A Letter From Our President

 

          What a great way to start out the term as your EWI Tulsa president. Thank you to Dana Nichols with Cimarex Energy Co.; Jody Davis with Accent Moving & Storage, Inc., Agent for Mayflower Transit, LLC; Judy Russell with ONEOK, Inc.; and Felicia Senter with Tulsa Tech for an awesome installation. You did a great job!
 
          Thank you to the ladies who have chosen to Ride the Waves with me by serving on the board – with your support, the Tulsa Chapter will embody Energy, Wisdom & Integrity. And thank you to our members.  This year my goal is to listen. Listen to you as a member. What can we do to continue to be better? One easy way to communicate is to take our surveys. We listen to your feedback about the meetings and encourage you to send ideas for the future. You have a voice. You should be heard.
 
          Another important tool for communicating is the Connect.  Starting with the next issue, we are committed to sending it the last week of the month. The issue will have the following month's meeting notice embedded so you can RSVP for the monthly meeting right from that email. I hope we can utilize technology more to help streamline our email communications. I am not the most tech savy person, but there is a great team with me. If you have any tech tips, please feel free to pass them along.

Best regards,
Tonya
