Happy August OCWLA Members!

We had an amazing July! We held our first ever Speed Networking Event that sold out! Leadership & Development Consultant Tracy Stayton provided excellent tips on giving an effective elevator pitch and provided tips for professional networking and business development. It was such a success that we plan to hold the event annually.

Also, our Women Judges Reception is less than a month away. It will be held on Thursday, September 7th at the Boardwalk Courtyard. This is a great event to meet and talk with the Women Judges in Orange County and will likely sell out, so be sure to register soon. Register here >

This year’s Annual Gala is also right around the corner, and will be held at VEA Newport Beach on Tuesday, October 17th. Sponsorship opportunities are still available!
