A Message from APGO Executive Director Molly Georgakis, CAE
I am extremely honored to be joining the incredible APGO community and am motivated by the opportunity to support our vision to be the global leader for improving women’s health through education. In the short time that I have been in the Executive Director position, APGO has exceeded my expectations in every way. From the clear commitment of the volunteer leaders to the deep knowledge and long tenure of the staff, I’ve been very impressed. I am fortunate to be following in the footsteps of Donna Wachter, who has been instrumental in ensuring a smooth transition. The APGO staff has been gracious in helping me to get up to speed, while ensuring continued service to members amidst a great deal of change.

While there is a lot to learn about the organization and the members we serve, I’m hopeful that the experience gained in more than 20 years of working in nonprofits, primarily in associations and professional societies, will prove valuable as we work to take APGO into the future. I’m looking forward to building on our strong foundation of programs and services and to continuing to enhance the value of membership.

I hope to meet many of you at the 2019 APGO Martin L. Stone, MD, Faculty Development Seminar in January, and the CREOG & APGO Annual Meeting in February. In the meantime, please feel free to contact me at any time at mgeorgakis@apgo.org or 410-451-9569.
