President's Message


    Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.

    It is indeed an honor to serve as your Chapter President for this new term, affective July, 2015.  My Executive Board and I are eager to bring a fresh perspective to recruitment, leadership, and mentorship. 

    The various links found on our website contains useful information that should facilitate your ability to be a committed and active member with the DC Chapter of the ROCKS, Inc. 
    Attracting members from the greater Washington, DC area, this chapter is renowned for its vigor, outreach and camaraderie. We will endeavor to not only maintain that same sense of community, but to grow our organization to new levels. As we constantly honor our past to reaffirm our triumphs, we confidently eye the future as we continue to move forward to realize our true potential.  In short, this year is going to be dynamic both individually and collectively! I look forward to what the future has in store for us and I humbly ask for your support and participation during the next year.  

    In order to achieve this feat, your contributions are vital. Again, it is the membership that makes this organization grow and succeed. Our core competency is mentoring, with foci on strengthening the Army’s current cadre of officers & building a “bench” with depth and versatility.
    This chapter meets monthly and conducts signature events at least once a quarter.  There are numerous committees and task forces providing varied opportunities to get involved. Whatever your respective niche may be, the ROCKS DC Chapter has something for you… please don’t let the many opportunities pass you by- get involved and stay involved.  We value your talents and experiences and eagerly want to help you leverage them to help others.  We exist, and we grow, for the betterment of each other.  As we do this, we add value to our profession and to the vitality of the country’s national security. 
    My name is Shelia Howell-Flowers and I am humbled and proud to serve as your President and I look forward to working with each of you to help you get the most out of your affiliation with the DC Chapter and with the national organization.
