WAAI Chapter Announces Women’s Day Luncheon

The Chicago Chapter of the Women’s Automotive Association International (WAAI) will award its first Professional Achievement Award to a local professional woman during Women’s Day of the 2008 Chicago Auto Show. The award is bestowed in recognition of the winner’s commitment, professionalism and success in the automotive industry.
The group will host a luncheon entitled “Celebrating Women in the Automotive Industry,” 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12, in Room N427 of McCormick Place. Members and prospective members will have the opportunity to network with local women professionals, then witness the award presentation and a panel discussion of expert women leaders from the automotive industry.
WAAI Chicago Chapter is dedicated to the development and recognition of women leaders in the automotive industry. The national organization was established in 1995 when Lorraine Schultz, the group’s founder, established an organization dedicated to the development and advancement of women as automotive industry leaders. Today, the WAAI continues to thrive throughout the United States and Canada as the leading women’s global organization dedicated to this purpose. The group has multiple goals:

• recognize the achievements of women in the industry;
• provide educational e-news to automotive career-focused individuals;
• build relationships through networking and other interactive forums; and
• encourage growth through mentoring, educational endeavors, and scholarships.

Those wishing more information about the event or joining the WAAI can contact Kathy Gilbert, Director of Sales & Business Development, ADP Dealer Services at 847-485-4390 or via Email, Kathy_Gilbert@adp.com
