  1. Teresa, you put the entire meeting into a nutshell! Thanks for everything you did to showcase all of us with your camera and bright presence! You are the very best support for women and the book.

  2. Teresa, you are our rock star girl! Thanks for getting this information up and out there so fast. It is people like you who make being a part of our wonderful chapter a true joy.

  3. NIce job, as usual, Teresa. What would San Franicso Chapter do without you? Glad the planning meeting went so well. Talked to Linda – she said it was terrific, and it looks like our best events are on the slate for the coming year.
