Dear WiNUP Members,

I hope everyone has been doing well with all that is going on in the world.  By now most of us have settled in at our home offices and are comfortable with our new way of working. For me, this has, at times, been a challenge with technology not always being my friend. However, as we do, we work through obstacles we all find a way to make it work. Our number one priority should be to stay safe and healthy. Some tips to get you through the weeks working from home:

  • Get Dressed
  • Designate a workspace or home office
  • Keep clearly defined working hours
  • Build a transition into and out of work (think of it as your commute time).
  • Don’t get too sucked in by the news or anything else
  • Communicate, Communicate, Communicate
  • Don't forget to socialize - but a distance or virtually
As our communities, states, and companies develop plans for our return to work, we will be adjusting once again. We do not know what this new normal will look like. One thing for sure, it will be different! As strong women in our families, communities and companies, we all need to use that strength to help each other get through these rough times.

The Executive Committee of WiNUP continues business as usually, we continue to hold our monthly meetings, and work on behalf of our members. Most of the issues that we are addressing may be different, but be assured the best interest of WiNUP and our members are always our focus. The professional development webinars that WiNUP purchased for this year continue. During this stay at home period, these are being recorded and, just like March’s webinar, the April recording will be sent to the chapter chairs so it can be shared with all members. Several chapters and members have sent in professional development opportunities that we have shared with all members. If any additional ones come up, please let the EC know so we can continue to offer our members as much development opportunities as possible.

Work continues with the planning of the summer board meeting and the 2020 International conference. Everyone continues to stay up to date on the guidance that is being given for the reopening of our states and going back to work. You will be receiving a survey from the conference committee concerning the current situation, when you receive it (early May), please take a few minutes and fill it out so your voice is heard. The EC will keep you up to date as conditions change.

I would like to know what has changed for you with working from home.

A few things have changed for me with the stay at home order; I am at home. Many of you know, I travel a lot for work, so being at home for over a month is a different normal. I am taking walks almost every day. I am up to 75 minutes and 4 miles. I have been going out every 10-14 days to get groceries. In addition, I am looking at Facebook posts more each day.  I hope to break this habit soon.

Wanted to share:
I just returned from my trip to Kroger and I made several observations. There were very few people shopping, there are now arrows to tell us which direction to go in each isle, and there are spots by the cash registers to tell us where to stand. Most of the people had on facemasks, but not all. It was very easy to stay as least 6 feet apart. I think the most interesting thing, as I am putting my groceries in my car; I saw two cars leave the parking lot. In the first, the driver still had on her mask; in the second car, the driver pulled down her mask and it was still on her face just below her mouth. Not sure, but did her mask really do her any good?
Bandanna
My homemade mask. I remembered I had a bandanna from the 2016 conference. Never know when the goodies in the gift bags will come in handy.

If you have any tips or stories that you would like to share, please send them to me. I will compile them and put out another letter with all of them. Also, do not forget to “LIKE” the WiNUP Facebook page; this is another way that we can stay in touch.

Stay safe, I hope to see you all soon!

Janet Hewitt
2020 WiNUP International President
