If you're looking to start the new year with a "new you," New York Women in Communications can help. We've put together a list of easily attainable resolutions that can benefit you personally and professionally.
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. For instance, we'll be discussing how to market yourself at every age and ensuring you have the skill to brand yourself and stay relevant at our next Coffee & Conversations event on Feb. 2, 2016. Robyn Hatcher will moderate a panel including Celia Currin and Jamie McLaughlin. Register now!
Get Involved: 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. For a list of committees and information on how to join, click here.

Assess the Year Ahead: Did you know that NYWICI membership includes a free coaching session with one of our esteemed career coaches? They are experts in everything from personal finance to public speaking and dressing for success. Check out the list of coaches and set up a FREE session today.
Get Fit: We know this is a popular resolution, and we've got the right tools to make it happen: NYWICI membership gives you discounts to YogaWorks! Check out the complete list of benefits available to members.
Apply for a Scholarship: If financial support and the incredible network our scholarship winners have access to sounds appealing, then apply for a NYWICI Foundation Scholarship. Applications are due Jan. 29, 2016.
Pay it Forward: Author Catherine Ryan Hyde once said, "There is no wrong way to perform an act of kindness." 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 Foundation. 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. 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!
Be Inspired: One of the most inspiring days of the year for us is our annual Matrix Awards. Attendees always walk away ready to realize their own potential. If you pledge a sponsorship or ad package by Jan. 4, 2016, you'll receive 10% off! Register today for the 2016 Matrix Awards, hosted by Interpublic Group. Click here for more information.
We wish you all the best in the year ahead.
Happy New Year!
