Working from Home? Take a break from isolation and immerse yourself in a social distance-friendly double feature. The Atlanta Chapter welcomes all Chapters to our latest Atlanta event. If appropriate for your time zone, get a glass of wine and relax while we enjoy:
- A Resource update on all the behind the scenes tools now available to Wnet members. If you’re not already a member in these uncertain times, these career and personal development-friendly resources will surely make you want to join.
- A Leadership Panel with several of our Atlanta-based Wnet Leaders.
Wnet Executive Director, Lisl Dutterer will provide a walk through of our latest and best resources available to all members on wnetonline.org. Resources designed to help recruiters and member talent, mentors, and other member support. We’re not just defined by our member events and signature webinars. Our resources really are out of this world and you’ll have an opportunity to explore the very latest.
Following that walk through, enjoy an interactive panel of available Wnet Board Members as they share their insights and experiences as stand out female leaders in a traditionally male dominated industry. Your next inspiration could be the answer to something you ask or something they share. If our vision is a world where a woman’s potential is as unlimited as her ambition, it’s healthy to make sure each of us sets the bar for that ambition high enough and we stay mindfully on course to achieving our ambitious goals.
As a result of attending this virtual event, our participants will be able to
- Expand the quality and quantity of their network.
- Learn about actionable tools and resources within the Wnet family.
- Receive Wnet C-Suite inspiration on leadership that they can apply to their very own circumstances.
- Have an opportunity to meet several of our Board virtually (Beam Me Up Scotty!).

Dana Sills, Chair of the Wnet Atlanta Chapter & Senior Vice President, National Benefit Programs
Dana is a serial networker and connector of people. This is how she accidentally fell into the payments industry fresh out of college. The serendipity has continued ever since. Dana is pleased to have helped PMT Services, Inc. grow organically to go public during her tenure. As the 5th hire in the credit division in a company of approximately 55 employees, she helped Lynk (RBS Lynk/RBS WorldPay, WorldPay) over 16 years expand from a private company through two acquisitions. While there, she earned Lynk’s first Employee of the Year Award for greatest fiscal contribution among approximately 500 employees with the national release of sales management software. She released National Benefit Programs while at Cynergy, now Priority. Note this connection resulted in her current employment. She developed training, product management and business development while at MainStream, handing opportunity after opportunity off to talented team members that she networked into the organization. Dana is actively sharing the value of National Benefit Programs with acquirers to help them rapidly enhance the value they deliver their portfolio while increasing their earnings per share. She also chairs the Atlanta Wnet Chapter and welcomes any opportunity to meet and help our growing team of current and future industry leaders.
