WWPR 2019 President, Senior Governmental and Political Outreach Associate Director, American Society of Anesthesiologists

As the fall season kicks off, I know everyone’s schedule suddenly becomes busy — including WWPR’s schedule of events. So this month, I’m going to ask you to do three simple things:

As you may have seen, we have decided to do a modest increase in our member dues, effective October 1. We’ve made this change to accommodate an increase in the costs of running our programming. It comes after more than five years without any change in membership pricing. But to better ensure that WWPR programming we lead is useful and valued, we are doing a survey of our membership. Please take 5 minutes to fill out this simple 12-question survey – we want to hear directly from you, our members.  Your responses will help us shape our upcoming events for the next few months and years!  

We will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of our fall signature event, the Woman of the Year Awards, on Friday, November 15. Tickets — and sponsorship opportunities — are available now.  You will not want to miss this event where we will recognize a woman who is leading the field of communications, while also looking back at 30 years of previous honorees. In honor of the anniversary, we are recognizing “Pearls of Wisdom” throughout the celebration.

The Woman of the Year Awards is just one of our events scheduled for the rest of the year, and a few more will be added soon. So whether you’ve been waiting for our Media Roundtable, want access to the exclusive senior-level communicators breakfast, or just want to network at our holiday party, save the date for an event with WWPR before the end of 2019.
