Kick Off 2013 With WWPR! 

Kick off the new year with a great networking opportunity at the WWPR Annual Meeting & Luncheon!  The event will feature keynote speaker Geoff Livingston, a leading social media voice, author and marketing specialist.  Livingston will guide attendees through a journey of lessons learned based on the influence of social change efforts and will examine the importance of staying up to speed on the next generation of media technology.

This event is also the opportunity for members to vote in the 2013 board slate and witness the formal induction. Interested in getting more involved in 2013 - this event is a great opportunity to met the new board and learn more about committees and projects!

Lunch will be a seated two-course affair including a special take-home dessert, created specifically for WWPR.  On behalf of Vocus, all attendees will receive a copy of Geoff's recent book, Marketing in the Round.  A book-signing will be held following the luncheon.
