Welcome to the WWPR Blog
By 2010 President, Debbie Friez

Welcome to the Washington Women in Public Relations (WWPR) blog! We are excited to implement this blog as one of the newest features of our re-designed website—a project that has been in the works for about two years. Through this blog we hope to add an additional touch point for our members.

I’d like to thank some key people, who helped to make this communication possible. First of all, Lauren Lawson, past president, and Akilah Luke, past website chair, who led the search for a website designer and developer. Committee members Deborah Brody and Joan Coyle took on the hard work of writing a majority of the copy. Sherri Core, Lauren Lawson and Erin Wendel were instrumental in reviewing all stages of the development.

Most importantly, this website could not exist without WWPR website chair Kate Barrett. Her knowledge, skill and time brought everything together and kept us all on a schedule.

In the coming weeks, several board members will be contributing posts. We will also use the blog to keep you informed of new information (like events, updates and job postings) between our monthly newsletters.

We hope you will consider contributing to the WWPR blog. What topics would you like to see covered? Do you have any recommendations for guest bloggers? How can WWPR better serve you and the Washington, DC PR community? Ideas welcome!

Please send any suggestions or comments for the WWPR blog to web@wwpr.org. Thanks!
