Greetings WICT Southern California members and future members!
Welcome to the Women in Cable Telecommunications Southern California Chapter. We had a stellar year in 2012 and we are excited to kick off another successful year in 2013! In 2012 we were honored with the Inspire and Others Will Follow Award for Chapter excellence. Thank you to our Immediate Past President, Sophie Harris. I would like to personally thank Sophie for her hard work and dedication to the WICT Southern California Board. I am truly inspired and look forward to building upon the great successes Sophie achieved for our chapter.
As we look to 2013, we have a lot of exciting opportunities and programs on our schedule. We kicked off the year with our Membership Welcome where attendees were able to connect with industry colleagues as well as learn about all the great benefits of becoming a WICT Southern California Member. In the Spring, we are looking at hosting our very first Tech It Out event where we will explore TV Everywhere and its impact within our industry.
Mentoring will be a large focus for us this year as we believe mentors are essential to the growth and development of our members. In May, we will present our Professional Mentoring Lunch where we will host a panel of mentors followed by a speed mentoring session at each table. We will also continue with our successful WICT Southern California Mentoring Program. Last year was a record year for us in participation and I know this year will be even better! The 2013 Mentoring Program will kick off in late Spring so be on the lookout for further details on how to apply.
We have a lot of great opportunities planned and this is just a brief preview of what we have in store for 2013. Please be sure to “Like” our Facebook page to stay informed of all the exciting activities we have going on. Thank you for your continued support; you truly are what makes the Southern California Chapter so special!
