It’s an exciting time at TEMPO Madison!

There’s so much going on and you can feel the energy we bring to each other.I’m sure those of you who were at our July meeting, be it in-person or virtual, can attest to the enthusiasm. 

I can’t stress enough that TEMPO Madison offers myriad opportunities to get involved. Please make sure to become familiar with ALL of the clubs and committees that TEMPO Madison offers. There’s truly something for everyone, and the beauty of it is that you can be as involved as much (or as little) as you want. We all have different needs at different times in our lives.

And of course, along with that, don’t lose sight of all the NETWORKING opportunities TEMPO Madison provides.

For instance, last month’s networking opportunity at Susan Thomson’s house on the lake was thoroughly enjoyed by those who were there. Next up from our Networking Committee, mark your calendars as on Sept. 29, back by popular demand, we look forward to Wine & Chocolate Tasting, sponsored by Cambridge Winery and Driftless Chocolates. It’s the perfect opportunity to mix-and mingle with fellow TEMPO Madison members. Special thanks to our members Laurie Tines Peregrine and Robyn Kitson for hosting another round of this ever-popular event. Tickets are $25 per person and include wine, chocolates, and appetizers. I hope to see you there! 

Several of our standing Committees--Hospitality, Networking, Scholarship, Membership and Mentorship--held a working group meeting earlier this summer to share ideas for the coming year. They hosted a dinner on July 27 at Past President Elaine Rich’s house for new members and past scholarship recipients. It was a relaxed evening of food, fun, idea-gathering, and of course, networking. 

And last, but certainly not least – our upcoming 40th Anniversary Gala.  We’re thrilled to have Judy Woodruff, anchor and managing editor of PBS NewsHour, as our keynote speaker for our event on Saturday, Oct. 8 at Monona Terrace. The 40th Anniversary Committee is hard at work finalizing the details for this most special evening.  Please remember that there are numerous sponsorships available and we could use your help in promoting those sponsorships (after all, it’s a win-win for all involved, it’s great recognition, and a portion of the proceeds will go to our TEMPO Madison Foundation Scholarship Fund).  We greatly appreciate your reaching out to anyone you may know who would like to be a part!

You’ll want to be there as it will most definitely be a night to remember! 

Don’t forget –TEMPO Madison’s SYNERGY – we are ALL stronger TOGETHER!
