The West Des Moines Chapter of ABWA hosted a networking and training event at Felix and Oscar's in Urbandale on February 23. The members of the three Des Moines area leagues were invited to attend to learn about the recent updates to WIN and creating their own ABWA Experience.
Facilitators, Kathy Layton and Jen Childress, encouraged the attendees to add ABWA.org to their smart phones by downloading the ABWA app. Over the last several months, WIN, the Women's Instructional Network has been updated to be more inline with current technology and websites. One of the major new features is the ability to set up calendar appointments, create agendas and minutes all electronically using the WIN site. Additional enhancements will be added later this year. The group worked through the online training session, Creating Your ABWA Experience and were encouraged to complete all the forms and worksheets after the meeting.
