Welcome to the EA DC Newsletter! Below are some of the events and resources that may be of interest to you this month. If you have something you'd like to include in next month's newsletter please email us! If this was forwarded to you, you can subscribe here.


The organizer team is putting together a new community directory where you can share your contact information and how you can be helpful to other EAs in the group. This is 100% optional but we’d be extremely grateful if you would consider sharing your information. The directory will be especially useful to new members looking to connect with EAs in the city with similar interests and career goals and can give you a chance to chat with a lot of cool people looking to learn more about what you do. You can also use it to share ways you could use help!

You can use this form to add your info to the directory, which will appear on this table. Please email us if you’d like any info you share changed or removed.
