2. Discover the benefits of joining Women in the Channel & how to join
Listen to Women in the Channel President Nancy Ridge discuss the massive success and growth we've experienced in just two years as well as what what Women in the Channel can do for you. While you may have read about the benefits on the website, at the WiC Networking event, you'll hear real-life stories on how we're moving and shaking this industry together. Nancy will cover opportunities you have to both professionally and personally grow with WiC, as well as how easy it is to get started and get involved. 
3. Network and discover more about the state of women in our industry 
As is a tradition, we will be performing an anonymous, live poll at the event. The poll is a great way to ask questions regarding common goals, hurdles, and triumphs women have in our industry— and view LIVE results of the sampled answers.  
In addition, we'll be participating in round table discussions with key questions, MC'd by Bita Milanian, VP of Marketing for Women in the Channel, and moderated by Women in the Channel Board members. At your round table, you are bound to learn something new from peers and meet other women who may become new business contacts and friends. 
4. Learn about Women in the Channel website and tools available
Check out the WiC website on the big screen as you're guided on a tour by Nancy and Nicole Hayward, Board Member / Committee Chair - Technology. They'll review where you can read the latest news, find out the state of our finances, go about joining a committee, and become a blogger if you're interested! 
5. It's Free!
You or your business have invested the money to get you to Las Vegas for the Channel Partners Conference and Expo; why not capitalize on the opportunity to its fullest? This event is chalk full of opportunities, fun, food, drinks, and a raffle supported by our sponsors— all for free. We hope to see you there!
