As I focus on 2024, I would be remiss to not reflect on all that was accomplished in 2023 and in years past. I'm grateful to those who have served as Past President, especially Andrea Tettleton, who has taught me so much this past year. Women's Energy Network (WEN) has grown into what it is today because of the many volunteers sitting across our 25 chapters and because of those involved on the WEN Global Board.

It's important to remember why the Women's Energy Network was created, and to hold fast to the original vision and mission of the organization while continuing to transition into a more strategic board. We want WEN to be the premier global organization that educates, attracts, retains, and develops professionals working across the energy value chain. 

In recent years, WEN Global has begun to transition into a strategic board, providing more chapter support, transparency between the global board and its chapters, and recently establishing a new partnership agreement with the WEN Foundation. Over the next few months our primary focus will be on our biennial Conference, April 28 - 30, in Atlanta, Georgia. This year marks our 30th Anniversary, and we cannot think of a better way to celebrate than to get together for a few days of educational sessions covering leadership, legal and regulatory matters, diversity, equity & inclusion, and much more.

I hope to see you in Atlanta!
