Objectives

Membership

  • nContinue to grow and diversify our membership with all professionals that work in and/or support a Utilities Industry business.

  • Increase membership beyond AEP by contacting executives from other utilities to promote WiNUP. 

  • nCreate a Member Directory by using SharePoint of the WiNUP website.

  • nIncrease member participation by reviewing the membership list and encourage members to be more active such as personal invites to attend functions or participate in committees.


Mentoring

  • nDevelop our members both personally and professionally.
  • nFocus on the creation of a group mentoring strategy which will allow participants to informally get to know each other and develop mentoring relationships.
