Message From the President

Welcome from the SoCal WICT Chapter Board!

It goes without saying how incredibly busy everyone is, as we are all faced with the ongoing challenge of balancing work and life. We recognize that many of you are in transition between jobs, while others are trying to do the work of two or more people as companies are pressured to cut costs. The reason we understand is because we have board members who are experiencing the same situations.

This is exactly why we strive to make it easy to stay current in our ever changing industry. Whether that means understanding the rapidly evolving technology, keeping up with demands of leadership or supporting the broader needs of our community. SoCal WICT has you covered!

We are very excited about the remainder of 2015. Before I share all the great events we have planned for the balance of the year, here’s a quick recap of the year to date:

We started off with our premier networking event, the Membership Welcome. Followed by Webinar Wednesday focused on the transition from Analog to Digital Media. Soon after we hosted our signature Mentoring Lunch where we kicked off our annual Mentoring Program. Then there was the Tech-it-Out event featuring a talented panel of Over-The-Top (OTT) experts. And let’s not forget about the two Coffee Talk events held for the early risers in the group.

Remaining this year is the not-to-be-missed Leadership Luncheon featuring acclaimed author Marianne Schnall, Making Strides breast cancer walk, the fabulous LEA Awards and finally our yearend Tech-it- Out Holiday event hosted this year by General Assembly.

We are confident that you will find educational and networking value in each of the SoCal WICT events. Therefore we encourage you to invest in yourself by joining us at an upcoming event. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Traci Gerth
President, WICT SoCal Chapter
