We all know that DC summers bring the heat, so WWPR is bringing a little something to help you beat it. From our upcoming events planning panel to our summer workout series, we’ve got opportunities for you to grab a cocktail, soak up some knowledge, and sweat with new (and old) friends.

We stepped into the summer season with our quarterly Rise & Shine event with MGM National Harbor’s Alexia Baillow who reminded us all how powerful our voices can be when we bring our diverse, unique experiences to the work we do and the causes we’re passionate about. If you missed Alexia’s words of wisdom, you can read Stephanie Wight’s recap here.

Want to check out a DC hot spot and hear from event planning experts who’ve worked with Hollywood, heads of state, and music icons to create events to remember? Join us on July 19 at Dacha Beer Garden for our annual Event Planning Panel. PS: If you want to make a day of it, you can also use our special 20% WWPR member discount to register for Capitol Communicator’s PR Summit DC (details in our June newsletter).

And if you’re like me and things aren’t real until they’re on your calendar, save the date for our 29th Annual PR Woman of the Year luncheon on Friday, November 9 at the Fairmont Hotel. Nominations will open soon, so start thinking about the women in your life who should be in the running for this year’s award!

On top of all this in-person fabulousness, don’t miss the opportunity to connect with us in the digital world. You can find exciting news about our pro bono client Sitar Arts Center, get to know our new Membership co-chair, and check out Ariana Solis Gomez’s series on diversity and inclusion in the communications industry.

Stay cool and I hope to see you on July 19!

2018 WWPR President
