For those that are in the D.C. area and want to network with like minded people, you should check out the Women Grow D.C. chapter meeting in June. One of my heroes, Betty Aldworth, will be speaking, which will no doubt be a fantastic learning experience. Below are more details via the Eventbrite page:
On behalf of myself, Laila Makled, and my Vice Chair, Ashby Henderson, we are thrilled to announce the huge success of our Chapter Launch in May and are excited to see you all again and new faces at our June Signature Networking Event.
Betty Aldworth Executive Director, Students for Sensible Drug Policy
Betty Aldworth joined the SSDP team in February 2014 as Executive Director. Since 2009, Betty has specialized in community outreach, public relations, advocacy, and policy reform as a consultant to cannabis-related businesses and nonprofit organizations. Prior to her work in marijuana policy and medical cannabis, she was a volunteer leadership professional with some of Denver’s most well-respected nonprofit organizations.
Betty served as spokesperson and advocacy director for Colorado’s successful 2012 Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, the collaborative committee responsible for legalizing, taxing and regulating marijuana for adults in Colorado, and was the Deputy Director of the National Cannabis Industry Association in 2013, the organization’s largest year of growth.
This is a professional networking event. We want everyone to be comfortable, but business casual is encouraged.
We will be providing light refreshments and food. We will be at a restaurant/bar so food and drinks will be availble.
This event is generously sponsored by our friends at MMJ Advocates Group: http://mmjadvocatesgroup.com/
