Mark your 2016 calendars for the annual AAUW Interbranch Council Luncheon, scheduled for Saturday, January 23, at Plates Cafe. Once again we will meet with members from other area branches for a delicious meal, socializing, and presentations from two recipients of AAUW fellowships.
Registration and socializing will begin at 11:30 a.m., and the event runs until 2 p.m. Plates is located at 14 Business Park Way.
Helen Rocha, AAUW Fellow & IBC Luncheon Speaker
Our first featured speaker is Helen Rocha. She has received a Career Development Grant to assist her this year as she pursues a master’s degree in Civil Engineering with a concentration in engineering management. A licensed civil engineer, she is passionate about helping communities with their water supplies and infrastructure. She also mentors engineering students at California State University, Sacramento.
Swati Patel, AAUW Fellow & IBC Luncheon Speaker
Our other speaker, Swati Patel, is the recipient of an American Fellowship and is working on a Ph.D. at U.C. Davis in Applied Mathematics. She is fascinated by the ways evolution shaped the diverse organisms in today’s world and how math can be developed to study this. Her work is on modeling the feedbacks between ecological processes and evolutionary processes to understand how these feedbacks affect species coexistence.
Those who attend will have a choice of entrees: Chicken Breast Roulades, Tuscan Bowtie Pasta with pine nuts and mushrooms (vegetarian), or Classic Chicken Caesar Salad. Side salads, dessert, rolls and beverages are included with the meal, and wine will be available for purchase.
