May & June Newsletter

May brought mentoring and thoughts of fun networking events in the coming months to WICT Northern California.  We enjoyed seeing so many new faces in the crowd at our Mentoring Kickoff event.  Thank you to everyone who took part in the launch of this great program providing opportunities for professional development.  And special thanks to our sponsors Comcast and Consolidated Communications.

We have a fun slate of summer activites coming up!  Next up is our networking event "A Taste of WICT," where we invite you to join us for an early evening of wine and appetizers, while we share the many benefits of being a member.  Last year's "A Taste of WICT" event was a top-rated favorite by our members.  So we are bringing it to you again-better than ever-at the beautiful rooftop location "The 360" in downtown San Francisco.  More details about the "Taste of WICT" event are available here.
