We're looking forward to meeting you. The Environmental and Health & Safety professional world is smaller than you think and it becomes even smaller when you meet some of the other women who do what you do. We know that whenever you come out, you'll enjoy meeting new members and connecting with old friends, even if your busy schedule keeps you from coming as often as you'd like. So, come and compare notes about companies, management systems, programs, jobs, new regulations, new food, old wine, and whatever else comes to mind. Be social with other women who "speak your work language" and live real lives.
The format for the group is a monthly dinner. Dinners are informal and social and are not meant for sales activity. Each member is responsible for their own dinner and beverage costs as there are no admission charges. As such, we try to select restaurants that are willing to provide separate checks, but occasionally restaurant charges will be combined with others at your table.
A note about dinner...in order to plan, like any event, it's important to be able to let the restaurant know how many people will be coming. So, we will really appreciate it when you RSVP for the dinners (and any other events). The restaurant will be happier, and we'll be able to coordinate more effectively. Likewise, if you were going to come, but no longer can make it, please DO change your "Yes" to a "No."
If you have a question or "share" for the group, feel free to ask via MeetUp or via an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Professional "shares" or questions in the past have included: job postings; recommendations on training resources; services someone needs (but can't find), and sharing related to EHS compliance issues. Please respect that this MeetUp distribution and WIEM's email list are not to be used for marketing products or services to members.
You can set up your membership to give you daily emails or weekly communication summaries. If you have any questions about how to use MeetUp to it's fullest (or easiest), just ask about that as well.
Thanks again for joining us. We look forward to seeing you soon!
