The Woman Within International Board is pleased to announce that our Director of Circles position has been graciously filled by Judie Cummings from the Woman Within Eastern USA region.
Judie attended her Woman Within Weekend in May of 2009 in Elmer, New Jersey. Shortly after her Weekend she joined the DEVA (Delaware Valley) council. She ran circles in New Jersey and Pennsylvania and started new circles. Judie is also certified in her region as a Circle Guide for new or existing circles.
More recently, Judie held the position of Director of DEVA where she helped organize the local welcoming celebrations each year and keept the council on task. She also enjoys hosting a MKP/Woman Within BBQ each July.
Judie has sat in circle since her Weekend, and is even known to have periods of time when she is in two.
“Circle is a place I can show up as fully who I am, be supported and heard without being fixed. I’d love every woman to have a place like that too.”
On a more personal note, Judie is a wife, a mother and a full-time tech whisperer. She loves to be creative and find interesting solutions to resolve challenges.
Judie’s role on the WWI Board is a new position as the board decided to elevate Circle Liaison to a voting director. Joanna Stanfield, our former Circle Liason, saw many successes over the past two and a half years, and will be part of the transition. Additionally, Joanna will continue to serve the community through her position on the WWW USA board. We thank Joanna for her dedication in supporting our circles, growing our community and holding space for our intentions around circles internationally.
Thank you to both these ladies for stepping up.
