Community-Wide Events

Newsmakers Award Luncheon 
Each year, the Tulsa Chapter hosts the Newsmakers luncheon to present outstanding, selected women communicators with the Newsmakers Award and the Saidie Lifetime Achievement Award.

Special Workshop
Each year, the Tulsa Chapter offers an opportunity for professional development for area communicators. Recent topics have included social media and maintaining personal contact in a technical world.  

AWC Tulsa Open House
One social event per year is hosted for members and non-members alike. This generally happens in August and is one of the best ways to network with communicators and learn more about our Chapter! 

Member-Only Events

W3 – Women, Wisdom and Wine
AWC holds networking socials, called W3, throughout the year and is a members-only perk. These events are member favorites — a time to kick back after the work day, visit with long-time AWC friends and meet new friends, talk business or what’s in the news, make great connections, and share creative ideas!

This is one of the best perks our chapter offers for the best deal and place for you to meet and chat with the best communications pros in town. 

It’s where we connect with relaxing time and wine (and light food) to talk shop and share ideas. It’s fun, it’s casual, it’s a friendly way to end the work day.  We’re looking forward to seeing you then! Questions?  Co-chairs Chelsea McGuire Kester, 918.695.6958 and Paula Cortner, 918.671.6699 are happy to answer them for you.

Holiday Party
Each year, members gather for the annual holiday party at a member’s home.  The holiday party includes the AWC yearly fundraiser and collection of books for Anderson Elementary School. The Tulsa Chapter provides new and gently used books to enhance the school’s library, as well as the donation of funds for the additional purchase of new Scholastic Books for Anderson students. Each of these children will go home with a new book for the holidays.
