WCA events are a great way to network with the best communicators in Central Texas, experience thought-provoking professional development programs and make new friends. You don’t need to be a member to attend; however, as a member you can take advantage of pricing discounts and access exclusive members-only events.


Monthly Meetings

WCA@Lunch provides valuable opportunities for members and guests to learn about the latest communication trends, techniques and technologies from industry leaders.

Careers Over Coffee, Connect Over Cocktails, and Leader Lunch events give members and first-time guests the opportunity to learn and network in small-group settings.

Annual Events

For the past 47 years, WCA has hosted the springtime Banner Brunch, where we award student scholars and recognize leaders in our field for service and accomplishment with Banner Awards.

In October or November, members and guests attend Get Smart, a half-day professional development program featuring expert speakers on a range of communication topics. 

Freelance Austin

Freelance Austin is a WCA special interest group that meets the second Wednesday of each month to discuss a varied range of topics that address the needs and interests of successful freelance professionals.

Visit the Freelance Austin website to learn more about specific events, review project postings, and read freelancer-specific blog posts and other educational resources.
