Executive Office Update -- Mary Engelman, Deputy Director

February 2021

Last week Governor Whitmer extended our "working from home" mandate to May 1st. March 2021 will mark one year of us teleworking.  I, personally, have enjoyed some components of this new way of working, but I have also had some challenges.  Stress, IT issues, noise during meetings, weird eating habits…ugh, the list goes on!  After our first Virtual 2020 Holiday Party, leadership realized that we need to get together more often than a few times a year.  Thus, we are announcing Monthly Connect - a voluntary virtual program at MDCR.  Monthly Connect will be an opportunity for us to spend an hour and connect on themed topics designed to support.  The goal is to add value to you on a professional level.  You may also decide to integrate what you learn into your personal lives.  Monthly Connect will begin this month, so please watch for the flyer.  I hope you can join us for it is a joy to connect with you and catch up.
