This Sunday, the Wid Steering Committee met for 7 hours to gear up for next year’s efforts. We had elections for committee chairs, examined what worked and what didn’t during the past year, ate well, and set our goals for 2011. The Events Committee will be expanding on the concept of the popular Hard Hat Tours and the Networking Committee is thinking outside the box. Yes, there will be a return of the kickball! The Outreach Committee is continuing to focus on mentoring. The Communications Committee will be enlivening this site with blog (fun and casual) and news (informative) items. If you’re interested in being a part of what makes WiD tick, let us know. Once you become a WiD member, email us a request at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you the information on the next Steering Committee Meeting so you can join us.
Welcome to WiD’s new, restructured website! It’s the same beautiful design done for us by Steidley Design, LLC, but with a smooth running Wordpress structure beneath, developed by Shompton LLC. While we are ironing out the “new website wrinkles,” we appreciate your patience and feedback, but it’ll all be worth it for the enhanced membership functions, the ability to pre-pay for upcoming events and classes, and a more intuitively organized site. If you have any comments or concerns, feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
We’ve got lots of plans for a members only section of the site, but for now we’re focusing on getting what we have working smoothly for our members and our volunteers. In the latter half of the year, we’ll be starting up a fun blog/news section with feature articles on our past events and activities, teasers and behind-the-scenes stories for our upcoming events, and other entertaining heads up on activities, people, and news that may interest our readers. We hope you come back to see our online presence develop. In the meantime, you can also follow us on Facebook, where we’ll be keeping you up to date on WiD’s blossoming. If you’re a member, join us on LinkedIn. It’s one of the many Members-Only benefits designed to give you networking connections with other WiD members. Membership is only $35 for individuals — click here to join us!
