Las Vegas Wedding Concierge Joins WIPA-First Non-Profit Wedding Association!

Your Las Vegas Wedding Concierge is very excited to announce I am now a Founding Member of "WIPA",

"Wedding Industry Professionals Association (WIPA) is the first national non-profit association established specifically for the wedding industry. Its purpose is to promote the wedding industry, to educate the public in the value of employing qualified wedding specialists, to set and monitor high standards of performance for our Members, and to provide Members with opportunities to advance their professional growth.  WIPA is a professional organization that is run by its Members, who understand what it takes to effectively produce a wedding, and membership is open to all types of wedding-related businesses (planners, service providers, vendors and venues).

WIPA’s mission is provide the industry a forum where we can rely on our members to teach, challenge, and encourage each other to continue our path of innovation, while still keeping our code of ethics in the forefront of our business practices, thereby bringing the best possible product to our client and each other." From WIPA Website & Membership Brochure.

Membership will be considered in WIPA for those with 3 or more years of Industry Experience which is a little different than most other Wedding Associations and the opportunities for an industry wide standardized exam and professional certification are also the goals of WIPA.  

I am very excited to have been invited to join WIPA as a Founding Member and look forward to the exciting and important things this association and our members will contribute to the betterment of our Industry for ourselves, our clients and those that are new to the industry as well. 

Visit www.WIPAUSA.org to view the wedding industry leaders who have created WIPA and an email for getting more information if you are interested in membership while the site is being created. I am looking forward to my industry colleagues, who for many years have discussed amongst us the possibility of an organization like this getting off the ground, joining me in this association. 

Have a Stylish Day!
