THE SWACU NEWSLETTER SPRING 2021 People who know me know I love baseball. I love everything about it! I love being in the stadium cheering for my team (Texas Rangers), the sound a home run ball makes as it comes off the bat, the food, the smells, the songs we sing and dance to...everything. It makes me happy! Baseball season often reminds me of how different the sport is compared to others. I don’t find it to be slow, like some would claim. Instead, I say it takes concentration, dedication, focus and patience for players and fans to ride out 9 innings to a win! It takes great physical and mental conditioning for the players to make it through 162 games each season. They could not persevere without deep
CORE strength. Similarly, SWACU is about to embark on a project that will require intense concentration, dedication, focus and patience for our staff, with the result being a huge win for both our staff and our members. As mentioned last quarter, we are changing our CORE operating system that will increase our technology efficiencies while allowing us to offer even more products/services and assist our members faster. We cannot wait. This project kicked off internally with our staff March 24th and we couldn’t be more excited to get the next 12 months behind us so you can see how strong our CORE has become.
We know it will be a Home Run for everyone!! Stay tuned!
