With 2021 being our first VIRTUAL Annual Meeting, there will likely be more questions than usual. Please review the list below, but also feel free to email us directly with any other questions you have.
Q: Where will the 2021 WPCC Annual Meeting be held?
A: Virtually, online. We have created a custom online event space that will allow us to provide a level of engagement and “socializing” we hope will bring back the feeling of previous Annual Meetings. And remember, we’ll also have time to connect more personally in the roof top networking lounge before and after the daily events – so have a beverage ready!
Q: How will I get there?
A: We will be sending out an email in August with details on how to login to the virtual platform.
Q: What will I need to attend the event?
A: Please have access to good quality internet and a web camera with microphone. Remember to have your computer plugged in – or charge your computer. We also recommend good quality front lighting so we can be sure to see your smiling faces. Always good to have plenty of water nearby — which you can sip from the WPCC branded water bottle that comes in the Welcome Package.
Q: What is the attire for the meeting?
A: Please dress comfortably in business casual (at least from the waist up!). As always, we encourage you to wear your purple. You’ll be receiving a WPCC FORWARD TOGETHER 2021 shirt and we’d love to see you wearing that during the meetings.
Q: You’ve mentioned Welcome Package twice – tell me about the Annual Meeting Welcome Package?
A: Because we are trying to make this virtual meeting feel as much like our previous meetings as possible, we have created an official Welcome Package that will be mailed to everyone who registers for the Annual Meeting. The theme for our Annual Meeting is FORWARD TOGETHER 2021.
The Welcome Package will include
- Backpack tote bag
- Water Bottle
- Sticker Set
- Folder with agenda, speaker bios and sponsor one sheets
Q: How many attendees are allowed to register from each Coalition member organization?
A: Due to limited space on the virtual platform, we can only accommodate two attendees per WPCC organization. However, the meeting will be recorded to share afterwards with others on your team. If you would like to register more than 2 attendees from your organization, there will be a link to add people to the waitlist after you’ve registered.
Q: What is the cancellation policy?
A: We understand that something may come up which may prevent you from attending the Annual Meeting after you’ve registered. If that happens, please try to find an alternate attendees from your organization. Otherwise, we ask you to let us know as soon as possible so that we can open up your space to others.
Q: What will be on the menu in the Sponsor Networking Lounge?
A: That’s up to you, but we recommend having healthy snacks and caffeine handy during the working sessions. You’ll also want to make sure to have all the ingredients on hand to mix up a Purple Passion – the official cocktail of the FORWARD TOGETHER Networking Lounge!
- 1 1/2 ounces vodka

How to Make it
