NAWIC Offers Opportunities to Further Your Education

By Dove Sifers-Putman, CBT, NAWIC Vice President

How are you furthering your education? Have you attended your region Forum? Is your chapter providing education for your career, leadership or professional development? These are a just a few ways to further your education as a NAWIC member.

Did you know that you can learn different types of lien laws, how to protect your business from fraud, team building, how to interact with different people, OSHA training, leadership training and more? NAWIC strives to provide education that you can use in your chapter, your business and your every day life. NAWIC encourages its members to step out of the box and gain education that can help them achieve promotions at work. We encourage you to step into the leadership role in your chapter and even at your job.

Don’t forget that the NAWIC board has been having leadership workshops throughout the year via Free Conference Call. If you were unable to participate, you can find this information on the NAWIC website at > Toolbox > Podcasts or YouTube Channel.

What better way is there to gain education than by making plans to attend the Annual Meeting and Education Conference in Anaheim, Calif., August 16-19? President Connie Leipard, CIT and President-Elect Catherine Schoenenberger have worked diligently to offer education, leadership training, professional development, and more at this event. Our keynote speaker will be Aimee Cohen, author of “Woman Up! Overcome the Seven Deadly Sins that Sabotage Your Success.” There will be professional seminars on topics such as How to Deliver Extraordinary Customer Service, OSHA’s Role in the New Administration, Active Shooter and Workplace Violence Preparedness, Applied Situational Leadership, and more. Of course we will also have Association workshops such as Chapter Leadership Training/Mock Board Meeting, NAWIC National Committee Speed Networking, PR/Marketing and Membership, WIC Week, NEF and NFSF. Finally, we can’t forget the networking opportunities and friends that you make while attending NAWIC events.

Become a NAWIC member, and then attend chapter meetings, region events and the Annual Meeting and Education Conference to further your education. You could become the next leader in your chapter, your business or your community.
