Fall is my favorite season, hands down. You’ve got low humidity (important for curly girls like me), the multi-colored leaves (as long as I don’t have to rake them), and, of course, fall fashion (because who doesn’t love layers and boots?!). There’s also something about fall professionally that gets me every year—this feeling of ramping up after the summer lull and pushing to end the year on a high note before the holidays.

My love for fall also extends to some of my favorite WWPR events that happen during this season. From our annual media roundtable to the celebration of excellence that is our 29th Annual PR Woman of the Year luncheon, there are opportunities to keep that end-of-year surge of energy going while surrounding yourself with women who uplift and inspire you. We’re also kicking off the season with a video workshop, in partnership with Curley Company and ShortKlips, at Airbus that you’re not going to want to miss.

Speaking of women who inspire, nominations are open for this year’s PR Woman of the Year awards and the deadline is Friday, October 5 at 11:59 p.m. ET! So as we all get ready for boots weather—and splurge on cute NYFW-inspired outfits—I hope you’ll take some time to show some love for a woman in your life who exemplifies what it means to communicate, collaborate and conquer in this industry.

Happy fall!
