On February 28th, we are hosting a Tri-Branch meeting

at the lovely Homeward Bound facility in Novato, a group similar to our COTS organization.  

The keynote speaker will be Jane Winter, Executive Director of the San Francisco-Marin YWCA.  She will be talking about her AAUW Community Action Award-winning program which supports older women trying to re-enter the work force, as well issues around such ‘hot topic’ items as the minimum/living wage. Like Elece, Jane is a dynamic speaker and very entertaining. Again, I hope many of you will attend as this is a wonderful opportunity for gaining new insights, as well as meeting a number of interesting members from other branches in the area.
