2020 Virtual Annual Meeting

Thank you for joining us for the 2020 Annual Members meeting. If you missed these events, we have included links to video highlights from the 2020 Annual Meeting above. They can also be found in our Member’s Webinar Library.

During the meeting we were able to review the highlights of 2020, look forward to 2021, meet and thank our past board members and officers and meet our new officers for 2021.

We honored St. Catherine University for their ongoing support for the TRUST as well as our 2020 Jean Harris Award Winner, Monica Engel and our Mentor of the Year, Jeannette Rivet.

We were inspired by the words of Keynote speaker Kara Richardson Whitely as well as our past president Leslie Bodell and current president Christine Bent. The excitement and enthusiasm this evening was contagious, and we are grateful to all that participated in our Annual meeting.

Keynote speaker Kara Richardson Whitely wowed our attendees….

Congratulations to Jeannette Rivet, Mentor of the Year!

Jeannette Rivet

Jeannine has been an impactful leader in developing and supporting other women, both during her very active professional career and now during her equally active retirement. Jeannine is a current and committed mentor in the TRUST’s Impact Mentoring Program and after hearing what her mentees had to say about Jeannine there was no doubt why she was selected for this honor.
