I’m just going to be cliche and say it: there is so much to be thankful for this year. Family, friends, fresh flowers, the upcoming food extravaganza that is Thanksgiving…I’m sure there are things that don’t start with “f” also, but I was on a roll. Honestly, I’m overwhelmed with the amount of things I’m grateful for, and I’d be lying if I said WWPR and the wealth of inspiration and fun it brings into my life isn’t one of those things.

I might be feeling particularly thankful for WWPR these days because I’m still riding the happiness high that our annual PR Woman of the Year luncheon gives me. If you missed this year’s event, you might not have gotten the full effect of the level of excellence that was in the room, or had a chance to celebrate with our awe-inspiring finalists Kate Perrin and Gloria Rodriguez, or witnessed the reveal of our 2018 Woman of the Year Wendy Hagen. It’s ok, though, we have a pretty awesome video recap for you.

We all know that once Thanksgiving hits, it feels like the year is basically over, but WWPR still has a few things for you to put on the calendar. Do you love us and want to get more involved? We’re accepting applications for the 2019 Board of Directors until November 30! Like cocktails, snacks and holiday socializing with cool people? Join us on December 18 at City Tap House in Dupont for our annual Holiday Party!

Finally, I speak for all of us on the WWPR Board when I say: we’re thankful for all of you. For our members, our sponsors and our partners who make the WWPR community what it is.

Wishing you a very happy Thanksgiving,
