1. AGENDA FOR TUESDAY, 11/22/11:
0700-0730: INTRODUCTIONS & ASSISTANCE
During introductions we invite you to tell us how things are going professionally or personally, and to mention any networking needs we might be able to help with. This can include job search assistance, business advice, referrals, or other forms of networking assistance. Chances are someone in the group will have some good contacts in whatever field or industry you need help with.
State of the BizNet. We'll take some time to review how we're doing as a group, with particular focus on any adjustments that might improve our effectiveness as a resource for each other. We haven't had one of these discussions in quite some time, so let's hear your ideas on what's working, what's not, and what else we could try to further serve each other.
2. UPCOMING TUESDAY PROGRAMS:
11/29/11: Speaker tentatively scheduled (to be confirmed).
12/6/11: Speaker tentatively scheduled (to be confirmed).
We have speakers penciled in for the next few Tuesdays, but if there's one you'd like to invite sometime soon, or if you'd like to lead a discussion yourself, just let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we'll get it onto the schedule.
