Annual Fall Brunch

WHEN: Sunday, Sept. 18, 12:30 - 3:00 p.m.
WHERE: Member's home in Chevy Chase, MD
COST: $10 at the door (cash or check only) OR bring a dish to share
RSVP: To [email protected] to receive the address

The annual WNBA-DC Fall Networking Brunch is a time to reconnect with old friends, make new friends, enjoy delicious home-cooked food, and relax. After everyone has had a chance to eat, we'll gather for a round robin, when each attendee has a chance to share her recent success, job hunt, project, publication, etc. If you're not a member of the chapter yet, you're still welcome to join us at the brunch (and we hope you become a member at the brunch so you can stay informed of upcoming events).

It's $10 at the door OR bring a dish to share with everyone. The chapter provides the cutlery, dishes, and beverages. If you bring a dish, please also bring an index card listing the ingredients so those with dietary concerns will know what they can eat.

WHEN: Tuesday, Oct. 4, 6:30 pm
WHERE: Kramerbooks, Dupont Circle
