Women in Housing & Finance Pennsylvania (WHF-PA) hosted a successful “Meet & Greet” in Harrisburg on Wednesday September 18, 2019. Held on the rooftop of Café 1500, over a dozen people from different industry backgrounds attended. The goal of the event was to provide a casual forum for current and future WHF-PA members in Central PA to network and share knowledge.
Attendees enjoyed a serene setting with sunlit views of Harrisburg, a delicious hors d’oeuvre spread, a full rooftop bar, and a hit playlist from the DJ. A variety of industry backgrounds were represented, from supportive services to finance to legal to construction, allowing everyone to expand their network.
A free membership was raffled, and we welcome new member Barbara Huggins of Self-Determination Housing Project of Pennsylvania to WHF-PA!
- Everyone was welcoming and interested in talking.
- Fabulous rooftop view and atmosphere.
- Beautiful venue with lots of interesting people to talk to.
- This is a great opportunity for networking. I hope there will be more in Central, PA soon.
- Would like to see more events similar to this in the Harrisburg area.
- Do it more often!
WHF-PA is thankful for the event sponsors – RBC Capital Markets, CohnReznick, McKonly & Asbury and Presbyterian Senior Living – who collectively donated $1,000. With continued support from organizations like these, WHF-PA can keep organizing networking events, creating educational opportunities and connecting women in housing, finance, and development.
Save the date for the WHF-PA Annual Meeting on November 18th at 10am before the Homes within Reach Conference! See you there!
I wish I could have made it!! It seemed like a wonderful event!
