“WAVE was elated with the success of last year’s event,” says Jennifer Willard, founder of WAVE. “There was such a tremendous turnout, and the networking we witnessed led to such critical business ventures for women in our industry. The community continues to grow and participate in more events such as NSCA’s Business & Leadership Conference, where this year, more women participated than ever before.”

“It’s an honor to sponsor this reception,” says Jan Sandri, FSR, president. “We feel it is important to provide opportunities for mentoring within our industry and are so pleased to join NSCA and WAVE in this initiative.”
