Let’s meet at the Boulder Cork on Tuesday, August 23rd to wish BWA a happy birthday.

Our November 5th educational event is “LinkedIn Marketing for Communicators” by Phil Nugent. In May, we presented “10 Ways to Get Published in 2016,” led by Bill Holtsnider and David Dvorkin. Visit our Meeting Notes page for PDFs of both their presentations.

To complement all our formal BWA events, BWA just started a Meetup group, which provides a variety of extra events and get togethers. Sign up for the free BWA Meetup group to learn about these additional professional education and networking events.
