Such a heady agenda: Hobnobbing over cocktails with Gloria Steinem, Beverly Sills, Erica Jong and the like; croissants with New York City Mayor Edward Koch; luncheon with Kitty Carlisle, and a salute to Philippines President Corazon Aquino.
Those are just some of the activities that have been in store this week for three local members of the Trusteeship, the Orange County/Los Angeles chapter of the elite International Women's Forum.
Among those who left Tuesday for the group's New York City-based conference and gala were Orange County Supervisor Harriett M. Wieder; Judy B. Rosener, assistant dean of the UC Irvine School of Management, and Narda Zacchino, editor of the Orange County Edition of The Times.
The forum's stated purpose is to "bring together women of significant and diverse achievements in order to facilitate communication . . . allow them to exert their influence and discharge their responsibilities."
Other local chapter members include Kathryn Thompson, president of A&C Properties in Irvine; Jewel Plummer Cobb, president of Cal State Fullerton; state Sen. Marian Bergeson (R-Newport Beach); political consultant Eileen Padberg; state appellate court Judge Shiela Prell Sonenshine, and Betsy Sanders, vice president of Nordstrom.
