The Education Committee would like to talk about resilience. Financial, emotional, technician and professional resilience! The word started to replace other words which had dominated our conversations over the last 11 months. Words like: pandemic, unprecedented, remote, and exhausted to name a few. We know that simply turning the calendar doesn’t guarantee that struggles are behind us. Instead we focus on how we will continue, in the face of future challenges and changes with resilience. We are working to create content and materials with this one common thread throughout in 2021. Check out some of the things we are working on to build our resilience in 2021:

– March: Financial Resilience with Bonnie Sewell
– May: Weathering the storm – Live hands on technical training on steep slope shingles
– September: Weathering the storm – Live hands on technical training event
– Building online technical training content/resources
– Expanding discussions on self care, and emotional resilience
– Continuing to partner with events and WIRE for the NWIR book club

The Education Committee meets the second Wednesday of every month at 4PM EST and we welcome all those interested in joining our call. Check the NWIR event calendar for info on our monthly meetings and upcoming events.

We are looking forward to building content that will help foster resilience in 2021.
