More Info on Summer Networking Dinners

This May Illustration was sent in by Nancy Cote. You will be meeting her on this coming Illustrator Saturday, so this is just a teaser.

Last week I posted a date for a Networking Dinner in June, after saying months ago that we would have dinners in June, July, and August. I am working on making that happen. Here is what I have so far. Please do not wait to sign up. As always we do not make money on these dinners, so they will be cancelled if we do not get a good response.

Date: June 26th
Time: 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm Networking, dinner, dessert
Cost: $145 per person. Includes dinner and drink.
Place: Private Room Morton’s Steakhouse 551 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 10017

  1. Can’t wait for the dinners! And I LOVE these cats! Their expressions are priceless, and they even have little “heart” noses 🙂
