,
going to a conference with Executive Women International is a wonderful
energizer. I have been to Birmingham, Alabama and Chicago, Illinois
and have met gals from all over the country. The relationships that
form and the bonding that happens in so few days are simply amazing.
Executive Women International is an incredibly diverse group of
women and after attending a conference you feel as though you just
meet several new best friends.
If you can't
make it to San Antonio, Texas perhaps Charlotte, North Carolina
on June 19-21 would work. Believe me, if you went to both conferences
you would see some of the same women. These are wonderful opportunities
to enhance your personal and professional development while visiting
premier cities in the country.
The 2003 Annual
Meeting will be held in Denver, Colorado on September 26 & 27.
Our chapter is planning to make arrangements for as many as possible
to go up to Denver. There will be more information about Denver
in future issues of our newsletter.
and I are scheduled to attend the San Antonio Conference. If you
would like to join us, all the information is on the Corporate website,
www.executivewomen.org., or you can
call us and we'll talk you into having a wonderful experience.

Last Month's Meeting
The EWI March
meeting was held on the top floor of Phantom Canyon Brewing Co.
Our speaker was Sarah Michel, who coached the group on Perfecting
Connecting or how to really use networking contacts for the benefit
of all parties concerned. She addressed the 60 Second Drill
of "So What Do You Do?" - be clear, concise, catchy, connect
& communicate. One of Sarah's favorite quotes is by Zig Ziglar
- "You can have anything you want in life, if you help others
get what they want first." You can contact Sarah at 719-576-2045,
meal was excellent, and there was a great turn-out of our EWI members.

She was born in Karney,
Nebraska and grew up in Neosho, Missouri and she definitely prefers
I had died and gone to heaven" she said upon setting up house
in our town. By the way Neosho is not far from Joplin, Missouri
She attended the University of Missouri
and majored in Journalism with an emphasis on Women's Magazines.
At the age of 21 she interned at the Better Homes and Gardens in
Des Moines, Iowa. She loved the excitement of New York City where
she wrote for the Ladies Homes Journal for a year.
She met her
handsome husband Marshall at the University of Missouri and they
have enjoyed thirty-seven years of marriage. "With the usual
ups and downs" she said. Before moving
to Colorado Springs she and Marshall lived in Portland for seven
years where they had two children, Andy and Denise. She stayed at
home with her children.
After arriving in the
Springs in 1973, Marshall began his work in construction for G.
E. Johnson. Sunny Colorado Springs was a welcome change to them
all after rainy Portland, Oregon. They owned their own construction
business for many years and employed from 19 to 32 employees.
Her experience helping to run that business prepared her well for
the position she now holds.
This is one energetic
woman so staying home with her children didn't mean that she wasn't
doing and learning with volunteer activities outside the home.
She enjoyed learning with the Toastmistress organization.
She obtained two master's degrees. One is in Sociology and
one is in Counseling from UCCS.
Her hobbies are golf,
reading and gardening. Most of her traveling consists of visits
to relatives, but she and Marshall did enjoy a visit to Hawaii not
She is now writing a
book about how to get the most out of life which she hopes to have
finished by this time next year.
She says the job she
has now is perfect for her. It uses her writing skills with
a weekly article in the Gazette and she feels blessed. She
enjoys the community involvement and helping consumers and businesses.
She has been with the business for eleven years and in 1992 she
became the Director. By now I am sure you have guessed that this
talented woman is an asset to this community and an asset to EWI.
Her name is Carol Odell.
