To all WIPLA friends and supporters,

Thank you so much for your support of WIPLA. We truly appreciate it. Hopefully, you and your family are staying safe and healthy during this time of COVID-19. To keep all of us healthy, we put WIPLA events on hold until we feel it is safe to meet again in person. 

******  UPDATED INFORMATION - May 2021 ******

We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation. With any luck, we may be able to start at least some version of events in the fall of 2021, but the date may be pushed out to sometime in 2022. We will contact you in advance of starting events again.


For our members who were active or became new members on or after March 1, 2020 at the beginning of the pandemic, as a courtesy we extended your membership for free through October 31, 2021. Please continue to keep WIPLA in mind during our time on hold. If you would instead prefer a refund of your membership, please email with the subject line WIPLA MEMBERSHIP REFUND, request a refund, and include a mailing address. We will send a refund check to that address.

For our sponsors, we will be contacting you to see how you would like to move forward. 

If you have just found WIPLA, thank you for your interest. We are sorry we do not have any events for you at this time. Also, we are not taking new members at this time. If you would like to be contacted by us in the future, please email with subject line WIPLA EVENTS or WIPLA MEMBERSHIP. We will email you when we are starting events and taking new members again.

Again, thank you for your support of WIPLA.
