Join WP+D for a networking brown bag on Wednesday, November 11 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. to discuss professional development and career plans with November's featured guest, Emy Brawley, Vice President of Conservation for Openlands.

Emy Brawley serves as Vice President of Conservation for Openlands, a fifty-two year old regional conservation organization based in Chicago.  In this capacity she manages the land protection, restoration, and stewardship programs for the organization and leads the formulation, coordination and accomplishment of conservation projects of significance across the region.  She also provides technical assistance on acquisition strategies to local governments, park districts, forest preserve districts and conservation districts, with an emphasis on buy-and-hold projects.  More recently her work has engaged the regional food system in an effort to advance access to land for local food farmers.  Emy currently serves as President of the Prairie State Conservation Coalition, the statewide coalition of Illinois land trusts; and chairs the Sustainability Committee for the Cook County Land Bank Authority.

This is a members-only event limited to five participants. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunches.

As with every WP+D Small Networking Lunch, registration will open at 12:00 p.m. the first day of the month during which the lunch will be held.  Registrations are taken on a first-come, first-served basis and typically fill up quickly.

Due to the popularity of these lunches, we ask that members register for no more than two consecutive lunches. If you have attended the past two lunches and are interested in attending this event, please e-mail us at wpdchicago@gmail.com asking to be put on the waitlist. If spaces become available or registration isn't full a week in advance, we will contact you.
