VPW is a diverse organization of professional communicators in Virginia that is open to women and men. We work for newspapers, magazines, radio, television stations, schools, colleges, government, corporations, non-profit agencies, communications businesses, and a variety of organizations and associations.

Both organizations promote the highest ethical standards, foster exchanges of journalistic ideas and experiences, offer continuing education opportunities to members and serve the public's right-to-know.
