ALL Members--- You are Invited!

All chapter members...please mark your calendars for Saturday, January 30th. Your executive board invites you to join them to share your thoughts about membership, and to get to know the board members! What do you hope to get out of WNBA/LA membership? How can we help and support you and your goals? Here are the details:

• Saturday, January 30th
• 11:00 to 11:30 meet with the board
• 11:30 to 1:00 refreshments and socializing

The meeting is at Ruth Light's home:
3327 Moore St., Los Angeles, CA 90066 - 310-397-4503

Email [email protected] to let us know if you will attend.
Lots of street parking is available, but be careful of the bumps in the street close to Ruth's house!

The entire executive board looks forward to seeing you there!

WNBA/LA executive board members don't always work...sometimes they just goof off! Here are Rachelle Yousuf (president), Ruth Light (newsletter editor), and Liz Donatelli (vice president) using their coloring talent at the Flintridge Bookstore and Coffeeshop holiday event.

On December 13, our chapter's 40th anniversary was combined with the Annual Holiday Party. We met at the Canyon Grille in Burbank for an evening of delicious food and interesting conversation. Danielle Olson (Social Media Chair) and Liz Donatelli (Vice President) organized and planned the party, and the turnout was a wonderful mix of new members, potential members, and longstanding members.
