June 8 Happy Hour

Looking forward to seeing more smiling faces at next Wednesday's networking evening – Wed June 8 6:30pm, again upstairs at Angel City Brewery in the Arts District. Continue conversations, make new connections and bring your ideas for fall programming. Free drink tickets to the first 15 arrivals. 


• Welcome Anne-Marie Williams as a new co-organizer of our group. You may have met her in April, when Eisner Pediatric and Family Medical Center (where she's marketing manager) hosted our event. 

• And bid a fond farewell to Joe Newlin, now driving cross country to proudly accompany his wife to her post-doc in Chicago.

Measuring Impact was a big topic at our May event on Social Impact Startups - thanks again to everyone who joined the conversation. What to measure? How to measure? How to report? Who will care either way? Needless to say, we couldn't address these issues properly in the time allowed. So, let's have a conversation dedicated to how social impact organizations measure our impact in the world.

Are you someone who's a good resource for this 'measuring impact' discussion or do you know someone who is? Reach out directly to the organizers at mwprojas@gmail.com.
