2012 WW Awards Dinner

The WebWhispers Dinner for members and guests is held each year during the IAL Annual Meeting. The WW Dinner, this year, will be held Thursday evening, June 7th,

Sheraton Imperial
4700 Emperor Blvd
Durham, NC 27703

It begins at 7:15 PM immediately following the reception. It's a big event for us and we look forward to seeing many of you there.

This is where we have the opportunity to meet face-to-face, to talk and just have fun together. We take a moment to share grief over our losses, to present our scholarship checks and to rejoice over those who receive our awards. It is our moment to be together.
