Who is my direct link to the WRJ Southeast District?
Your direct link, in addition to your Sisterhood President, is your Area Director. She will contact your Sisterhood three times a year informing you of happenings throughout the district and WRJ happenings, plus she will inform the district of what your Sisterhood is doing. Information can also be obtained from the Bulletin which is sent out three times a year. And of course, the WRJ Southeast District President is always available when you need her! Any of these people may serve as a resource person to help with ideas, guest speakers and Sisterhood issues.
