If you're looking to start the new year off with a "new you," New York Women in Communications (NYWICI) can help. We've put together a list of easily attainable resolution ideas that can benefit you personally and professionally. Tackle one (or more) of these resolutions in 2018:
Network, Network, Network
NYWICI offers a variety of networking events throughout the year. The best part is that as a member, you can enjoy admission to events at a discounted rate. Not a member of NYWICI? Join today! Take a look at our event calendar and make a point to attend at least one new event this year.
Join us on Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2018, for a free members-only salon "10 Top Tips to Effectively Convert Visitors to Customers", featuring NYWICI Board Member and Managing Director of Lizard Media, Liz Kressel. Another great event to start out at would be our "New Year, New You", hosted by the NYWICI Young Professionals committee on Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2018. We're also excited to have another free member salon on Wednesday, Feb. 7, 2018, "Gender Bias in Advertising", featuring Mary Ellen Holden from the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media.
Volunteer to serve on one of NYWICI's many committees. It's a great opportunity to make connections and practice the skills needed to advance your career. Help recruit new members (and network in the process), or join the Young Professionals Committee's book club. We have something for everyone this upcoming year.

Apply for a Scholarship
If financial support and the incredible network our scholarship winners have access to sounds appealing, then apply for a NYWICI Scholarship. Applications are due Jan. 26, 2018.
Pay it Forward
From simple gestures, like giving up your seat on the subway, to volunteering your time to support a good cause, there are endless ways to give back. This year, consider donating to the NYWICI. Your tax-deductible donation will benefit our scholarship program, as well as the Membership Empowerment Grant program. Pay it forward today, large or small, to make a difference in the lives of women in pursuit of an education and a career.
And we're so excited to announce the launch of our NYWICI Zazzle store! Check it out if you're looking for the perfect gift. Strapped for cash after the holidays? Volunteer your time instead. How about reading scholarship applications in February?
Recruit One Friend to Join NYWICI
Everyone says two is better than one. Recruit one of your friends to join and enjoy all of the benefits together!
One of the most inspiring days of the year for us is our annual Matrix Awards. Attendees always walk away feeling inspired and ready to realize their own potential.
