I am very honored to have been nominated by the Women’s Jewelry Association for their 2013 Awards for Excellence in the Special Services Category. To be included in such an array of talented women in the jewelry industry is humbling. I have long been proud to be a member of the WJA and am extraordinarily proud of the work the organization does.
Back in March, I participated in a mentoring program at the WJA In the Know event. It was very exciting to share some of the knowledge I have gained working in the industry with other women. The mentoring opportunities in the WJA are so important in strengthening the role women play in the jewelry industry.
I will be part of another panel at JCK this week. Tips on How to Network Successfully will be held from 4 – 5:15 p.m. on Friday, May 31 at Mandalay Bay, Tradewinds B. I will be joining moderator Debbie Hiss, Owner of Debbie Hiss Consulting, and panelists Diane Warga-Arias, Educationalist & Brand Development Consultant, DWA Communications, Inc.; Lita Asscher, President, Royal Asscher of America; and Beth Schmitz, Beth Schmitz Consulting. We will discuss what networking really means and how to cultivate relationships.
And of course I look forward to attending the Awards for Excellence Gala Dinner on July 29. Not because I get to visit New York City again or because I am a nominee, but to support the WJA in its exceptional work.
