Message from the 2019 President
It is with great pleasure that I serve as your North Texas chapter President for 2019. Founded in 2009, our chapter is one of WEN’s earliest. We serve the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and surrounding areas, and boast active membership of over 300 individuals working in all facets of the energy industry. I personally have loved being a part of this organization for several years, where at every event I find there is someone new to meet, something new to learn and some small way in which I can contribute to furthering this community of amazing females navigating the industry together.
As we move into 2019, three key focal areas for our chapter will be networking, leadership and community. Our board is already hard at work with strategic planning for the year around these cornerstones. We’re excited for our many upcoming networking and educational luncheons, community outreach and volunteering opportunities, annual leadership conference in June, and fun, interactive social events. We also look forward to the continued expansion and improvement of our executive tier program, a sub-group of our chapter which was launched in 2017 as a platform for women at the highest ranks of their profession to network and collaborate with one another.
Whether you are brand-new to WEN or have been part of our community for years, we encourage you to attend an event, bring a friend, speak up, ask questions, and get involved! I look forward to seeing you in 2019!
Monica Messick, 2019 President
Women’s Energy Network, North Texas Chapter
