Formerly Women in Public Administration Society, Women in Public Service (WPS) is an association of public service professionals created "to inspire past, current and future generations by addressing topics relevant to women in public service, while instilling knowledge through education, networking and professional development that strengthens the leadership in our local government and communities."
WPS hosts bi-monthly events throughout the year for networking and learning together at central locations in Wichita. Tentative dates for 2018 events are:
Luncheons | February 15, June 14, August 23
(a previously stated tentative luncheon on April 19 was changed for the May 3 conference)
Conference | May 3
Evening Event | November 1
These dates are subject to change. Please refer to email communications for changes. If you have not signed up for WPS emails, you can do so here.
Two options are available for annual WPS membership:
Luncheons will still be open to nonmembers at a rate of $20 per lunch ($10 for students) and $30 per evening event. A reduced cost of $15 will be available for first-time attendees. Payment will be available prior to each event.
No refunds will be issued for cancellation of membership. However, memberships can be transferred to other colleagues.
