The DPMI Monterey summer 2013 class had its first happy hour on Wednesday evening at My Attic on Alvarado Street.  Students of the program, alumni, and professionals from the development world had a great time while sharing their experiences and getting to know each other.
Eileen Burke, Director of Media & Communications for Save the Children, and Professor Beryl Levinger, chair of the MIIS Public Administration program, were among the attendees. Dr. Levinger welcomed guests to the happy hour, introduced the summer 2013 DPMI program, and shared some of her expertise about the development world.

Ms. Burke spoke of the importance of communications and social media for organizations and gave valuable advice on how to work productively with the media and best utilize social media. Ms. Burke also told guests about her background and passed on career advice to the attendees. Students and alumni asked questions and had enlightening conversations about their development philosophies.
This was a very happy ending of a long day of intense class work. Guests left the happy hour with big smiles on their faces, having formed stronger bonds with their colleagues.
