The Coalition introduces a new
Dear Board Member,
We're so excited for 2011 as the Coalition springs into action working harder than ever to address issues of concern to women in our industries and to create more networking opportunities.
For our first event of the new year, we are starting our new series, Cross OrganizationMeet & Greets! This is an opportunity for two or three of our member organizations to get to know each other better as a whole and one-on-one through a social networking evening. Our first Meet & Greet is to introduce members of LPTW (the League of Professional Theatre Women, our founding organization), and NYWIFT (New York Women in Film & Television). Although these organizations do have some members in common, this is a great opportunity for theatre folk and media folk to mingle.
Our first Cross Organization Meet and Greet will be Monday, January 10, 2011, from 6-8 p.m. at Pranna, 79 Madison Avenue (between 28th and 29th Streets).www.prannarestaurant.com We will be downstairs in a private room. Hors d'oeuvres will be provided, and there is a cash bar.
This event is specifically for members of LPTW and NYWIFT. Members of LPTWand NYWIFT, please join us (this event is standing in for both organization's monthly networking night)!
If you are not a member of NYWIFT but would like to join, there will be a special deal that night: $100 off on the initiation fee! So come join become a member of NYWIFT if you've been planning to but haven't yet and you can start your membership with a fabulous networking night and save $100!
Email us to let us know you're planning to attend, and which organization you are a part of (or whether you plan to join NYWIFT that night).
Collaboration Award Event
We are known for our Collaboration Award, which honors two or more women from our different organizations, who collaborate on a work of merit. In March we will have an event to celebrate the recipients. You can learn more about the award here.
