Women in Advertising and Communications, London (WACL) has been in existence since 1923. It currently consists of 160 of the most senior women from the fields of advertising and communications, marketing, media and associated trade bodies.
Current members include: Roisin Donnelly, Corporate Marketing Director P&G, Nicola Mendelsohn, VP EMEA Facebook and Cilla Snowball, Chair of AMV/BBDO Europe among others.
To be considered for membership, candidates should have at least three years’ experience on the board of their company and be part of the senior management team.
Membership is by invitation only, and results from a nomination by existing members, which is then reviewed by a Membership Committee and the WACL Executive Committee. Unfortunately, we cannot accept personal applications but any member of the Executive or Membership Committees would be happy to meet you to chat about joining the club.
Membership requirements are to attend a minimum of three events a year, but we seek members who would like to do more than that – to join a committee, attend other events – to really get involved in the club to get the most out of it.
Most events are for members and their guests only but we also run events each year for younger, up and coming members of the marketing communications industries. These are publicised here on our website and usually also in relevant trade magazines.
