National President's Blog
At the end of this month, 500 or so of our members (and future members) will be in Denver for the WEN 2019 National Conference, the culmination of over a year of planning. The Conference is an immense undertaking, but it is perhaps the most effective way to advance our mission of empowering women in energy. There, we will meet to learn and network, building new relationships and growing old ones. Our hope is that the personal interaction that the Conference provides will lead to a valuable exchange of information and ideas about all aspects of the energy industry. The kind of thought leadership that will be shared in Denver drives success—both personal and professional.
Member engagement is critical to advancing our dynamic organization, and the National Board is committed to providing opportunities like the Biennial Conference for member involvement. In addition to the Denver program, the Board is creating three groups that need member participation: a governance task force, which will review and update our National bylaws, policies, guidance, and other governance documents; an executive membership task force, which will explore how best to grow this membership tier across chapters; and an alternative energy task force, which will determine how best to expand our reach outside of traditional areas of the energy industry. If you would like to be involved in any of these endeavors, please let your chapter president know.
Don’t forget: March is Women’s History Month. So, let’s go make some. See you in Denver!
