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 bimonthly 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 the 2017-2018 term, WCA@Lunch will be held in July, September, January, and May, while WCA@Night will be held in November and March.

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 was held Saturday, April 8. Get Smart will be held on Friday, October 27, 2017 from 12:30pm to 8pm at the Westin Austin Downtown.
