The Montgomery County Commission for Women and our many co-sponsoring organizations invite you to the 2014 Women's Legislative Briefing.
Registration begins at noon with light refreshments, and the conference will open with a keynote address followed by a panel discussion on Women's Issues in Congress. Compelling seminars on legislation in the Maryland General Assembly will fill out the afternoon.
New This year: special seminars will be offered for students in grades 8 - 12, accompanied by a parent or chaperone. (The program we anticipate using will be built around a documentary rated for ages 13 and up by Common Sense Media and TV Parental Guidelines.)
