Hello! I was very reluctant to even consider joining the WI, and only attended a local Meeting to keep a friend company. Needless to say I was hooked after 10 minutes and have loved every moment of W.I. since.
I became President of Overton-on-Dee within weeks of joining (still not sure how that happened but I know it's not a unique experience!) and later joined the Board of Trustees, which has been a welcome opportunity to meet so many wonderful people. There's lots to learn – but it's fun and very rewarding.
