Welcome to Ohio Chapter of WiNUP                      


Hillary Sheffer, 2018 Ohio Chapter Chair

Message from Chair…

Where has the time gone? It goes without saying, it is 2018 already. I know everybody agrees that time speeds up as we get older, but it still amazes me how time flies – Guess we are having fun!

Well the fun continues. Please join me and your 2018 board for what we hope will be an exciting time to be in WiNUP. The mission of WiNUP is to be “an organization providing a link for developing and recognizing professionals involved with utility business trends, issues, products, and services.” The objectives of the organization are to provide development, mentoring and networking opportunities for our members along with recognizing our members and business partners.

My theme for 2018 is to focus on “Striving to Succeed – powering the tools and connections needed to make the most out of one’s career”. This effort will allow us to focus on a chapter strategic plan that will:

  • Update the local support documents for the chapter and committees

  • Review of existing Committees to identify continuous improvement ideas

  • Develop a chapter calendar of meetings and events

  • Flush out the Internet/Technology Strategy which includes redesign of our website and develop a chapter Facebook Page

This is to ensure that our chapter provides access to the tools and connections you need to be the best you can be not only in WiNUP but in your career. Let us know what challenges you are facing or needs you have.
I want to leave you with these words from the famous Christopher Robin to his closest and dearest friend. “Remember, you are Braver than you believe, Stronger than you seem and Smarter than you think.” Together we can accomplish much.
