WISE Huddles - Q2 *Rescheduled Date*

Tuesday, July 07, 2020, 7:00 pm

WISE Huddles were ideally designed to provide a fun, intimate in-person setting for new members to get to know each other better, but the WISE Board of Directors has decided to move the Q2 Huddle to a virtual event in order to keep all of our members safe!

All new members who have joined WISE Atlanta from March-June are invited to come meet our Chapter President, Sabrina Jenkins, and Chapter Vice President, Krista Massey. WISE Huddles is a laid back, relaxed, and great way for our new members to hear more about our chapter and get involved. If you were unable to join us for the Q1 Huddle, you're more than welcome to join this one! We hope you join us!

Note: This is a Members Only event for New Members.
