It is my pleasure to begin the October 2021 Carolynn’s Corner by welcoming our newest member, Morgan Burns! Ms. Burns works at Kane Communications Group as the Brand & Creative Director. She is a familiar face at Tempo Racine. Ms. Burns has acted as both a guest and presenter. In addition to her work at Kane Communications, she serves on the Board of Directors for the Society of Marketing Professionals. Ms. Burns wrote in her application that “the women of Tempo Racine are genuinely invested in the advancement of women in Racine.” We agree with you Ms. Burns and are delighted to have you join us.
Tempo Racine is built on three pillars: leadership, mentoring, and networking. A hallmark experience that we all share are the discussions throughout our monthly meetings. Although some discussions may start at Tempo, we know that they don’t end there and often extend well-beyond our time together.
This summer, when I shared the organization’s focus areas, there was an explicit call to enhance member engagement. There are many ways in which this organization can engage its members through continued traditions and by adding new, desired features and opportunities that lead back to our three pillars.
This month, I am pleased to share that our Membership Directory has been relaunched and is available on our website. To access the directory, members must log into their account. Once logged in, the Membership Directory will appear in the menu on the top and left-hand side of the page between About Us and Events. On the Membership Directory page, members will see a list of current members and are able to click on individual profiles. I encourage you to check out the profiles and reconnect with someone.
If you are looking to update your profile, please log into the website and go to the ‘View profile’ option that is listed underneath the blue and white avatar. From there, you can edit your profile and update your privacy settings. Please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with this feature and send your questions and feedback to email@example.com.
I’m looking forward to our meeting in November with our special guests Dr. Bryan Albrecht (Gateway Technical College), Dr. Deborah Ford (UW- Parkside), and Dr. John Swallow (Carthage College).
We’d like to hear from you. Send us your good news, announcements, and more at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let's get out there and advocate, elevate, and accelerate!
President, TEMPO Racine
