    The Giants game cut into attendance but a lot of us volunteered and it solidified the group support that is so strong in this meetup. The services the vendors had to offer was an eye opener. There are a lot of training and educational tools out there.

    Thank you to George, Jim, Martin, DJ, Vince, Kathy and others who worked for months to plan and launch this event; you were a joy to work with! Kudos to Molly and all of the the day-of-the-event VG and SFPCN folks who came out to do set-up and volunteer, and to the agencies and vendors who came and gave their time. The event would not have happened without you. We didn't get quite the turnout we hoped for/were expecting, but I saw some great connections being made. Bravo, everyone!

    The VG staff will set-up for the Fair. The SFPCN volunteers will work as concierges, helpers, and may help with the take-down. You will receive a FAQS sheet to assist you. The most important question we will ask is "how long will you be here?," so we can use your time to everyone's advantage. You may find vendors that benefit your career investigations, so please come prepared to be both a volunteer and a participant.
