This is Alys ~ your newly appointed Events & Opportunities Coordinator and Webmaster!
My thoughts turn to cliches and maxims today: many hands make light work, jump in and get your feet wet, practice makes perfect, patience is a virtue, and tomorrow is another day!
Let me say thank you for allowing me to help out behind-the-scenes in this great organization. I'm excited to work with our newly elected Board ~ check 'em out on the Officers Page.
I hope to start creating some virtual opportunities for us during the pandemic ~ I'll also help behind-the-scenes with any in-person events. This is a good opportunity to divulge to you all that my pre-existing rare lung disease and chronic heart failure mean that I'm under several doctors' orders to not be out in public until I can get a highly effective (tested, proven, etc) vaccine for COVID-19.
Until that happy day, I'll be focusing, as Events & Opportunities Coordinator, on some virtual events & opportunities, like Round Robin Open Mics via Zoom (perhaps once a month!) and hosting a special PSI interview series on @theroundtable, which is the podcast that Sarah E. and I host for our 501c3 nonprofit arts organization, Community • Education • Arts (CEArts).
As for my role as Webmaster, today's the first time I've logged in to the website to explore it ~ may I say that Sarah E. and Chuck have been doing a GREAT job, and I consider myself their "Assistant" until I can get as savvy with the website as are they!
Back to those cliches ~ many hands do indeed make light work, so please feel free to contact me or any of the Officers if any of you have ideas/want to help with our PSI Events & Opportunities (both in-person and virtual). And, patience is indeed a virtue, so please be patient with me as I learn the PSI ropes!
