Agenda for Tuesday, 1/29/13


During group introductions, tell us what's new for you lately, especially any networking needs.  It's likely someone will be able to assist with referrals, advice, or other help with your particular need.  Even if you don't have immediate needs, consider joining us on Tuesday for the long-term networking value.


Major Charles Zakhem will talk about his experiences while serving in a liaison role in Jordan.  He is currently a Brigade S4 with the Colorado National Guard.  In a prior assignment, MAJ Zakhem served 2.5 years at the U.S. embassy in Jordan as a liaison for Colorado's state partnership with that country.

Thanks to David Graves (USMA '97) for arranging to have MAJ Zakhem speak with us this week.


-- 1/29/13 (this week):  Major Charles Zakhem - see above.
