From the desk of Dr. Margaret Brown Payton, President

HAPPY NEW YEAR!  I’m sure we were all glad to say good-bye to 2020 with all the challenges it brought. Through it all, we made it and I thank you for being with me every step of the way.  Let’s pray for brighter days ahead as we move forward building our beloved sisterhood.  Eighty years ago (1941) we were formally organized and since that time we have been rooted and grounded in faith, love, and prayer.

MEMBERSHIP -  Our membership year is January 1st – December 30th.  The membership fee for one year is $100 and is payable by February 28th without incurring a late fee.  Membership is open to all ministers’ wives and ministers’ widows and includes our publication, the Herald.  Each member is given a membership number that will become yours throughout the years.  You must indicate your membership number for registering for regional and/or international conferences.  Every member of a local and certainly all those who hold office in local or state organizations should be a financial member of IAMWMW.  Every local and state is an affiliate of IAMWMW and have been chartered by IAMWMW.  Membership may be paid by money order/bank check, organization check or by credit card using Eventbrite.  There will not be an easing of the late fee after February 28, 2021.  The body voted on this in June 2019.  Memberships are sent to Mrs. Loretta Dennis, 3925 River Bluffs Pl., Richmond, VA 23223.

LEADERSHIP ACADEMY - ​The Leadership Academy is open to all IAMWMW members interested in learning more about our organization and its work and would like to assume some leadership role in the future.  The scope of the Academy was highlighted in the last issue of the Herald along with the application.  The deadline for applying for the first cohort has been extended to March 15, 2021.  A fillable application is available on the website.  Every region should be represented.  If you have specific questions, please contact our President Emeritus, ​Dr. Shirley Alexander Hart.
