The Parliamentarian, usually a past president, serves as the historian for our organization with their institutional knowledge of our local chapter, crucial relationships with the Fort Wayne medical community, and participation with our state and national groups.  The Nomination Chair is our Immediate Past-President, who leads a committee comprised of board members, that works to fill key board positions for the coming year.

Parlimentarian: Betty Canavati

Nomination Co-Chairs: Liz Hathaway and Vivian Tran

BOOK CLUB

The purpose of the Alliance Book Club is to share books through reviews and discussion. One of its greatest benefits is the development of lifelong friendships and interesting experiences throughout the year. This group meets the second Tuesday of the month, 12:00p at a rotation of restaurants or interesting venues around town.

CINDERELLA DRESS DAY

The Cinderella Dress Day Committee works all year-long to collect dresses, secure sponsorships, and organize volunteers for the seamless execution of that one special day in the Spring that we call, Cinderella Dress Day.  This event not only provides dresses for underprivileged young ladies, but works to provide a health education component, as well.  More importantly, we hope to give these young ladies a day to remember, and the message that they are special.

MEMBERSHIP

Membership is the building block of any organization. The Membership Committee is designed to welcome new physician spouses to the Fort Wayne community. Our goal is to reach out to new members through the I.U. Medical School, the Residency programs, and the Fort Wayne Medical Society. Our mission is to create a strong membership foundation that allows us to support and encourage each other while having a positive impact on the community.
Our Membership Committee represents a strong cross-section of our general membership. They understand the need for networking among physician-families, reaching out to renew former members, and recruiting new members to our organization.
