Member Meet-Ups

Meet WISE Members at our monthly meet-up held the first Wednesday of every month from 6:00 PM-8:00 PM in Vinoteca at the Four Seasons downtown. Bring a potential member, friend or colleague to learn more about WISE Houston.

“I love to attend the monthly happy hours because it’s a great way to really connect and build relationships with other members. I  personally have been able to get to know the other members on a more personal level and I believe it’s due to the laid back atmosphere.” – Kerri Barber, Member since 2016
