Thank you all for an amazing 2017 that left us inspired and motivated to ask for more!  Please join us at the WID Steering Committee Meeting and Appreciation Event on Tuesday, January 23 at 6 pm at the BSA.  All are invited.

We will review the many initiatives that we began last year and hear from our sub-committees on their 2017 successes and 2018 goals. We will also be looking for your input and ideas for 2018, as we strive to continue celebrating and empowering women within our design community.

Light food and drinks will be provided, so please RSVP so we have an accurate headcount. We hope to see you there!
