June marked the beginning of summer and signaled freedom for many students as they stream out of schools, ready for lazy days, outside activities, swimming, climbing and traveling. Families gathered together with music, parades, BBQs and lots of fun as they celebrated Father’s Day and Juneteenth. Independence Day (July 4th) is our countries grand celebration that’s also filled with hot dogs, hamburgers, cakes and pies. Have fun and enjoy your vacations!

I want to thank our President Elect Audrey Selden and the Strategic Planning Committee for their commitment to complete our strategic plan. The Strategic Plan for 2019-2021 was approved by the board on June 19, 2019. Below are highlights from the plan.

Our Goals for 2019 – 2021:

  • Create Professional Development and Leadership
  • Assure the Goals of the Membership are being met
  • Promote EWTG Organizational Growth
  • Increase Public Awareness of EWTG
  • Assure Adequate, Cost Effective and Stable Administration of EWTG

Please read the information regarding the Strategic Plan in Audrey article.  Again, thanks Audrey and Committee!

On July 24, 2019, Judge Elisabeth Earle will be speaking at our Development Luncheon. Judge Earle began her legal career as a prosecutor with the Travis County Attorney's Office where she focused her attention on prosecuting domestic violence cases. In 1998, she was appointed Municipal Court Judge for the City of Austin and, in 1999, was named the first Presiding Judge of the Downtown Austin Community Court, receiving the Community Collaboration Award.

Judge Earle founded the Travis County DWI Court in April 2008 and continues to be the Presiding Judge, furthering the Court’s mission to enhance public safety through providing an intensive, judicially supervised program of team-based counseling, treatment, and supervision to alcohol/substance abuse dependent DWI offenders. Please join us on Wednesday July 24, 2019 for this exciting event.

Don’t forget to register for our Capital Cruise on Lady Bird Lake!!! This event will be held on July 31st, The Membership and Educational Events Committee invite you to our annual boat cruise for a sightseeing adventure on Lady Bird Lake (formerly Town Lake) in Austin. See you there!

At our Mini Course on June 12th Tamala Fletcher gave a very stimulating, interactive and informative presentation. Tamala is an EWTG member and currently works with Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) as the Executive Director Administrative Assistant. Tamala discuss new ventures for enhancing our presentation skills and growing our leadership’s skills in our current positions. Tamala also empowered the audience to give impromptu presentations that helped each of them convey power, confidence and authority.  Tamala, thank you for sharing your knowledge about your new journey as the Club President for Toastmaster International.

The EWTG Community Involvement Chair, Dominique McLeggan-Brown, organized an EWTG event on June 20, 2019 at the Central Texas Food Bank. EWTG members and other partners boxed 6,500 meals for the community. The music was great, the volunteers had fun as we inspected, cleaned, sorted, boxed and packed pizzas that were donated to the Food Bank's Partner Agencies and the folks they serve. Magnificent Job!

President Elect Audrey Selden and the EWTG Mentoring Committee hosted Tacos and Talk on June 21, 2019 at Rudy’s BBQ.  Fifteen members participated in the event from 7:00am to 9:15am.  They shared their mentoring questions and concerns as well as volunteered for other committees. This was an awesome networking event!

On June 24th through June 27th fourteen EWTG members participated in the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, 2019 Summit - Light the way to Freedom to end human trafficking. The EWTG members assisted with the registration and room monitoring for the Summit. All volunteers were given the opportunity to attend the conference free of charge. I want to thank Blanca Lance, Director of Human Trafficking and Child Exploitation and Lesley Gutherie for the opportunity to serve at your conference.

In addition, H.L. Whitman, Jr. Commissioner, Texas Department of Family and Protective Services and Jim Sylvester, Associated Commissioner for Child Protective Investigations, Texas Department of Family Protective Services hosted the Summit.  They had 2 keynote speakers and 32 dynamic presenters with 800 plus attendees at the conference.

On June 26, 2019, at our Developmental Luncheon we were honored to have the Mayor Pro Tem Delia Garza. She was elected to Austin City Council in November 2014, as part of Austin’s first 10-1 Council. She was reelected in November 2016 and in January 2019 Garza was the first Latina to serve on the City Council in Austin, and she is the first Latina to serve as Austin’s Mayor Pro Tem. She represents District 2 in Southeast Austin. 

Garza became a firefighter, serving as one of the first Mexican-American women firefighters in the Austin Fire Department. As a member of the Austin Firefighters Association, Local 975, Garza worked tirelessly for her union, advocating for fair wages and safer working conditions. She also shared a few words of wisdom with us: try new things; redefine the mold; remember you will fail but don’t give up; the conversation will change when women are at the table; and finally, “be kind.”

In conclusion, Delia Garza has inspired us to ‘DREAM BIG.’ Here’s a quote from Dr. Mae Jemison, engineer, physician, and NASA astronaut "Don't let anyone rob you of your imagination, your creativity, or your curiosity. It's your place in the world; it's your life.”

Board Mentor Reflections

Liza C. Willmore, EWTG Board Mentor, Accenture

The benefit of mentoring is a reward in itself. As we move forward in our careers, we may often forget the required everyday practice of empathy and active listening.

With looming deadlines and projects, how often do we step back and truly ask, "Hey, how are you doing?" People are every organization's most valuable asset and to truly reap the benefit of each person's potential, personalized, and intentionally devoted time and guidance are critical to each person's success.

In my experience of mentoring two board members this year, I have found that I am learning to exercise that side of me as well. Each of the board members has a specific need, and as a mentor, I flex to meet her requests. One board member, I speak with almost every other week by text, phone, or email. The other board member we speak when she has ideas to bounce off a sounding board.

Whichever method, the important thing about being a mentor or a mentee is to exercise those critical leadership skills: communication, patience, and self-reflection. Everyone who has succeeded in life has had a mentor that he/she can name, and I am no different.


Gena Minjares, EWTG Board Mentor, Texas Treasury Safekeeping Trust Company

The finance function provides valuable insight into all aspects of an organization. Developing the skills needed to understand, interpret and analyze the data to gather these insights and communicate this information effectively to stakeholders is a challenge facing finance officers in private, public, and non-profit industries. EWTG recognizes the importance of developing these skills.

As part of the mentoring program, the Finance Director Carol Harper (Office of Court Administration) and the Secretary/Treasurer Deana Sanders (Austin Water) are partnering with me to focus on exploring how the Finance function of EWTG can interpret and analyze accounting data to identify trends and opportunities for improvement of the organization as a whole. Discussion topics have included committee member selection, investment policy review, income, and budgetary questions and the annual EWTG audit.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT LUNCHEON – July 24, 2019

JUDGE ELISABETH A. EARLE - pic

Judge Elisabeth A. Earle

Judge Elisabeth Earle was born and raised in Austin, Texas, earning a BA degree from the University of Texas while learning the workings of the law while employed at the State Bar of Texas. In 1990, she moved to London, England, and worked for an American law firm, Gibson Dunn & Crutcher. After returning to Austin, Judge Earle worked for the Texas Senate Jurisprudence Committee and the Criminal Justice Division of the Texas Governor's Office. These experiences reinforced her decision to study the law, so she moved to San Antonio, Texas, to attend St. Mary's University School of Law. While attending St. Mary’s University School of Law, Judge Earle was honored to receive the National Association of Women Lawyers’ Award.

Judge Earle began her legal career as a prosecutor with the Travis County Attorney's Office, where she focused her attention on prosecuting domestic violence cases. This effort received recognition from the Austin Police Department’s Victim Services Division, and the experience reinforced her desire to protect and serve crime victims. In 1998, she was appointed Municipal Court Judge for the City of Austin and, in 1999, was named the first Presiding Judge of the Downtown Austin Community Court, receiving the Community Collaboration Award. In 2002, Judge Earle successfully won her election to the County Court at Law bench and was re-elected to serve her fifth term. In addition to presiding over her daily docket, Judge Earle founded the Travis County DWI Court in April 2008 and continues to be the Presiding Judge, furthering the Court’s mission to enhance public safety through providing an intensive, judicially supervised program of team-based counseling, treatment, and supervision to alcohol/substance abuse dependent DWI offenders. In 2011, Judge Earle was voted by her peers to serve as Presiding Judge over the County Court at Law Judges and continues to serve in that role.

Judge Earle frequently speaks on community and restorative justice issues and is often asked to share her vision for using criminal courts to deliver justice to offenders, while simultaneously developing within them a sense of community responsibility and commitment to self-reform. Judge Earle uses her courtroom to change lives and prevent repeat offenses -- all to the benefit of offenders, victims, and taxpayers alike. Some have viewed Judge Earle's efforts as the most innovative in the field. She has been awarded the Austin Under 40 Award for Government, the Toastmasters International Communication and Leadership Award for outstanding service, and has been honored by her peers, receiving the Austin Young Lawyers Association “AYLA” Outstanding Young Lawyer Award and the AYLA Outstanding Alumni Award. Also, Judge Earle recently received the 2019 Travis County Women Lawyers’ Pathfinder’s Award recognized for being a role model and pioneer, shattering stereotypes and blazing trails for female attorneys.

In appreciation of her dedication to smart-on-crime policies during the Texas State Legislative session, Judge Earle received the DWI Court Advocate Award from the Texas Criminal Justice Coalition. Judge Earle was also recognized in Washington D.C. and awarded the Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) National President’s Award for Criminal Justice for her role in the implementation of DWI courts nationally. Subsequently, she received the prestigious 2015 MADD Outstanding Judiciary Service Award and will be honored in July 2019 at the annual MADD Recognition Luncheon for her continuing service.

Judge Earle’s involvement in the legal community extends nationally, serving as Director and Treasurer in the National Association of Women Judges (NAWJ). She has volunteered her time as the point person for the “Color of Justice” program, the goal of which is to encourage minority high school students to consider law as a career aspiration, and was recognized for her participation in the 25th-anniversary celebration of the International Association of Women Judges. She is a Texas Bar Foundation Fellow, a Master in the Lloyd Lochridge Chapter of the American Inns of Court, and a graduate and past member of the Leadership Austin Board of Directors. Judge Earle has served as President of the Austin Bar Association, Chair of the Austin Bar Foundation Board, and President of the Austin Young Lawyers Association. She has also volunteered and served on many boards, including the Texas Young Lawyers Association, the Salvation Army, Community Action Network Resource Council, and Volunteer Legal Services of Austin.

Judge Earle has given her time to the Texas Center for the Judiciary by serving on the Budget Committee for the Third Administrative Judicial Region; as Secretary for the Texas Association of County Court Judges; and as a member on the DWI Curriculum Committee, charged with the duty of teaching the curriculum to her colleagues around the state. She was awarded the Texas Center for the Judiciary certificate for Criminal/Juvenile and Civil Jurisprudence at the Texas College for Judicial Studies. In addition, Judge Earle was asked by the Texas Indigent Defense Commission to present at the 15th Anniversary Symposium commemorating the signing of the Fair Defense Act. In 2017, Judge Earle was elected to the State Bar of Texas Judicial Section Board of Directors Place 9, and recently she was asked to serve on the Legislative and Campaign Law Section of the State Bar of Texas.

Judge Earle is the proud mother of Alexandra Claire and Avery Elise and married to Jeffrey Clark, President of the Advanced Power Alliance.

IN YOUR COMMUNITY

I recently learned about an organization working with students around the country and had an opportunity to meet with the Central Texas Executive Director, Meredith Norris. The organization is Generation Citizen and it’s teaching kids about their community, their government, and how they can get involved and make a difference. Generation Citizen is transforming how civics education is taught by bringing the subject to life. It champions a hands-on civics education that equips all young people with the skills and knowledge needed to lead in their communities.

Through Action Civics, young people learn how the governmental process works and realize their ability to navigate and influence the civic institutions that affect their lives. In the classroom, the Action Civics program invites students to engage with the local issues and institutions impacting their communities. Generation Citizen also provides thought leadership, conducts research, and builds coalitions to advocate for state and district-level policies that ensure schools prioritize civics education.

In Texas, Generation Citizen has already served hundreds of students at schools in Austin, Bastrop, Elgin, and Manor – and Generation Citizen is proud to announce it’s expanding the program to Dallas!

There are opportunities for EWTG members to get involved with Generation Citizen as mentors, judges, and speakers. If you are interested in learning more or getting involved, please contact Ms. Norris at mnorris@generationcitizen.org or visit the Generation Citizen website at www.generationcitizen.org.

EWTG Helps the Central Texas Food Bank

Our EWTG community service event for June focused on feeding families in need. EWTG members volunteered at the Central Texas Food Bank and helped provide 6,500 meals. We built family care packages filled with a variety of frozen pizzas. Our members worked alongside other student volunteers, and we enjoyed getting to know our student helpers while singing, dancing, inspecting and sorting pizzas. It was a fun night, and we look forward to more events in the future! The Central Texas Food Bank feeds 46,000 families per week and provides meals for 3.4 million clients per year. In addition to nourishing Texans, the food bank also works to eliminate food waste and promote agricultural sustainability. Last year, the Central Texas Food Bank rescued 24.7 million pounds of food from retailers, manufacturers, etc. and distributed 47 million pounds of food. EWTG was happy to have a small role in helping feed Texas families and eliminating food waste.


Be on the lookout for service opportunities during the year. EWTG has served the following organizations over the years: Red Cross, Safe Place Alliance, Central Texas Food Bank, Susan G. Komen, Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders, Ronald McDonald House, and many other organizations helping women and children.
