From the President's Desk
As President of the Zonta Club of Naples I pledge to lead in a manner that demonstrates success and eliminates division or roadblocks for others. I will trust my dreams and be the prisoner of nothing. My private victories will create unselfish victories for others that follow me. The pursuit of excellence will determine the options we decide to exercise and the paths we choose to travel. I will expect no more of others than I expect of myself.
