Message from our Brandeis Co-Presidents:

As your Co-Presidents, we are proud to be a part of this terrific organization. As we soon will enter our second year of our term, we marvel at the continued dedication and work of our Board members.

And to our members as well: we are grateful for your responding to recent requests for participation in upcoming projects; whether it is for making phone calls, preparing mailings, or expanding our community service outreach. We thank you.

We are proud to say that more and more members are joining our chapter. We now have 650 members, plus 37 members of other chapters who enjoy some of our study groups. Our Study Group Vice Presidents continue to open interesting new study groups, as well as second groups of the same topic in order to satisfy our members' requests .

This is an exciting and enjoyable time for us at Brandeis Conejo. We recently had a fascinating event with our guest speaker, Chris Denove who talked about his work as an analyst of mock juries in order to advise attorneys on potential jury outcomes. More than 100 people attended that interesting presentation.

Most recently we enjoyed our Books and Brunch at the beautiful Westlake Inn. We had more than 171 people listening to three interesting presenters about their experiences and knowledge, personal growth, and challenges while working in the entertainment industry. (see our "home" section.)

COMING UP: You can now pay your national dues. Don't wait! Google "Brandeis National Committee," and right there on the page there is a button saying RENEW. Click and it leads you to pay by credit card. It's easy and fast.

June 18 our new Board members will be installed. Come to Los Robles Country Club and enjoy a delicious lunch and entertainment as we welcome the new members and thank those who have served on our Board.

On June 20, Brandeis in Waltham Massachusetts is arranging a special event for us, and the other local chapters, at the Skirball Museum. There will be substantial appetizers, docent tours of the museum, and an art professor from Brandeis University will present. More details will be sent to us soon, from National.

August 21 is GAME DAY! We will play games and eat delicious food at the North Ranch Country Club for another GAME DAY! Be sure to bring your friends and your Mah Jong sets, your Bridge and Canasta cards, and sense of fun. Remember that a portion of your entrance fee goes to Brandeis' important research in neurodegenerative diseases. This next fiscal year, in particular, BNC funds will go towards the purchase of a costly and advanced new microscope to enhance their important research.

We look forward to seeing you at our events and our study groups. We are open to ideas and comments as we continue to grow and raise funds for Brandeis' research.

Your Co-Presidents,
