WIPP 2015 Annual Dinner Celebration
The Willard InterContinental, Washington, DC
Tuesday, July 14
We’ve had an exciting year at WIPP! With your help and the assistance of our partners we were victorious in our efforts to improve the Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Procurement Program with the addition of Sole Source Authority. A big win that will increase contracting opportunities for women business owners. We also successfully launched WIPP’s Federal Contracting Certificate Program and our new National Directory of Women-Owned Small Businesses in the contracting arena. WIPP continued to provide top quality education and events focused on helping women grow their businesses while also ensuring our members had access to leadership and advocacy opportunities to enhance the visibility of your companies.
It is now time to celebrate these achievements and many more at WIPP’s 2015 Annual Dinner Celebration, held on July 14, 2015 from 6:30pm to 10:00pm at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel in Washington, D.C.
At this event, we will also be honoring WIPP’s Co-Founder and President Barbara Kasoff, who has announced her retirement. Barbara has been an unstoppable force for over 14 years, establishing WIPP in 2001 to ensure women business owners had a voice and a seat at the table to impact change in our nation’s capital.
Please join us at WIPP’s 2015 Annual Dinner Celebration as we highlight WIPP’s successes, share big news of upcoming events and programs at WIPP, hear from fantastic speakers and honor our fearless leader, Barbara Kasoff, for her many years of service!
