PMIWDC Reston Luncheon Resources

Each month, Nicholas Hartigan and Chris Talmont, the Co-Chairs of the PMIWDC Reston Luncheon committee, strive to bring you interesting and informative speakers from a wide range of professions. They present these speakers to you in a casual restaurant setting that allows you to network with other professionals of the PMI. All restaurant venues offer maximum seating of approximately 50 guests and each month the event sells out. Pre-registration is required.

Luncheons are held very third Wednesday of the month at various locations throughout Reston. If you are interested in attending one of these Luncheons, you can visit the PMIWDC registration page. If you are interested in presenting please contact us. When made available, photos and past presentations can also be viewed here.
