WELV AFFILIATES

The WELV Affiliates Program began in the fall of 2013, when a group of educators from Fredericksburg decided to form a local “affiliate” chapter of WELV.

The goal of the program is to support the WELV mission by providing opportunities for social as well as professional networking and to extend the mentoring and the discussion of issues that are such a valuable part of the WELV Annual Conference each spring.

Learn more about the WELV Affiliates Program here.

WELV now has affiliate chapters in Region I (3D), Region III (WILd)Region IV (WALL) and Region V.

New regional chapters are expected to be formed in 2017 – 2018.

If you would like to form an affiliate chapter in your region, please contact Elaine Fogliani, WELV’s Executive Director.

AMBASSADORS

PROGRAM

The WELV Ambassadors Program provides an opportunity for individual women leaders to lead outreach efforts for WELV. Whether hosting “chat and chew” sessions on important issues for women in leadership positions, sharing cutting-edge innovations in pedagogy, or simply meeting informally with other women educators in the state to talk about their daily challenges and long-range aspirations, our Ambassadors spread WELV’s core mission of advancing the interests of women education leaders in Virginia.

WELV AWARDS

WELV’s Awards Program recognizes distinctive achievements by women leaders in Virginia public education.

And our broad community of WELV supporters plays a crucial role in helping us to select deserving winners!

Acting on nominations from the community, the WELV Board of Directors examines the full range of a potential winner’s accomplishments as they relate to and reflect the purpose of each award. Winners are celebrated at our Annual Conference in March.
