President's Message: Saving the Best For Last

Posted By Candace Waterman, WIPP President & CEO, Wednesday, December 4, 2019
Updated: Tuesday, December 3, 2019

There is a saying in the golf community: It isn't just how you drive, it's how you arrive. As we start the culmination of 2019--the end of not just another year, but another decade--we at Team WIPP are starting to realize this is one year for the record books. 


Our flourishing grassroots community, with a central heartbeat network of our WIPP Members, continues to showcase how women entrepreneurs are pivotal to the growth of our national economy. It has been a year when the hashtag #womenleaders meant more than ever before. 

NASDAQ Nov 29, 2019


This was front and center last weekend, as our team celebrated Small Business Saturday, including ringing the closing bell at Nasdaq last Friday. This week our team is wrapping up our work on the Small Business Saturday Coalition, an always-growing grassroots network of more than 600 national, state, and local associations across the country and in U.S. territories that support strengthening local economies through the Shop Small® Movement.


From the local and regional engagement to our off-the-charts advocacy accomplishments on Capitol Hill, despite the partisan uphill battle, learning to be an effective advocate is a gift that keeps on giving. Please read WIPP Chief Advocate Ann Sullivan's blog post and look forward to next week's 2019 Holiday Recess Guide, where you can take action to ensure your legislators know what is important to women business owners. 


Not quite sure what is happening in Congress? For a limited time, we are opening our final WIPP Policy Update webinar, a WIPP Member Benefit, to everyone for free registration. Join us next Wednesday, December 11 to learn what to expect in 2020. 


Not quite sure why you aren’t a WIPP Member yet? Non-members can register for the upcoming Managing Your LinkedIn Content in 2020 webinar with featured guest and speaker Jennifer Brown, and you can apply that registration to a new WIPP Membership! And you can always join us for the monthly WIPP Membership webinar to learn more about why you should join and how to leverage your existing membership.  

As WIPP continues to charge into our 19th year of leading advocacy, community, and education for women business owners, I hope you are a part of the journey.
