Remembering Bill

We were deeply saddened by the untimely death of a great friend and supporter of Women in CE. Bill Anderson, vice president of Audio Video Design in Mission Viejo, California, and longtime CEDIA volunteer and industry friend to so many, unexpectedly passed away. A loving tribute was held this past Sunday with a beautiful service and family and friends coming together to celebrate his remarkable and caring life. Our thoughts go out to Bill’s family, friends, and especially to his beloved daughter Danielle. Bill will be deeply missed. Obituary

Memorial Donations
Friends and family have organized a trust to help Danielle fulfill Bill's hopes and dreams for her education and development. Donations may be made to the Trust in form of a check payable to The Danielle Anderson Scholarship & Life Trust and be mailed to:

We're very excited with the success of this brand new program and want everyone to get involved as it continues to grow.

What is Women in CE Connect?
The program is focused on creating a community to encourage and support women to become successful in their career growth. If we talk openly about our professional growth and obstacles we face, such as gender issues, we can work together to tackle them and change the trajectory of women to create a better world for all of us.

How it works:
Each group has 8-10 individuals and is organized by time zone. Groups get together on a monthly conference call lasting approximately 1.5 hours. Every participant is asked to suggest topics for the group. Groups have a facilitator and a moderator to guide the discussions, encourage participation, and help direct the group's progress.

The Pedicure Approach and Round 2 of Mentorship
By Nicole Mangina

A conversation came up during our last mentorship meeting about marketing your time to build your network. Networking is a tricky subject. Everyone knows that they need to do it, but the very word is enough to make some people break out in a cold sweat. Visions of stick-on nametags, awkward conversations, and random card passing are enough to make anyone want to take a pass. For most people, I believe that this is the wrong way to network.

In fact, here is your get-out-of-jail-free card: if you don't want to be there, it isn't going to work. So don’t bother.
