9,698 Marks All-time High
CHANTILLY, Va., Nov. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Women in Cable Telecommunications (WICT) today announced that its membership surpassed previous records for the third year in a row. WICT membership reached 9,698 in 2012, a nearly 27 percent increase since 2009, and 7 percent over the 2011 record of 9,061. This announcement follows on the heels of the highly successful WICT Leadership Conference and Touchstones Luncheon, both of which were marked by growth in attendance over 2011.
"We are proud to have achieved record-setting membership for the third year in a row," said Maria E. Brennan, CAE, WICT President & CEO. "This increase is due in large part to our highly-regarded career development programs and resources, in addition to the hard work and dedication of our national and local leaders, and our industry partners across the country."
Reaching a new level of membership can likely be attributed to the valuable resources and educational opportunities WICT provides to its members and partner companies. As the largest and strongest organization representing women in cable media, WICT gives women a competitive edge through its leadership development initiatives, including the highly-regarded Betsy Magness Leadership Institute, Tech It Out, the Rising Leaders Program and more.
