JULY PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Welcome to the hottest month of the year! Well, one of them. While you are indoors, hiding from the heat, remember you can still be among friends. Here’s how:

* Click: Have a seat, open a device (maybe the one you’re reading this on) and click here: https://www.facebook.com/WiVLA/ - our public Facebook page. As of this writing, we have 562 Page Likes and 589 Page Followers! Our community of friends can be your community of friends with the touch of a button.

* Post: Add to our page. Where it says, “Write a post,” add a sneak peek at your studio, a detail shot of a work in progress, or a verse of poetry to inspire a response. Give others a chance to Like what you Like.

* Share: I recently clicked the blue box labeled “Invite Friends” in the Community box in our page’s righthand side bar. I scrolled down the list of my own Facebook friends and selected women I knew to be creative and interested in the arts and invited them to Like WiVLA’s page. The following two days saw our analytics spike to an all-time high engagement level as 26 friends chose to Like the WiVLA FB page! Just think if we each invited our friends to Like WiVLA. The expanding reach of our creative women - sharing our WiVLA mission to inspire, to nurture, to support and to provide – can all start with one click!

Keep cool, keep clicking, and I’ll see you July 16 for the monthly meeting!
