President’s Message - Lori Haney, 2014-2015

Building on Our Legacy – Keep the Flame Alive


To my fellow SBW sisters – thank you for giving me this privilege. Thank you for entrusting me to be your president this year. My theme, my goal for this year is to continue “Building on our Legacy” and “to keep the flame alive.” As your president, I inherit a strong, rich history that was established by many women before my time. It is my goal to add to and learn from their work so that we can sustain our efforts to empower future generations of women. My goals this year include:

It is my hope that these goals will help to promote the longevity of this organization and continue to empower a community of strong business women to lead us for generations to come. Throughout history, women have changed the cultural and political landscape of our world. Generations before us fought for women’s rights to be landowners and to vote; for the right to work and expect equal pay for our work; for the right to make choices about our own bodies; and for the right to be defined as our own autonomous beings.

With each of these hard fought fights, it took the collaboration of many women to bring about change, and the change they yielded has bettered the circumstances for the next generation of women in this world.

It is my challenge to my fellow SBW sisters to recognize the strengths, capabilities, and accomplishments of the various generations that make up our club and the whole history of the women’s movement.

There is a legacy that was left to every generation that preserved our history and made the next generations’ circumstances better. My overarching goal for this year is to learn from one another, across generational lines, so that we may continue to build on that legacy left by the women before us. May our passion for equality and our passion to leave this world better than we found it, burn bright in each of us. I’m not asking that we pass the torch or flame on to the next generation of women to come, but that we share and help ignite that flame in each of them so that it burns eternally. Please help Keep the Flame Alive. We owe this to ourselves and to our fellow sisters. We’ve proven we can make lasting cultural, professional, and political change in this world. As women, we are fierce! We’re amazing! Just look at Ginger Rogers, “She did everything Fred Astaire could do, but she did backwards and in high heels!”

I am honored to be your President, and look to each of you for your support and guidance to lead this club through my year as your President. I look forward to serving each of you and the legacy of Sedalia Business Women.

Lori Haney SBW President 2014-15
