A note from Janne Myrdal on her one year sabbatical from the State Director position

“I am taking a one-year leave of absence from my leadership of CWA here in North Dakota starting January 1. It is not at all easy to step away for this time as there are so many issues and challenges to be taken on; however, I am deeply confident that our great CWA Leadership team here in North Dakota will carry on in strength and conviction in my absence. Times come in each of our lives when we have to step back for many reasons. I look forward to rejoining you in 2016 renewed in heart, body and soul!”
