United Way NCA Young Leaders' Fall "Mix and Mingle"

On Wednesday, October 6th, dozens joined the Young Leaders at Pepco’s Edison Gallery to drink wine, munch snacks from local eateries and admire the “Breakthrough! Twenty Years After German Unification” exhibit. And to thank a few of our amazing speakers from our Leadership Breakfast Series. 

Bill Hanbury, President and CEO of United Way NCA, spoke about the important role United Way plays in the National Capital Area, and about the important role each of us can play by giving back to and connecting with our community. Connie Bertram, a partner at Cooley Godward Kronish LLP, spoke of her own 20 year history with United Way; from fundraising to serving as the organization's legal counsel. We had an amazing time meeting new friends and talking again with our Breakfast speakers. Jim Dinegar, President and CEO of the Greater Washington Board of Trade, was also in attendance!

Keep an eye out for upcoming Young Leader events and join us as we serve the community, network with our peers and gain inspiration and wisdom from great leaders in our region.

A special thank you to our sponsors, who contributed to the enjoyment of the event: Acacia Bistro, Austin Grill, Clyde’s Gallery Place, Georgetown Cupcake and Sonoma.

United Way Young Leader
