1. AGENDA FOR TUESDAY, 11/16/10:
0700-0800: OPEN FORUM. This week the floor is yours for discussion on topics of general interest or personal updates. And as always, we'll do our best to assist with job searches, business advice, referrals, and other networking needs. Thanks to all who arranged such great speakers (or led a talk yourself) this past few months.
2. NEW MEETING LOCATION (same hotel, but new spot):
Beginning this week we'll meet inside the coffee shop of the Marriott - DTC. The new GM of the hotel has kindly arranged to reserve the seating area of the coffee shop for our use every Tuesday morning. There is ample seating and it's a bit off to the side of the main coffee operation, so we think this will be a better situation for us long-term. The spot where we've been meeting (next to the restaurant operation) has become more of an issue in recent months due to the limited seating, the large TV which must remain on, and the occasional disruptions for us and for the hotel. Having our own reserved space inside the coffee shop should work out better for us.
3. ITEM OF INTEREST: HBR Article on Characteristics of Military Leaders That are Desirable in the Civilian Job Market.
Thanks to Ron Meier (USMA '66) for passing along this link: http://blogs.hbr.org/frontline-leadership/2010/10/how-cadets-learn-to-be-clutch.html
