Dear Family Network member,
We hope that you, your family and your loved ones are doing well. While we are saddened by the impact of conflict and the plight of people in some parts of the world, we are also happy to see a cautious return to normalcy in others. Indeed, there has been a resumption of meetings and activities of Family Network members in some locations.
Let’s hope for the best in the coming months for improved situations so we can see many more member activities and interactions across the globe.
Speaking of activities, our 50th Anniversary celebrations are going strong, and our most recent session was the Welcome and Support Part II: Welcoming Worldwide in April. It was a great experience, sharing stories of our global legacy which continues, welcoming new families in WBG office locations, before and after they move, and offering ongoing support in cohesive WBGFN communities. Stay tuned and keep tracking our website and social media channels to stay updated on our upcoming 50th Anniversary celebration activities.
It is also time for our Annual Membership Meeting 2022 this month. This year the Annual Meeting will be virtual so that we can maximize member participation from across the globe. We would request you to visit our website and register your attendance to participate, view and cast your vote for the FY 2023 Slate and the proposal to amend the WBGFN Bylaws. We hope that you can join your fellow members on May 12, 2022, and we look forward to seeing you all once again.
We would like to end this month’s message requesting that you take care of yourself. In these trying times, while we try our best to look after our families, set aside a little time for yourself. Remember, it's not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and make your happiness a priority. It's necessary.
Sara and Ashik
