Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Liberty Station (map)

Sunday, November 14, 2021

2:00 – 4:00 PM

A professional headshot for your LinkedIn profile or portfolio can help establish your personal brand and get you noticed, but it can be expensive.

SDEMP is here to help! Join us at Stone Brewing in Liberty Station for food, drinks, and professional headshots at an accessible price.

Tickets are $10 and include 2 professional headshots that will be emailed to you after editing. Time slots are first come, first served. Parking at Liberty Station is free.

Don’t need a new headshot? Feel free to drop by and join your fellow EMPs for a brew. The Happy Hour is free to attend.

We look forward to introducing you to our new San Diego EMP board members and talking about the year ahead. We’ll also have games and prizes!
