Our industry is always known for breaking new ground and creating innovative firsts. The very nature of what we do for a living is about creating solutions for customers and clients to allow them to perform business in ways that haven’t been able to before.
The same is true of the Women in AV group. In 18 months, we’ve done amazing things together with our partners and elevated the women in our industry in incredible ways. We are closing in on 500 members in our LinkedIn group on five continents, we’ve launched our website womeninav.com, toured with the Almo Pro A/V E4 AV Tour around the country, held webinars and started a mentoring program. Not to mention, the overwhelming success WAVE experienced at InfoComm 2012 with a luncheon for 70 that sold out a month in advance, a reception that drew over 100 people and an awesome Tweet-Up with the Drunk Unkles band!!
We’re ready to create another first!! Let’s ALL celebrate the holidays and another year of successful AV business together, women and men!! That’s right, it’s the holidays and we want everyone to get together wherever you are located and we’ll connect virtually with each other through Twitter using the hashtag #WAVE. We’ll have cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and of course, FUN contests!!!
