We actually weren't going to have a meetup this Wednesday, but we've had a last-minute opportunity drop in our lap, so I thought this might be a nice opportunity to get our new members to come out. So I especially want to invite you if you recently joined ADVAnet, maybe you're even new to Austin or new to the design industry...come and meet the rest of us, and have some free food while you're at it. If you're not new... come anyway!
So we WILL be meeting Wednesday July 10th at 7pm at Yarborough Branch Library. We'll have a guest from the Leap To Success project bringing FREE PIZZA and drinks for us, to tell those of you who are looking for work how to get the chance to volunteer your services for area non-profits. In exchange you would get a solid project you can put on your resume (especially useful if you have a gap right now) and networking connections to people who could help you find permanent employment.
We'll also be taking the opportunity to discuss future ideas for meetups, including what kinds of presentations and programs you'd like to see. I'm especially looking for people who would like to give a presentation of some kind, even a short one, like a tutorial, how-to or demo. We've had a couple of really good ones from our members in the past few weeks, it would make a nice thing to be able to add to your resume or portfolio site.
You can learn about Leap To Success at their website (http://leaptosuccessatx.org). Otherwise come Wednesday night, enjoy some free food and pitch in on planning our future!
