WRPA Network Circles

WRPA has several dedicated Network circles who meet on a regular basis and communicate online. These networks provide WRPA members with the opportunity to make personal, ongoing connections with other professionals. Joining a network and using the online platform you too can increase your passion for the work you do every day.
