Letter from the President


We are well into 2023 and there is so much happening behind the scenes! I have been teasing about some swag possibilities, commemorative items, and celebratory chapter event suggestions, so let me dish out some details.

If you are not a member, please consider joining WiNUP so you don't miss out on all of the fun 100 year activities!!!

100th Anniversary Shirts

T-shirts with the 100th Anniversary logo are now available for purchase! There are 2 long sleeve and 2 short sleeve options. Please visit WiNUP Apparel ( to order yours today! Shipping is free! (Please note that the link may be blocked on some company computers so make sure to open on your personal computer if the link does not work.)

Chapter Anniversary Party!

I want to encourage all chapters to have a WiNUP Anniversary Party. Now is a good time to begin regathering for in person meetings and events (if you haven’t already done so) and a celebration seems like the perfect excuse. I would like to personally challenge each chapter to invite 3 potential members to your celebrations. A commemorative party favor will be coming from International in June. Make sure you take a picture and submit it to the newsletter!

2023 Conference

Registration is open for the 2023 WiNUP Annual Conference. I hope you will join me in Niagara Falls, NY in September. Our conference will feature great speakers, professional and personal development and networking opportunities. I invite you to come celebrate this milestone anniversary with us! WiNUP's 2023 International Conference Centennial Celebration is the place to be in '23!

Make sure you follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn.
