Letter from the President

Howdy Members!

Wow, we are almost halfway into the calendar year and our members are rockin’ it!  I am continually amazed by the hard work our chapters are doing! I have had the opportunity to visit several WiNUP chapters already this year virtually or in person, and I am impressed with all the planning, coordination, community involvement, and member development that is happening. Just incredible work!!!!

Next, I want to echo the hard work the 2024 Conference Planning Committee is doing to bring our membership an industry balanced and professional development program to this year’s conference.  Registration is currently open for the 2024 International Conference in Charleston, South Carolina, September 22nd – 25th! This year’s conference theme is “Power”, “Strength” and “Resilience”! Continue to monitor the WiNUP website and communications on upcoming conference updates!

As I close for this quarter, I continue to reflect on the H.O.M.E. acronym I shared with you all at the 2023 conference and want to focus on the “O” (which stands for “Outreach”). As I have journeyed through the WiNUP chapter meetings this year, I have noticed a lot of outreach to help grow our chapters and sustain our membership. Thanks to all our members for your continued “OUTREACH” efforts and helping our membership grow from “acorns to oaks”!  #takeithome
