Banner Brunch

In a break with 47 years of tradition, with the well-being of our members and guests in mind, WCA has cancelled Banner Brunch 2020 due to the COVID19 pandemic. We believe this will have been the right decision in hindsight.

You can still help us support a scholarship for local communications students by donating to our scholarship fund directly this year!

Originally named for banner headlines in newspapers, Banner Brunch attracts approximately 300 Austin communications professionals each year to reconnect, network, and brunch while celebrating WCA’s Banner Award honorees and Jo Caldwell Meyer Scholarship recipients.

Sponsors

Thank you so much to this year’s Banner Brunch sponsors! If you’re interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact our VP of Development at development@wcaustin.org.

Banner Brunch 2019 >>>
An Incredible Homecoming.

Banner Brunch 2019 was celebrated as a homecoming honoring WCA’s 90-year history and the remarkable trailblazers, leaders, and members who created the organization we call home.

WCA’s 2019 distinctive honorees shared their stories, what inspired them to push past barriers, and how they reached for new professional and personal heights within the industry and the Austin community.

Hear more from our past honorees on WCA’s Youtube channel.

Colette serves as as testament of being a nontraditional leader, a leader with care and compassion. It’s your care that will carry you forward in your success.
