Regional Group Program
ABOUT THE REGIONAL GROUP PROGRAM
The Regional Group Program was developed to give Women’s Dermatologic Society (WDS) Members the necessary tools to encourage networking, promote mentorship, create new opportunities for volunteerism, and engage with current and prospective members on a local and regional level.
The program has divided the United States into seven Main Regions, each region led by a Vice-Chair who is a member of the Regional Group Committee. The Vice-Chair oversees and supports the events and programs within their region, and seeks out opportunities to recruit additional WDS Members interested in hosting their own events.
REGIONAL GROUP PROGRAM GOALS
The goal of the Regional Group is to help facilitate local gatherings to provide opportunities in each region for networking, and mentorship, as well as for service projects to be carried out more expeditiously. These opportunities can be events held individually or held concurrently with different cities and regions.
The Regional Group will also be a channel for communication about the great things that are happening throughout the WDS by creating press releases and serving as contacts for the local media.
We hope that you consider getting involved by either attending an event or by hosting an event for local WDS Members in your area! CLICK HERE for the Regional Event Planning Toolkit to help get you started!
