Serving on the board of the diocesan ECW has been a special experience for the women who have served. It is an opportunity to meet women from across the region as well as hone business skills and develop new skills.
The usual term is a 3 year term which may be renewed for one additional term. If you are considering joining the board, you are welcome to attend a board meeting. Currently, we meet on the first Thursday of the month, usually at St. James Commons in Chicago. However, the day, time and frequency with which we meet is likely to change following our leadership retreat this summer. We are open to online and teleconferencing if you are unable to meet in person.
The work of the ECW is supported through the gracious giving of women's organizations in the churches of the Diocese. Some groups are organized with structiure and others are less formal. Some ministries identify themselves as the ECW and others do not. The ECW seeks to serve all women of the diocese through our meetings, the newsletter The Mirror, direct parish contact and our website.
In turn, for supporting the ECW financially by providing a Voluntary Financial Contribution (VFC), women's outreach programs are eligible to apply for a one-time $500 ECW Recognition Grant. A representative is also eligible to vote at the Annual Meeting. And you have a tangible connection to the organization which serves the women of the Diocese!
