0700-0800: OPEN FORUM.
This week the floor is yours for general topics, personal updates, networking questions, and other discussion.
During the roundtable introductions, say as much or as little as you'd like about your current professional or personal focus, especially any networking needs. Chances are good that someone in the group will have advice, contacts, or recommendations on next steps. Even if you don't have immediate networking needs, come join us on Tuesday for the insightful discussion and long-term networking value.
