Women in Preservation (WIP) is a formal gathering of women organized by an ad hoc group gathered occasionally for the sole purpose of producing the Women in Preservation Luncheon. WIP first met in 1984 and has since lunched in 1985, 1986, 1987, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1998, and 2001. Tradition was broken in 2002 by having a WIP Breakfast with guest speaker Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.
After a too-long hiatus, a WIP Breakfast was held in 2010 featuring Stephanie Meeks, the first woman president of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and Stephanie Toothman, Ph.D., associate director for cultural resources, National Park Service.
