Re: [SFPCN] Should SFPCN change it's name?

Hi Jim,

That sounds like a wonderful idea! I like the idea of brainstorming! During my first experience with SFPCN, I got the strong sense that an enormous part of its spirit is more about a safe career development space then a competitive one. It's less Career Startup Inc and more like "Open Network" or one of my favorite job aggregator titles "Path.to", or we can totally just rip Robert Frost and call SFPCN:  "The Path Taken" and make the subtitle: And that has made all the difference"or something similar.

Hi everyone,

As part of our organizational development initiative we are considering adopting a new name. Key word there is considering. We have a designer working on a new logo and website images but before we get too far we wanted to explore whether it might be a good time to re-brand ourselves.

That said, we want to crowdsource with our membership in uncovering possible new titles for our great group. We thought a name that identifies SFPCN as a cutting edge, 21st century professional development/networking/ transition company would be appropriate. Like Career Startup Inc. Or Career Inc. What's your idea? If you think the current name is the right one please share that with us also.

As the value of this exercise will be expanded by the sharing of ideas cross membership for one time only I ask that you reply to the whole group in order to spur ideas. I realize this will result in a infusion of SFPCN email in everyone's Inbox.

For those uninterested I apologize for the email Inbox intrusion but this is a case of the "we" trumping the "I". Just delete, delete, delete and it will be over in a couple, three days. Thanks for your patience!!

So what do you think? An appropriate name for a our group? Lets hear it!
