If you're looking to start the new year off with a "new you," NYWICI can help. We've put together a list of easily attainable ideas 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, like the informal, fun NYWICI Night Out at Lord & Taylor on January 19, 2017: meet and greet and mingle and enjoy a presentation hosted by Lord & Taylor master stylists, Micah & Travis, to learn how to polish your professional presence for the New Year! Students can register for a Behind-the-Scenes Tour at Vice Media in Brooklyn on January 12, 2017, and the Young Professionals’ Book Club invites you to discuss Amy Schumer’s new book, The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, on January 18, 2017.
Volunteer to serve on one of NYWICI's 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 help plan NYWICI’s next events. 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 Foundation Scholarship. Applications are due January 27, 2017.
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 Member Empowerment Grant. Strapped for cash after the holidays? Volunteer your time instead. How about reading scholarship applications in February?
We know this is a popular resolution, and we've got the right tools to make it happen! Check out the list of benefits and discounts available for members.
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 walk away feeling inspired and ready to realize their own potential. We hope you'll register for the 2017 Matrix Awards on April 24, 2017, hosted by Hearst.
We wish you all the best in the year ahead. And remember to connect, create and communicate with the women who connect the world.
