Dear PARWCC friends,
It’s a Covid, Covid, Covid world out there! I know a lot of our members have been touched by the physical implications of the virus and you are all, truly, in my heart.
Here at HQ I think, actually, it’s been pretty good for us. Now, hear me out. I’d much rather we never had to hear about face masks and how curvy the curve is! However, the need to provide for our membership was a big push for us to move some initiatives ahead.
I’d like to extend my personal thanks to Jay Block for so generously giving his time to Spotlight on YOU for the month of May. This sports radio meets webinar format was all him! To the guests he conned, er, convinced, to appear with him, Diane Hudson, Bruce Wahlgren, Tammy Ditzel, Heidi Guisto, and Don Orlando, thank you all! Keep an eye out for Jay to reappear with his infectious enthusiasm and mad skills on a regular schedule!
Have you checked out the Career Center? We have partnered with our website platform providers on a Career Center option that links more than 2500 associations with over three million members. If you are looking for a job or looking to hire, that’s a great place to check first and keep an eye on!
Wait! There’s more! Our market research suggested, members who are new to the industry have unique needs and wanted to connect with each other. June will see our inaugural edition of Rising Professionals, which will be available to PARWCC members. HUGE thank you goes out to your hosts Stephanie Renk and Vera Sadavoy. Want to talk to someone who is in your shoes? Sign up and enjoy the energy of this dynamic duo. I left the organizational call with them so excited to get back to work! On a MONDAY no less. Let them know what topics you want to cover by using the forums on our website.
We’ve had to make a variety of concessions to normal practices and pivot quickly to accommodate some of your needs when you didn’t have all your tools at hand. Our thanks to everyone for the understanding! If you can find a few extra minutes, download this month's Spotlight Magazine for all kinds of great information.
All my best.
