1. We are creating a membership directory that we will print and provide to each member. You will be able to see contact information for all members as well as business affiliation (for those who agree to share that information). We need you to complete the membership survey we have distributed online and that we will hand out during meetings – we need your information to create the most up-to-date and accurate directory.

  2. Every month we send our members a monthly recap of events and a list of upcoming events, meetings and other important dates. You can sign up for the newsletter via our Facebook page, but once you become a member you are automatically added to the mailing list. This year, we will begin featuring members’ businesses – all you need to know is send the information you would like to share to normaamendozaphd@gmail.com – we will review and send as part if our Business Feature on a first come, first serve basis. In addition, we will share articles and links to helpful information related to your personal and professional development. If there are topics you would like to see in the newsletter, or have suggestions, please contact Norma Mendoza at normaamendozaphd@gmail.com

  3. Our Website is a place where you will be able to access information about WLI, our research projects, community outreach, and connect with members. Stay tuned, as you will also be able to pay your dues online and buy tickets to our events.

  4. As a not-for profit organization, we depend on your dues and donations to cover operation costs. But as a member, we believe you are entitled to a special rate f or our various events. Discounts may vary by event, but we hope to be able to provide you with at least a 10-15% savings.

  5. Meetings and events: Our various events and membership meetings are a great opportunity to get to know other like-minded women, to expand your circle of friends and even grow your professional network. Make sure to attend and meet the many wonderful women that make up Wise Latina International. If you belong to Wise Latina International, you will quickly realize that the intangible benefits you will derive are as valuable (or even more) as the tangible benefits we can offer you. The power of a sisterhood organized to improve our communities, to empower and educate our youth, and to support and encourage expression through arts and entertainment is rewarding beyond words. However, through these membership benefits, we strive to offer you opportunities for personal and professional growth – we hope you take advantage of each and every one of them!
