And just like that, we are in the second month of 2024! Where did January go? For me, it was spent catching up from Christmas travels, recovering from the flu, attending NAWIC Nashville planning meetings for WIC Week/April Forum, networking, and formulating a plan for the rest of the year for my company, C&R Services. I feel accomplished and am looking forward to the next 11 months.
In our January lunch meeting, we discussed how to use AI Boldly with nearly 60 women in attendance. There were great questions asked, and we received lots of follow-up emails to our presenter, proving that this is still a hot topic. We also hosted two Zoom meetings: one to review contracts and another for our NAWIC 101 session, aimed at new members and prospects.
The next few months will be just as fast-paced as January, unless you plan accordingly. If you need help with calendar management, let's meet to review! We have a busy March and April ahead, with WIC Week and Forum. Please register for these events as soon as possible, as they will fill up quickly.
As a reminder, there will be NO membership lunch meetings in March or April - we hope to see you all at WIC Week events and April Forum!
Your TO-DO list:
Sign up for WIC WEEK events
Learn the "box technique" of breathing
Sign up for Forum
Invite ONE woman to a future meeting (goal of 150 members by October 1st)
