Bi-Annual Meet & Greet:

Agency Executive and Legislative Assistants​, March 8, 2019

Sponsored by: The Washington State Executive Assistants Group (EAG)

Thanks to the efforts of the Reception chairs, Melanie Hisaw & Denise Ross, and their team of volunteers, the 2019 EA/LA reception was a success! 
Attendees enjoyed the networking bingo game once they had their fill of the amazing refreshments available. One of the Legislative Assistants commented that EAG had the absolute best food they've had at an event so far this year!
Six people won prizes throughout the event. People were eagerly listening as ticket numbers were called out.
EAG member desiree Monroy was surprised when she returned to her desk after the reception. One of the LAs she met during the reception had already reached out to her and thanked her for being at today's event. 
Relationship building is essential in good working teams, so EAG considers the reception necessary to bridge between agencies and legislative members. 
Thank you to co-chairs Melanie Hisaw and Denise Ross. Thank you also to EAG members that assisted planning, preparing, baking, setting up and cleaning up! Shout out to Leslie Pope, Xyzlinda Marshall, Stacy Conway, Kristin Ritter, Lindsay Matthews, Beverly Ubias and Amanda Martinez.
