Why go to meetings?
  • Speaking to others in your profession helps to keep you current on industry trends, products, services, and technologies.
  • Listening to multiple vetted speakers, over a period of time, greatly enhances your overall knowledge of your profession and industry.
  • Seeing the same people, month to month, allows you to develop strong professional relationships with people in your profession.
  • You may hear about potential job opportunities that otherwise would have been outside your view.
  • Getting involved in these professional meetings allows you to practice leadership among your peers by heading up an event or chairing a committee.
  • Being on the board of an association can enhance your overall professional brand and status within your industry.
  • Being on the board also allows you to give back to the organization by volunteering your time and helping others.

How much does it cost?

Joining WIFS has many benefits. The cost of the membership is absolutely lower than the value that our members receive.

The cost for a National WIFS Membership is $230. The cost of the Denver Chapter Membership is $30. You can check here at any time for your prorated amount.

The cost of lunch is not a profitable expense for the Denver chapter. It covers you lunch, beverage and sometimes the tip for your meal.
