Hello EcoWomen!

It’s that time of year again, when the city empties out and everyone seems to be on vacation! I wanted to quickly update you all on some new and exciting changes for DC EcoWomen in the upcoming year.

Earlier in August, our new and returning members of the DC EcoWomen Executive Board took a break from city living for a weekend and headed to Hard Bargain Farm in Maryland to plan out our vision for the upcoming year. Keeping pace with the exciting growth of DC EcoWomen, the Board added two new committees and adopted a new more flexible structure to promote leadership opportunities and foster greater team building. Meet our new Board members here on our new and improved Website.

Over the course of the next year, we will be reinventing EcoHour to keep them relevant to our members and making small but important changes to our Eco-mmunity groups which we hope will keep our events fresh and inviting. We are also excited to lay the groundwork for a new mentoring program, beginning with intimate opportunities for members to meet and interact with women leaders in the environmental field. More details coming soon!

We have lots of great events and speakers in the works, starting with September’s EcoHour speaker Carolyn Markey, the Manager of Public Policy and Washington Communications for General Motors.

Mark your calendars for EcoHour on Tuesday, September 20 and our upcoming Lunch on the Lawn event on Sunday, October 16 at Rock Creek Park. Keep an eye out for details on both events in your inbox next week!

Here’s to another amazing year!
