When you join AWC, you become a part of a national network of highly motivated and involved professionals who share common interests and goals. Nowhere is the strength of that network more evident than at the local level. Through our monthly programs, educational workshops and informal gatherings, Tulsa Chapter members provide each other with invaluable professional support. But just as important as the career benefits are the personal friendships that develop over time. Those relationships are the real measure of our strength.
The communications disciplines represented within AWC include: advertising, communications law, communications management, computer/Internet communications, education, fund development, graphic design, multimedia communications, photography, print and broadcast journalism, public relations, publishing, radio, television, marketing/sales, technical communications and video and television production.
At the national level, AWC provides members access to the latest information on trends and technology and to leadership and skills training. Through the online membership directory and professional conferences, members can make national and international connections.
Monthly programs cover a variety of topics in the communications profession as well as topics in leadership, women’s issues, human relations, and other subjects of interest to members. Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month.
Informal gatherings and special activities provide additional opportunities for members to get together. An annual event that members look forward to is the Tulsa Chapter Holiday Party, as well as the quarterly W3’s — that is — Wine, Women and Wisdom — after hours at the home of a member.
Website and monthly newsletters keep local members informed of programs, events and chapter news.
Annual membership directory lists all active members and serves as a great networking tool.
Community outreach is an important mission of the Tulsa Chapter and takes shape in a variety of ways including financial support, volunteer service and educational programs.
