Invitation to OWA Visioning Retreat in Lafayette on May 7th


This is your personal invitation to attend a mini-retreat, among your friends at the OWA. We appreciate what you have contributed to the organization over the years, and would like your feedback on the future of the organization. Come and enjoy this gregarious event in the beautiful surroundings of a California native garden in Lafayette. This is a change of venue from our previous announcement in Berkeley, because there was a mix-up at the venue. Our steering committee member, landscape architect Leslie Golden, has offered her home and gardens for our retreat.

OWA's Visioning Retreat promises engaging conversations and gourmet delights. This is the opportunity that you have been waiting for, to define the future of OWA and ensure the original mission and goals remain intact. What a better time to revisit this discussion, as we prepare for OWA's 40th anniversary? OWA has served us for many years, as a support network for women in design professions. What challenges do we face today and how should we meet them?

Please RSVP by April 20 to Joanne Winship and she will provide additional information to you. Lunch and the venue will be provided at no cost to members who RSVP on time. You are also encouraged to send in your thoughts about important issues to cover as we prepare the day's agenda. Thanks for your continued support of OWA and women design professionals!
