    Are you already registered for WEO's May meeting? Over 40 members ARE already registered, and we hope you are, too! See the guest list here if you're not sure.

    You're going to love WEO this month, because we've got something really special planned for you: OurWomen's Health Forum will feature WEO's own Mignon Cejalvo, plus two former WEOS: Pamela Jeanne and Kathleen Hensch-Fleming. We're also looking forward to spotlights by WEO members Sam Mikel of Scott Mikel & Associates, as well as a presentation from Wendee Dineen and Pamela Hunter of Hilights Salon. See all the meeting details here.

    If you're not on the Standing Reservation list, or you missed last meeting, reserve your place now--we don't want you to have to pay the late rate! Reserve by 3 p.m. on Wednesday, May 13, 2015 to take advantage of early pricing. Why the time change? Because we have to finalize our dinner reservation at the Heathman on Wednesday, May 13th, so any change to the reservation list after that is officially "late". Late registration is available until Friday, May 15th. Register here now.

    Can't wait to get together with your WEO sisters? The next WEO Women on the Side Coffee meeting is on Thursday, May 14th at the Java House in downtown Vancouver. Let us know you're coming here so we can look for you.

    See you soon!

    Sincerely,
    The WEO Programs Committee
