Lunch, Learn, Network, Grow

Our monthly luncheon meetings are held on the first Wednesday of every month (except when otherwise announced) at Union Jack's British Pub, located at 2072 Somerville Road in Annapolis. 

Meetings begin at 11:30 am with networking, with lunch promptly served at noon as the program gets underway.  After the meal, there is additional time to network prior to the featured speaker's presentation.  The meeting concludes by 1:30 pm.

The cost to attend is $27 for members and $37 for non-members.  Students are welcome to attend at the discounted $20 student rate.  An additional fee of $5 per person applies to all reservations made after 5 PM the Tuesday before the luncheon and applies to walk-ins (both members and non-members) on the day of the luncheon.  

All reservations must be accompanied by payment; and advance reservations are considered guaranteed. Your meeting fee not only covers your meal cost but substantially helps fund the organization's professional operation.
