Last month I told you we were going to be shaking it up a bit and our October meeting is a fine example.  Kulpinski 8021

ConnectW is proud to help sponsor photojournalist Alison Wright’s presentation, “Women Swimming Upstream: The Global Empowerment of Women at Work in the Developing World. “

Wright, the 2013 National Geographic Traveler of the Year (I’m jealous) will be sharing photos and stories of women who have risen above circumstance to empower themselves through their strength and tenacity. This promises to be another enlightening event from COCC’s Nancy R. Chandler Visiting Scholar Program and replaces our regular third Wednesday meeting.

Here’s the deal – NO dinner meeting. Instead, mark your calendars for the following day – THURSDAY, Oct 22, Tower Theatre. I know, a kink in the regular schedule – ARRG. And you have to manually register for this one (even if you’re on auto pay) – double ARRG! I suggest you do so asap as it’s open to the public and could sell out – triple ARRG! The good news, it’s only $15 instead of $25 – AHH!

But wait! Bring that extra $10 or $15 and join us for networking, appies & beverages at Joolz (next to 900 Wall) from 5-6pm. We’ll have a kitty to collect for the preordered apps. Then together we’ll walk across the street en masse to enjoy what promises to be an uplifting program.

I hope you’re as proud as we are to support community events such as this – even when it throws a wrench into the fine tuned order of our lives.

Warmly chuckling about fine tuned order,


PS – We’ll have a regular dinner meeting in November – promise!
