Annual WiNN Forums
On Monday, January 7, 2019, the WiNN Committee held an informal meet and mingle to honor the newest Newport Beach City Council Member, Joy Brenner. The event was held at The Bungalow in Corona del Mar to a slightly over capacity crowd.
The third annual WiNN Forum was held on Monday, April 23, 2018 in the Community Room of the Newport Beach Civic Center. The special guest speaker was Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens.
The second annual WiNN Forum was held on Thursday, March 16, 2017 in the Community Room of the Newport Beach Civic Center. The special guest speaker was Michelle Steel, Chair of the Orange County Board of Supervisors.
Approximately 200 community members attended the inaugural WiNN forum on February 25, 2016. View photos from the forum.
The City and local, nonprofit organizations provided information at the forum about their volunteer groups and needs. There was a brief panel discussion featuring current and former community leaders Marian Bergeson, Roberta "Bobbie" Fesler, Judy Johnson and Dorothy Larson, and participants were able to talk with panelists and other community volunteers.
In 2015, Newport Beach City Council Member Diane Dixon and several community leaders developed a forum called Women in Newport Networking (WiNN) to encourage Newport Beach women to engage in, and serve as leaders of, community and civic organizations. The committee has since broadened the focus of WiNN to creating awareness among Newport Beach men and women of opportunities to serve local community, charitable and civic organizations.
The WiNN planning committee is comprised of:
- Diane Dixon, Newport Beach City Council Member
- Debra Allen, Former Civil Service Board Member
- Robyn Grant, Civil Service Board Member
- Kathy Harrison, Former Arts Commissioner
- Sarah Stapleton, Community Leader
- Jill Johnson-Tucker, Chair, Board of Library Trustees
