Activities slated for 2020-2021

WISE Members:
As we end the year of 2020, we want to once again thank our core members who have provided activities and/or participated in support of those events throughout the year. Congrats to ASSP GSJC – WISE Section for receiving a 2020 ChapterWise Platinum Distinction award. As we begin 2021, we want to announce a few changes to the Board and discuss the plans for the upcoming year and past months of 2020.

Due to the Shelter in Place, some events were moved to virtual events, and as such, we appreciate those who are speaking on behalf of WISE and/or for a WISE event through this media. For the upcoming Fall PDC, we have been advised by the Executive Committee that it will not be in person.

There are several activities to get involved in, and we are open to using more input in hosting or participating in these events. From our Survey in August, we were asked to have monthly networking events. Every 21st of the month, we have a WISE event posted and published on and the

Mighty Networks as well as LinkedIn.

‘Tis the season of joy and happiness and celebrating the year with friends and colleagues. And while 2020 has been a year full of challenges for all of us, it’s still important to spend time together for no other reason than to laugh and enjoy the relationships we’ve all created within ASSP and WISE.
That’s why we hope you’ll join us for our 2020 WISE Virtual Holiday Social on Thursday, Dec. 17 from 7:30-9:30EST. We’ll have some breakout options to connect in smaller groups, and there will be trivia games played for fun and bragging rights ONLY (sorry, no prizes awarded!).
Come with your favorite food or drink dressed in whatever makes you happiest and let’s have some much needed and well-deserved fun! 🙂
