Dine-Around Series


Are you working toward your Gold Award? Have you already earned your Gold Award? If so, we'd love to have you join us for one of our Dine-Arounds this season.


What's a Dine-Around? Dine-Arounds are informal dinners, brunches, teas or other events that are hosted by Women's Advisory Board members at their homes or businesses.  They are a unique chance to gain insight from successful women and will prove to be an amazing networking session.


The most up to date Dine-Around information can be found at and is available in the weekly e-edition and TEEN edition.

For most of human history, the planets and stars have only been tiny points of light, floating in a dark sky many millions–or even trillions–of miles away. People begun by organizing the sky into constellations, cataloging the stars by brightness, and then the invention of the telescope harnessed the power of light and expanded our view! Now, it's your turn to explore light and discover what it teaches us about the Universe!

SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER: Denise Hall from NASA, Senior Strategic Communication Specialist/Communications Lead for the Advanced Exploration Systems (AES) Division
