Silicon Valley Women in HR...& Friends: Event, Volunteering, Location Request

Dear Friends,

Best wishes for a Healthy and Happy 2014!  

I have several announcements so please bear with me.  If you strictly want information about our next event, please look at the links to the right and go to Event Registration.  Before you go, please check out the links at the bottom of this page. 

We Need a New Meeting Location

We have been fortunate to have meetings at KeyPoint Credit Union for a few years, but now it's time to find a new location.  Our January event will be held there, but we need a new space.  We'd like to find a place in Santa Clara, San Jose or Sunnyvale near the freeway, and it has to be large enough to hold up to 100.  If you may know of a place and have a contact, please complete the form on this link.

Thanks to Volunteers of 2013

Marilyn Messer and Jenny Vonderwerth planned our year-end dinner and it was just lovely.  It was great seeing you in this relaxed environment and wonderful getting to know some of you a little better. Thank you, Marilyn and Jenny!

All year we had terrific events and interesting, informative speakers, and our Volunteers planned these events.  Thanks to all of our Volunteers!
