2021-2023 First Vice President
2021-2023 Liaison to State Presidents
Congratulations on being elected as your state’s president and welcome to the NGC Board of Directors. Your state members have the confidence in you that you will represent their state well.
I look back at my time serving as president of my state garden club, West Virginia Garden Club, as an incredibly positive time. I got to travel and interact with so many members. I made life-long friends not only within my state but within National Garden Clubs, Inc. I hope it will be the same for you. Thank you for your willingness to accept this position and promote the goals and objectives of National Garden Clubs Inc.
2021-2023 President Mary Warshauer will continue to promote NGC’s Plant America initiative emphasizing service to community. In addition to Plant America, Mary will promote honoring the beauty of nature by embracing the outdoors.
As State President, you are your state’s cheerleader. You can help increase or stabilize your state’s membership. You can highlight special events within your state. You can revitalize a struggling club. You can advertise your state garden club and NGC within your state and beyond. You can encourage future leadership from your state members. You can make a difference.
The purpose of the NGC website State President’s Information page is not only to provide resources to help guide you in NGC activities, but also to aid you in your state leadership role. NGC will update the information on this page so that it is available as a source to assist you. NGC is honored to have you all as a part of our team!
As the NGC First Vice-President, I will be serving as the Liaison to the State Presidents. So I will be your contact for information and guidance. Feel free to email me with questions or even concerns. If I do not know the answers, I will direct you as best I can to where you can receive the answers. The NGC Officers and the NGC Headquarters Staff Members in St. Louis, MO are all willing to answer questions and to help in any way they can.
“Great leaders don’t set out to be leader. They set out to make a difference.
It`s never about the role – it’s always about the goal” ~ M. Josephson
I encourage you to enjoy the journey and to make a difference.
