I am delighted to let you know that our region has been selected as a Women in AV (WAVE) pilot chapter!
If you aren’t familiar with WAVE, I invite you to visit WomenInAV.com. Our group mission is to empower women in the AV industry through collaboration, research, mentoring and networking opportunities. Our goal is to develop women leaders within our industry and to promote AV as an industry of choice. There are no membership fees, and, as a woman in the AV industry, you are automatically already a WAVE! You can participate in our LinkedIn group discussions, follow us on Twitter and join other WAVE women and men for various events and webinars. Next up – a WAVE webinar celebrating a few of our industry leaders during AV Week 2013 (October 13-19, 2013) – stay tuned for more info!
Over the course of this past year, we also identified a need for WAVE activities at the local level. This came from requests from women, just like you, who were interested in networking and meeting other WAVEs in their local area. As a result, WAVE introduced a pilot local chapter program to help launch the initiative. We are proud to announce seven pilot chapters including London, Orlando, Minneapolis, Baltimore, Dallas/Ft. Worth, New York City and Salt Lake City!
As the Chapter Leader for the region, I would like to personally invite you to join our local WAVE chapter. We will be announcing a schedule of events and activities shortly, including quarterly meetings, an annual event, networking opportunities and more. I’ve attached an FAQ with some additional information you may find helpful, but should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
I do hope you’ll consider joining our WAVE chapter. I am confident you will find it a rewarding and meaningful endeavor.
Your WAVE Chapter Leader
