Events Committee

Work alongside your peers to help conceive, plan and execute events. Our events are typically sponsored and hosted by member firms so you can get involved as an individual - or coordinate with your firm to host an event. From educational forums to networking events, we are always looking for great ideas. Event-planning skills desirable but not essential.

The committee meets monthly either in-person or via conference call. Co-chaired by board members Nicole Clopton ([email protected] and Naila Makhdumi ([email protected]). For more information, contact the committee co-chairs.

Corporate Outreach Membership & Rising Star

Help identify and target financial service firms that could benefit from membership in the WBC and/or firms that would complement our membership roster. We tap into the WBC’s broad network, prepare presentation material, educate senior executives about member benefits, and initiate onboarding of both new corporate and individual members. We also assist current corporate member firms with their own outreach and networking events and share best practices.

Most committee work is flexible and can be completed as the member’s schedule permits. Time commitment is 2 to 4 hours per month including a monthly meeting in-person or by conference call.
