Signature Events

Annual Tin Cup Awards Dinner

This annual dinner is our version of the ESPYS, as we pay tribute to individuals with a proven commitment to the enrichment of African-American government relations professionals. The ladies and gentlemen who are honored embody leadership in their fields for their proven commitment to diversity. The Tin Cup Awards Dinner benefits minority students preparing to pursue full-time undergraduate studies or currently enrolled as a full-time student in good academic standing at an accredited college or university and majoring in such fields as political science or public administration.

General Membership Meetings

Held bimonthly, the General Membership Meeting provides an opportunity to engage fellow peers about current political events, and receive updates on WGRG activities. Congressional policymakers and Administrative staff are often invited for a meaningful exchange with attendees.

Holiday Reception

Our annual December reception gives members and prospective members an opportunity to meet and greet while toasting the accomplishments of another successful year for WGRG.

The John Chambers Memorial Golf Tournament

This annual golf tournament is named in honor of the late John Chambers, an original member of WGRG and one of its first Presidents. The tournament benefits the WGRG Foundation which offers fellowships to deserving college students looking to pursue a career in Government Relations.

Policy Roundtable Series with Members of Congress and the Administration

WGRG hosts monthly breakfast events with Members of Congress and the Administration. These events, limited to up to 20 attendees, offer participants one-on-one interaction with the policymakers on important issues.

Table Talk Series

As an opportunity to broaden WGRG’s professional development opportunities, WGRG organizes lunches with seasoned lobbyists or government relations professionals. The lunches provide an opportunity for a small group of WGRG members to get advice on advancing in the government relations field and to have an informal conversation about their successes, challenges and responsibilities.
