"Summertime and the Living is Easy"

Dear Members,

Now that we're mostly over the hump of our website and database transition, this is my motto sailing into the summer months!

On behalf of the Global Board and the digital taskforce, I want to again thank you all for your patience while we work out the last few snags of the transition, most importantly resolving the members at large issue. Know that we have a plan in place, so please be on the lookout in your emails for information relative to that fix.

I hope that each of you has taken the time to really engage with networking aspects of our website in order to amplify what WEN does best – network locally and connect globally. I'm certainly looking forward to the second half of the year, as WEN Global already has some excited events lined up in the upcoming months. We've partnered with The Thoughtful Co. to present "Compensation Negotiation 101," which will cover everything from how to navigate asking your manager for more money to what you should be looking for before signing a new employment contract. Additionally, we're pleased once again to sponsor Portia's Lunch at the annual Energy Law Institute for The Foundation for Natural Resources and Energy Law.

I hope you all have a fun and relaxing summer; I know the beach is calling my name! As always, my inbox is always open should you have any questions about WEN.

Andrea Tettleton
WEN Global President
