Monthly Meetings

 Judy Lee of DCI to Speak at Our Feb. 21 Meeting at Mundo Latino, No. Bergen 

Judy Lee, a director at Development Counselors International (DCI), who is knowledgeable about tourism and economic development, will be the speaker at our Saturday, February 21noon meeting at Mundo Latino, 8619 Bergenline Avenue, North Bergen. The cost is $22 and the telephone number there is 201-861-6902. This is a return visit to this restaurant, where we were at in January, because it has great food, a friendly management and a private room.

Judy, who lives in New Jersey, has worked on media campaigns recently for the State of New Jersey (post-Sandy recovery), Jersey City (positioning it as a place to live, work and play) and Atlantic City (a location in which to invest). She has a great deal of information and insights to convey to our members and guests.

We thank Dan Schlossberg for the speaker and Gail Gerson of Wine & Dine for the restaurant.
