Why become a member of the Women’s National Book Association? You can find out more about who we are and what we do on some of our past blog posts. But let’s talk about some of the benefits of membership (besides getting to meet extraordinary women and men involved in all areas of the book world!).
Networking: By joining the WNBA, you become part of a dynamic local and national network of publishing professionals, which provides you with valuable contacts and connections that can be beneficial at any stage of your career.
Free, Reduced, and/or Priority Admission to Panels and Social Events: Members can attend any of our panels, workshops, and networking events, and can listen to or download streaming audio of past panels on the Members Only page of the chapter website. Members are also invited to bring guests without charge to the annual networking party in September. Members enjoy priority registration and discounts for those events open to the public. For a list of upcoming events, see the events list.
Subscription to The Bookwoman: The WNBA National print newsletter is published three times a year and updates you on Member News and Chapter Events in all our chapters across the country, as well as WNBA National initiatives like National Reading Group Month, Great Group Reads, and the organization’s United Nations affiliation.
Subscription to the NYC-Chapter newsletter, The New York Bookwoman: As a WNBA-NYC member you are welcome to contribute to this monthly online newsletter as well as share your successes and book reviews. The NY Bookwoman also recaps programs you may have missed, interviews members, and gives you up to date information about priority registration for our panel events.
Chapter Membership Directory: This networking tool—available only to members—lists names, addresses, and professional affiliations of all active members.
Membership in National WNBA: Connect with WNBA members across the country. Attend WNBA-related programs and events at the national meetings of the BEA, ALA, and MLA.
