We Appreciate our Sponsors’ Continuing Support During these Challenging Times
MRWBA’s events, even the virtual ones, are possible thanks to the generosity of our sponsors. These sponsorships provide an opportunity to promote your brand to a demographic of well-educated, professional women with an average salary of $101,126 per year. E-mail email@example.com for details on available sponsorships.
I hope everyone is having a safe and fun summer. September will be here soon and we will be kicking off our programming for the 2021 - 2022 bar year. We have revamped the schedule for this bar year to maximize the social and networking opportunities for MRWBA members, while minimizing travel time and time away from other priorities (family, work, etc.)
We are planning to hold luncheons in even-numbered months and schedule other events in the odd-numbered months, mixing up the times of day and locations. Below is a preliminary/tentative schedule, so please mark your calendars and stay tuned for more detailed information.
Board meetings will be held during lunch on the 2nd Friday of each month, varying between in-person and virtual meetings to reduce travel time.
Please note this schedule was optimistically developed when COVID seemed to be receding, so there may be some changes announced as we go.
I look forward to seeing you all soon and getting the new bar year off to a great start!

In Case You Missed It - New Membership Category Added
When the Board held their retreat in June they voted to add a new membership category: Full Member, Public Service Worker. The category is for any member who works in federal, state, local or tribal government organizations (including schools and the military), public child or family service agencies, 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations, or tribal colleges or universities, and offers a reduced dues rate of $85 per year.
As with all of MRWBA's membership categories, it is possible to set up automatic renewals if you would like to do so.
If you are a Public Service worker, be sure to change your member category in your profile so that your renewal will be billed at the appropriate rate.
