As we close 2017, the WICT Philadelphia Board would like to extend our best wishes for a happy holiday season and new year.  We are grateful for your partnership and thank you for being a part of WICT Greater Philadelphia.  From your support and involvement we have continued to evolve to meet the needs of our record 1250+ members.  Thank you for your involvement, the commitment of our many volunteers, and the support of our sponsors.

In review, 2017 has been another outstanding year for our chapter.   In addition to offering outstanding programming and events, we also provided 21 scholarships to industry events and training programs to our members, 5 scholarships to female college students pursuing degrees in STEAM and  raised and donated $10,000 to Girls Inc. of Greater Philadelphia and Southern NJ at our phenomenal WICT Philly Gives Back event.

Our Board of Directors are already working on creating outstanding programming for 2018 to develop your leadership skills, grow your network, connect with mentors, and gain industry knowledge through our events and education programs.  We also look forward to continuing to better the industry for the future through our College STEAM Scholarship Program and partnership with Girls, Inc.  Please look out for the monthly Scoop and check our website for the most up to date information and ways to get involved, through attendance, volunteering, and sponsorship.

We could not do this without our incredible sponsors from 2017. We thank you, none of this is possible without your support, and we appreciate you and of course look forward to your continued support in 2018.

On behalf of myself, our National Organization, and your Board of Directors thank you for joining us on our mission to provide strategic and effective leadership development through Women in Cable Telecommunications – Greater Philadelphia Chapter, and we look forward to a spectacular year!
