Save the Date: Unofficial MSPM Happy Hour

From organizer, Anna Matsiras:

SAVE THE DATE for another (unofficial) MSPM Happy Hour on Thursday, February 9th @ 6pm!!  We will (95% positive) be holding the event at The Laughing Man Tavern near Metro Center … They have been extremely enjoyable thus far so we’re going to open it up to all students in the program so we can start using these as networking events & “getting to know your peers over beers.” You wouldn’t believe how much we can start learning from each other’s business success and ambitions! Unfortunately, I don’t have everyone’s email (hence, the sign-up problem for the last happy hour) so I will need to rely on everyone to forward the invite around when I set it up this weekend.

Please contact Anna (see Directory for contact or email mspminfo@gwu.edu) if you would like to be included in email announcements about unofficial social and networking events.  Thanks for organizing, Anna!
