WISE Announcements & Coming Events

162 attended the 4th Annual WISE Open Web Meeting

WISE had its best turnout yet at the annual open meeting, with 162 attending the meeting via computer on January 30, 2015. Additional participants joined via phone, and the meeting replay is posted on this page in the left sidebar for those who missed the event.

About 9% were not members and connected in to hear what WISE has to offer. Over half joined to hear about upcoming WISE activities and events. A polling question during the meeting revealed that 38% of those participating attend local ASSE Chapter events less than once a year, so virtual events may be the avenue to reach more members.

Over 70 people expressed interest in the June 2015 WISE-Up Retreat. Watch the WISE web page and LinkedIn page for more details in the future. Many expressed interest in getting involved with WISE efforts, so Advisory Board members will be reaching out to those individuals.

ChapterWISE Dec. 2014

ChapterWISE is a team of representatives that coordinate local WISE events. Our team has monthly, 30-minute phone calls to share ideas about what we want ChapterWISE to be overall and to share information about activities we've done and those that are coming up. We send out monthly updates with Talking Points so each representative can share what WISE is doing at their chapter meetings. Activities for each chapter vary depending on the representative and WISE members of the chapter. If you're interested or want more information, contact,, or
