SWIS Governor 2020 - 2021

Wow, where do I start? Perhaps Thank You! Looking back at the August, 2019 Convention you had confidence in me and voted me in as Governor Elect. I now address you as SWIS District Governor and I am here to tell you, I will not let you down. The farthest thing from my mind in September, 2009, when I joined the Optimist Club Platteville was someday serving the SWIS District as Governor, primarily because of my lack of self-confidence and second guessing myself. In my youth I experienced bullying, was not the cheerleader or overachiever; I did not think I could accomplish what I have, but because of my hard work and dedication, I have conquered many challenges over the years. What is in our future as I serve as SWIS District Governor?

Governor's Update

I believe strongly that each of us needs to work to mentor and get others involved.  This means that those in leadership positions need to ask/recruit other members and mentor them to allow our organization to continue to grow, be strong, be the organization of choice and serve more children.

We need to encourage and share ideas, and we can only do that by encouraging and reaching out to other members.  We need to get people involved and empower them. 

“The Power of One” is within all of us.  Reaching out, mentoring, and working in unison to reach our goals in serving children and community.

I look at the shoes I’m looking to fill as SWIS District Governor.  Intimidating, damn right!  However, I’m once again ready to meet my fears and prove that through my determination and belief, I will do the best job I can.

I recently was introduced to a new quote, “Participation if preferred over Perfection”.  I’m far from perfect although I’ve been told I’m a perfectionist.  I am Maxine Lane, upfront and honest.  If I make a mistake, I’ll admit to it. 

I am looking forward to working alongside my team members and every other member within the SWIS District.  Thank you seems so inadequate so I’ll say it twice, Thank You, for allowing me to serve you in the capacity of SWIS District Governor, 20-21.

“Forever in Optimism”,  Maxine Lane, SWIS District Governor 2020-2021
