As I begin my term as your WiNUP International President, I wanted to reflect on what I believe the organization is really all about.
WiNUP’s mission is to provide a link for developing and recognizing professionals involved with utility business trends, issues, products and services. We are committed to enhancing the careers — and lives — of all of our 600-plus members.
Our members’ input is paramount as we work to address their needs and wants. When we hear about their professional journeys, their stumbling blocks and their successes, and how they rely on WiNUP to enhance their careers, we are even more motivated to become an organization that they can count on.
We believe member collaboration will significantly improve our success, not only in all our careers but our overall quality of life. That success is attainable by being true to our objectives:
- Opportunities for professional development members
- Networking and mentoring among members
- Recognition and visibility for members and business partners.
A hallmark of good leadership is taking responsibility for the organization’s welfare. And your international leadership team vows to do just that. We will work relentlessly not only to ensure our members’ success, but the growth and success of WiNUP.
I'm a firm believer that each and every day offers a chance for us to work together, pursue new opportunities and improve upon the past. As we approach our organization's 100th anniversary as an advocate for women in the utility industry, let's enjoy the journey together -- acknowledging our history while moving toward a bright future.
