President's Message

Dear Women in Defense Central Florida Community,

I hope this message finds you, your family and all your loved ones’ safe, healthy and well! COVID-19 has changed our daily lives and will likely have an impact on our personal and professional lives for the foreseeable future.

In light of the need for our community to support our stay-at-home and social distancing guidelines, WID CFL has decided to postpone the events we had planned, beginning with the March Women in Contracting program we were co-hosting with our NCMA Mid-Florida colleagues, through September.

As of now, the first event we are planning to hold in person this year is our October 22nd Carol F. Denton Golf Range Challenge. We will be continuing to monitor the progress of COVID-19 and adjust as needed.

In the meanwhile, we realize our membership has a variety of new issues and challenges as we get used to spending most time at home. We will be collecting relevant information – in forms of online article, podcasts, etc. – and posting them to our website periodically. Please send me a message if there are specific content items you’d like to see.

Wishing everyone wellness as we work through the impacts of COVID-19!

Elizabeth Biddle, WID CFL President
