The Women’s Industry Network (WIN) announced it has started a “Pay-It-Forward” campaign to allow current WIN members and non-members to purchase and gift a full 365-day WIN membership for a new member.

This year’s campaign is all about sharing the value of WIN with others in the industry. By participating, donors can designate the yearly gift to go to a recipient of their choice or donate to the “WIN Pick” membership fund and the organization will select a recipient in need.

Thanks to the generosity of its sponsors, members and other industry professionals, for a limited time, WIN is now able to provide several dozen 365-day memberships at no cost and is currently accepting applications.

“We are grateful to those whose generosity goes beyond, to better enrich the collision repair industry and our organization as a whole,” said Jenny Anderson, current chair of WIN. “We’re proud to be able to extend this offer to a limited number of potential new members and strengthen our network with these connections.”

Added WIN Membership Committee member Jennifer Hubbard, “This program is a great way for prospective members to gain entry into a world of resources for women in the collision repair industry. Thanks again to our charitable Pay-It-Forward donors who help make all of this a reality.”

The following criteria will be considered by WIN’s membership committee when awarding a WIN Pick Pay-It-Forward membership:

New to the Industry: Corporate. For those in the corporate world who are new (less than one year) to the auto body and collision industry and have not previously been a WIN member.

New to the Industry: Local Shop. For those new (less than two years) to a local shop whose primary focus is on auto body collision and have not previously been a WIN member.

Between Jobs in the Collision Industry. For anyone who is not currently employed and is actively seeking a corporate or shop position within the auto body and collision industry. Expired WIN members meeting these criteria are welcome to apply.

Working in the Industry/Votech Instructor. New to WIN. For those who are new to WIN and membership fees aren’t covered by the employer.
