Monthly Business Luncheon: July 19
AT GARDEN OF THE GODS Club & Resort - on July 19 - the SCWCC Monthly Business Luncheon welcomes the Director of the Division of Criminal Justice for the Colorado Department of Public Safety, Jeanne M. Smith, who will share Balancing Life and Leadership: How Humor Helped Me Survive.
Serving in her current role since 2007, Ms. Smith undertakes criminal justice policy, research, and trainings throughout the state, management of justice-related federal and state grant programs, oversight of community corrections, and crime victim rights protection. She is President of the National Criminal Justice Association and serves on the Colorado Witness Protection Board, the Colorado Criminal and Juvenile Justice Commission, plus multiple state committees and councils, and previously served as chair of the Juvenile Clemency Board under Governor Bill Ritter.
Ms. Smith also offers a unique view of the obstacles of elections, after she campaigned while pregnant to be elected District Attorney for Fourth Judicial District, and went on to serve from 1997-2005. She worked as a prosecutor in that office for a total of 22 years, and was featured on the Lt. Kenda Show to comment on several of her cases.
Earlier Ms. Smith was the Deputy Attorney General in charge of the Criminal Justice Section of the Colorado Attorney General’s office (2005-2007) and received her Juris Doctor from the University of Illinois College of Law and her B.A. from the University of Illinois with a major in Economics

Give yourself enough time to get situated - opt for on-site coffee and continental breakfast items (on the honor system to cover costs) - then get ready to spend some quality time with our growing and dynamic group of early-bird networkers.
The complex can be found just slightly south-and-east of Stargazers (off Pikes Peak) and offers plenty of lot and on-street free parking. You'll enter the main doors, locate elevators on the right (across from reception), then go down one level and the meeting room is to the immediate left. Bring plenty of business cards, and we'll see you then!
