Supper Salon in San Francisco
Our first San Francisco Supper Salon was held at Quan Bac, a French Vietnamese Restaurant. The food was delicious and the conversation stimulating. Along with the professional and personal sharing of info when OWA members gather, we chewed over the topic, “OWA: Who are we and why are we?” Everyone thought we should meet and dine again every other month. So, our next Supper Salon will be May 24, Monday at Quan Bac at 6:30/7:00 PM. A reminder with details will be sent out later in the month.
Supper Salon in Berkeley
Informal East Bay dinner the second Wednesday of the month at “Gather” on Oxford Street in Berkeley. All are welcome to join us between 7pm and 8:30pm.

OWA Policy and Procedures Working Groupby Joanne Chow Winship | Share #203
Have you ever entertained the thought of becoming more involved with OWA? Or wondered how it operates? Well, here’s your opportunity to go backstage and see how it works. Maybe even become part of the cast.
This is the year of “The OWA Policies and Procedures Manual”. A draft has been posted here (for member viewing only) by Leslie Golden with comments from Leslie Allen and Wendy Bertrand. Joanne Chow Winship will be coordinating the review and revisions with hopefully, lots of comments and suggestions from the membership. It would be great if members came forth and a working group was formed to meet and discuss the outline and operational details for a participatory OWA organization dedicated to initiating and carrying out “activities to improve the professional standing of women in architecture and related fields”. It is anticipated that two meetings would be able to get a majority of the work done.
The OWA Steering Committee has dedicated a number of their meetings to addressing the formal establishment of the Policies and Procedures, and having a formal draft ready for comments this summer with final approval by the membership at the Annual Meeting in October. So, think about joining the Policies and Procedures working group and give Joanne a call at 415-753-7550 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
