Event Details



The Montgomery County Commission for Women and our many co-sponsoring organizations invite you to the 2016 Women's Legislative Briefing.The purpose of the Briefing is to inform the residents of our state about legislative proposals before the Maryland General Assembly and the U.S. Congress that address issues of specific concern to women.

For Co-sponsoring organizations that opt to participate, the President's Networking Session will be held from 11 a.m. until 12:15 p.m. with check-in at 10:30 a.m. The purpose of the networking session is to provide our sponsors an opportunity to learn about the work of other organizations committed to issues concerning women and families. Our hope is that this event will assist us all in identifying community partners addressing the same issues or implementing similar projects.
