Happy July OCWLA Members!

I hope everyone had a nice 4th of July Holiday. It is nice that it finally feels like Summer. Thank you to everyone who came out for our Annual Membership Mixer on June 8th. It was a great evening and a great way to kick off the start of Summer. Thank you again to our many Annual Sponsors who helped make this event happen. 

I am excited to share about our upcoming Speed Networking eventon Friday, July 14th. This event will be a great opportunity to perfect your elevator pitch with tips from Leadership & Development Consultant, Tracy Stayton. We will then practice these skills by speed networking. This is a great way to meet other women lawyers and expand your referral network. I hope to see you at this great event! Register here.
