News about our Inspired Living Expo is good! We are also continuing to sign on new Members! These Members are practitioners and vendors who have gone through ATWE’s application and approval process to join what we like to refer to as our ATWE Family. Our Purpose and Mission is at the forefront of everything we are attempting to accomplish – we are trying to get this right!
Our 2019 Expo booths are filling up, but with plenty of availability left. One of our goals is to offer information and presence from every area of one’s life. This means each holistic, alternative or organic modality, service or product offering has a limited number of booths, divided into sections of the space we will occupy. We do this to honor the publics and vendors ease and comfort. In particular is the need for quieter areas where discussion, mini sessions or readings can take place.
We are hard at work putting more pieces of our not-for-profit organization together. The question in the back of our minds is “What else must be done to fulfill our Mission?” One of the key points of our Mission is to provide a supportive environment for our Members. To help fulfill this part of our Mission, we are organizing ATWE Group meetings where we can connect, share information, answer questions, brainstorm and enjoy a cup of coffee together. Our first Group meeting is this month and we are excited to connect with our Members!
Another way we felt we could honor our Mission for both our Members and the public was to create a Practitioners Class Calendar page on our website. This way, our hard working Members can offer their expertise through classes in their own place of business! This works great for ATWE’s Mission toward educating the public to the alternative possibilities that exist outside of mainstream’s point of reference. ATWE is in no way responsible for the content or actions of our Members outside of ATWE’s Events and Expos.
Our Directory continues to expand its pages of modalities and services with the offerings our expanding number of Members provide. It’s a daunting process, but we think you’re worth it!
We have included a new page on our website entailing the wonderful benefits our Members can expect from us. We welcome potential Members who believe in our Missions goals! The first step is to fill out our Participation Application. If approved, the Membership process begins.
We look forward to the ongoing growth of our organization and new Members who share our enthusiasm for an informed and unified community! We would love to hear from you too! Help us understand better ways of serving your needs. On that note, we are always looking for help within our organization. If you are interested and would like to volunteer some of your time and expertise, we would love to hear from you!
In Gratitude, your ATWE Team
