The Trachtenberg Office was represented at last evening at Montgomery Women’s Annual Meeting held at a private home in Chevy Chase, MD. The event was a catered affair with delicious food and lively conversation. Colleagues and friends gathered to network and catch up on Montgomery County politics. Most of the dialogue focused on the 2010 budget cuts for the county. In addition, members voted on officers for the upcoming year as well as discussed committees and future events. Many founding members of Montgomery Women attended the annual meeting.
The goal of Montgomery Women is to encourage leadership roles for women in elected office, boardrooms and communities. The organization is a non-partisan leadership and political action committee to provide a forum for women’s voices for Montgomery County. Throughout the year, Montgomery Women sponsors briefings, holds leadership forums and hosts networking events. Councilmember Trachtenberg as well as members of her staff are proud members of Montgomery Women. For more information on this organization, go to wwww.montgomerywomen.org.
