  • 2016 Women’s Legislative Briefing:
  • The January 31, 2016 Women’s Legislative Briefing was a huge success, and the MCW played a robust role in this annual event. An audience of over 500 attended the opening session and ten seminars that comprised the conference. MCW Chair Lee Bachu participated in the Presidents’ Networking Session preceding the opening of the conference. Four Commissioners – Yun Jung Yang, Tammy Bresnahan, Pat Cornish and Homayara Aziz – participated as panelists in the seminars. The MCW supported the conference with an “Opal Sponsorship” ($250) which included an exhibit table at the event. A beautiful display of the MCW’s work was created for this purpose and staffed by the MCW’s new Management Associate Tammy Wise, with help from Commissioners Yun Yang and Corinna Shen. Carol Jaar Sepe also attended representing the MCW. Commissioner Lorna Forde, in her role as First Vice President of the Montgomery County Commission for Women, chaired the planning committee for the Briefing. MCW Executive Director represented the MCW on the planning committee.
