Carolinas Networking Event in Raleigh

The Carolinas Chapter is growing with another successful Networking Event held on Thursday, 11/8.  This time it was held in Raleigh, NC with over 30 attendees.

There were retirement professionals from many different segments of the retirement industry that gathered to meet and network and make connections that count. 

Marcela Curry kicked off the event carrying the WIPN message with information about WIPN’s history, mission, membership, events and Local Chapters.

Wilson Hoyle, Managing Director, Head of the Advisor Group, from CAPTRUST welcomed everyone and encouraged women to be active in WIPN, to participate in committees and help lift each other up.  CAPTRUST recognizes the importance of more women in the industry taking senior leader roles and more women on boards.

Many thanks to CAPTRUST for their generous sponsorship of this event!  They made it possible to hold the event at the AC Hotel Level 7 Rooftop Lounge with plenty of food, drink and goody bags filled with all kinds of treats.  In addition to sponsoring the event, CAPTRUST was instrumental in helping to plan and promote this event and the value of the WiPN organization. 

Also a special THANK YOU to Marcela Curry for planning this event and bringing awareness of WIPN to the Raleigh area.
