Energy professional network feature: Desk and Derrick Club of Wichita Falls

Each month we will feature various ADDC energy association professional networks located across the U.S. and Canada. This week we are featuring the Desk and Derrick Club of Wichita Falls, Texas. Wichita Falls is located northwest of Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX. The following is from Sheila McGaughey, editor of the Desk and Derrick Dateline, January 2020. 

Desk and Derrick Club of Wichita Falls monthly bulletin

Welcome 2020! Hope your holidays were the merriest and brightest, full of family, love and good cheer! Hope your 2020 will be full of blessings as well!

As we begin a new year, I challenge each of you to step out of your comfort zone and try something different. Sign up for a committee that you’ve never done before, or better yet, sit down and write an article for the bulletin. You will amaze yourself at what you can do once you get started. Don’t be afraid of making a mistake, mistakes are a part of life. If you are making mistakes, then you are trying new things, learning, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. It’s how we mature; it’s how we grow! Plus, there is always another “seasoned” member to guide you – if you need it. So, let’s take on 2020 with “challenge accepted”! And, I hope somewhere over the next year you amaze yourself! 

The Desk and Derrick Club of Wichita Falls Board meets the first Tuesday of the month and members are welcome to attend. Interested in joining this educational and professional network?
