Happy Holidays from CAPE Board and Staff

Dear CAPE Members and Friends  

2013 was an important year for CAPE. We ended the year strong with three important events for our members:

  • CAPE Executive Panel sponsored by The Walt Disney Company and Albert Cheng – connected our members with high level executives
  • Philippines Typhoon Relief – raised over $30,000
  • CAPE New Writers Fellowship – we graduated our first class of writers

Be on the look out for 2014 events in our newsletter and don’t forget to submit the CNWF 2014.

Happy holidays!
