WAC’s Social Media Initiatives Progress at June Meeting

Written by

Women in Automotive and Collision (WAC), a group that continues to grow and gain focus, held a meeting at The Post on June 19.

WAC Vice President Jess Crump noted, “We had a good turnout at The Post this month with only a few last-minute cancellations and one guest. WAC is a membership organization of passionate women in the automotive industry collaborating and leading members to create industry career awareness. Membership is $100 to help us attend events and further the mission, but membership is open to anyone in the automotive industry and all students are free! We are still looking for dinner sponsors, corporate sponsors and locations for future meetings. Thank you to Enterprise [Rent-A-Car] for being June’s dinner sponsor!”

Enterprise’s Tricia Belz, who serves as WAC’s social media coordinator, delivered a spotlight on current news with the rental company before providing an update on the association’s social media initiatives. The group’s Instagram page has gone live at WACSTLGROUP. Crump advised members that the association’s website will be completed in a few weeks at www.WACSTL.com.

Sheena Wagner and Jess Crump surprised the members with WAC t-shirts to wear to events. The group brainstormed events for WAC to participate in, how to draw people to our booth and about holding a fundraiser in the fall,” WAC President Shelly Jones shared. “After the meeting, Jess created and shared an email template to send to people that are interested in what we do. We have formed a committee to get the ball rolling on a car show this fall and other potential events. Stay tuned for more information!”

WAC’s next meeting will be held on July 17, with the location yet to be determined. For more information about the association, visit facebook.com/groups/wacstl.
