Presidential Candidate

 

Candidate Letter

Greetings to Minnesota Women of Today Chapters, Districts, & Executive Council,

I would like to take this moment to do a brief introduction of myself and my prospective staff. I am honored to have the privilege to work with this talented and diverse group of women through different interactions during my time as a member of the Monticello Women of Today and having served on the Executive Council for the last few years.

As a candidate for State President, I’d like to take this opportunity to share those who will potentially be working with you in the upcoming year on my staff. It is my hope that you will find our team diverse and full of excitement for this organization.

Leading the way with ensuring that our District Directors and State Delegates are well taken care of and informed is Michelle Kocak Jones from Monticello, who is the prospective Administrative Vice President. Our enthusiastic membership team consists of Tevyan Sorensen from Burnsville, who is the prospective Membership Vice President; and Jenise Teske from Fridley, who is your prospective Chapter Management Vice President. Working with our State and Local Program Managers, we have Anna Nichols from the New Hope chapter, who is onboard for the position of prospective Programming Vice President.

Working to ensure that our finances are kept in balance is prospective Financial Vice President Mary Hansen from St. Cloud. Working to ensure that our meetings are running smoothly means Melissa Redzuan will be our prospective Parliamentarian. Working hard on the state plan of action, along with chapter mailings, will be prospective Secretary Barb Monsrud from Greenbush. Finally, one of the most important pieces to our team is the prospective Presidential Assistant Wendy Lindberg from the Coon Rapids, who will work to make sure that we have everything in order for our meetings and special events.

Of course, I am Illeana Miller from the Monticello chapter, and I am seeking your vote for the office of State President. It is an honor and privilege that I share this team with you. As myself and my prospective team makes it to Area Meetings and Annual Convention. Please do not hesitate to ask questions at these meetings, as we would love to have the opportunity to address any questions you may have.

In Fellowship, Illeana Miller, Candidate for State President Minnesota Women of Today 2020-2021

State

Getting a taste for being on the state level, she then ventured into many positions on the state level. First serving as Youth of Today State Program manager where she helped chapters raise funds for homeless youth in Minnesota. She helped raise well over $1000 for the Outstanding Young Adult Scholarship and awarded three scholarships her year as program manager. She received a MNWT Medallion for her work along with a silver key.

Her time as state Parliamentarian was spent was spent learning the ropes of our policies and bylaws. She also worked hard to fill in and help wherever she was needed by those on the executive council with her. She received a MNWT Medallion along with a gold key for her work.

As Chapter Management Vice President she worked with the membership team and chapters to stay healthy chapters. She worked to resolve any issues and helped chapters with any training they requested. She also received a MNWT medallion for her work with the chapters.

This year she is serving as the Administrative Vice President. She has worked hard to help support the district directors by creating a facebook group just for them and created a facebook group for chapter state delegates. She has tried to make her state delegate round tables full of important training, but also an opportunity for chapters state delegates to voice concerns.

Belief Statement

Illeana says that it is her belief that every member in this organization has the ability to do great things. When members push aside any fears and take a leap, the reward that they will get is more than they could imagine. She is a firm believer in tackling new opportunities head on and knows that the interactions that she has with others will always leave an impression. She knows that she does not have all the answers, but she is the first to admit that if she doesn’t have an answer she will not stop until she has one.
