WRPA Network Circles

Do you want to connect with members in your area?
Do you want to keep in touch with someone you met at a WRPA conference?

Do you have a question for members working in similar sectors? 
Are you interested in current issues being discussed?  

Then our members-only WRPA Social Circles are for you!  

Inviting people to be part of your network allows you to make personal, ongoing connections with individual members. The Circles social networking function of our website allows you to join and create groups by region, sector, or area of expertise, stay in touch local activities or participate in a discussion with members who have similar backgrounds. Online discussion boards give you the opportunity to easily participate and track issues being discussed at your convenience.

This is a great opportunity to stay apprised of current challenges, successes, and conversations - all in one members-only social network!
