A note from the President
Hello All & Welcome February!
With the month in full swing, there is much to look forward to! Though we may be looking to put the cold weather behind us, Punxsutawney Phil has seen his shadow. According to legend, this means we’re in for six more weeks of winter!
To help stay warm, join us for some outstanding February events. On Monday, February 19th the MWI After Hours team has scheduled an event at Kimp’s Ace Hardware in Howard. Grab a girlfriend (or 2!) and join us for an empowering evening of learning to complete our own around the house to-do lists. Featured demos will include learning how to use the Amy Howard caulk paint and waxes to transform a piece of furniture without sanding or prep work. Also on deck, Plumbing 101: basic plumbing repairs along with what products to use, a run-down on the differences in nuts, bolts & screws & how to use wall anchors to hang pictures and heavy objects. We will also see what power tools might work best for home repairs and how to use them. This promises to be an evening of networking, learning & fun! The event is from 6 pm – 8 pm & includes wine, hors d’oeuvres and door prizes.
Our luncheon meeting on February 21 features Lucy Arendt, Professor of Business Administration-Management, St. Norbert College. The topic is, “Make ‘Em Laugh: Women’s Use of Humor at Work.” Should women use humor at work? Are all types of humor created equally? This presentation will address these questions and more. You will leave with a solid understanding of the do’s and don’ts of using humor at work.

Also, this February, continue to keep an eye out for LinkedIn updates on the MWI Scavenger Hunt. Play along to be entered to win a prize!
Finally, thank you for participating in the Annual Survey! Your input is critical to the success of our organization. The Board will review the results at the February Board meeting and use your feedback to ensure we stay the course in fulfilling Management Women Inc.’s mission of providing Professional Growth and Development of Women by Women.
Stay warm & see you soon!
