Leadership group hosts political branding talk



H-RoC, an organization created to inspire more Clark County women to run for public office, will host its quarterly “cocktails and conversation” event 6 p.m. Jan. 24 in the upstairs dining room of the Grant House, 1101 Officers Row, in Vancouver.

The discussion will focus on developing a political brand, focusing especially on voice, etiquette and image. Guest speakers include former Clark Public Utilities District Commissioner Carol Curtis, former legislator and Clark County commissioner Betty Sue Morris, Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce President Kelly Parker, and Cheryl Ledoux, owner of The Difference, a personal style consulting company.

The event is free, and doors open at 5:30 p.m. The event will include complimentary appetizers; guests can buy their own cocktails.

Seating is limited to 25. RSVP by emailing letstalk@h-roc.org.

H-RoC is a political action committee. Its name is short for the adage, “the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.”
