Events

WCA monthly 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 get access to exclusive members-only events. See the calendar.

Monthly events

WCA@Lunch & WCA@Night, WCA’s alternating monthly programming, provides an opportunity for members and guests to learn about the latest communication trends from industry leaders and ask questions about new techniques and technologies in our field. In 2016, WCA@Lunch will be held in January, March, May, July, September and December, while WCA@Night will be held in February, June, August and November.

Leader Lunches provide WCA members rare opportunities to meet and learn from women who have achieved outstanding accomplishments in their fields and made lasting contributions to their local community.

Careers Over Coffee and Connect Over Cocktails events, where members and guests can discuss career and life in a small group setting.

Annual events

In April or May, our organization hosts Banner Brunch, where we award student scholars and recognize leaders in our field for service and accomplishment. In October or November, members and guests attend Get Smart, our half-day professional development program. In 2017, Banner Brunch will be Saturday, April 8 and Get Smart will be held later in the fall.

Freelance Austin

Also be sure to check out Freelance Austin events. Freelance Austin is a WCA special interest group that meets the second Wednesday of each month to discuss a range of topics designed to address the many challenges of being a successful freelance professional. If you’re not a member of WCA, you may still attend Freelance Austin meetings.
