The White Box Club™—appropriately named after the daunting white boxes many employees receive to "pack up their things"—was created to provide support, encouragement, resources, and networking opportunities to anyone who has found themselves laid off, unemployed, or in career transition.

Each of the semi-monthly meetings has a specific topic of focus and you can RSVP for any session, any time. TWBC meetings utilize coaches and experts from the field as guest speakers, so come and learn from the best! The meetings are also opportunities to meet and speak with others who are in career transition or thinking of new career options. Plus, it gives you a good reason to get out of the house and meet cool people who care and understand.

Meetup club members receive access to the Meetup site which includes links, tools, and materials from the meetings. Members are also encouraged to share information and resources with each other during networking time. Sometimes the best way to help ourselves is to provide support and encouragement to each other.

TWBC Twin Cities Meetup sessions are held on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM. Please see the Meetup group page for the schedule of topics and locations. For more information, visit:, or send a message to

We hope to see you at an upcoming Meetup!

"I wanted to say thank you for your support during my transition. The White Box Club meetings were relevant, helpful, and enjoyable. That, along with the other measures I took really helped me become clear on what I was looking for, helped me speak to that and what I bring to the table, as well as network and meet some new people."  Brett Eslinger, Member

"Interesting, intelligent, comfortable."  Richard Hotch, Member

"The guest speakers knowledge on the subject matter was top notch. The lessons learned will definitely help me market myself better with my resume and social media profiles. Thanks for being there as a resource." David Gifford, Member

"This is a great group to meet new people, make new friends, learn from others and ultimately better prepare you to network, pitch your brand and land the job that meets your needs. Having a group of peers that are willing to help and are their for support in every step of the journey is more meaningful than words can say." Mark Coil, Member

"Michael has one of the most interactive and well-organized Meetups I've seen - and I've been to many, many Meetups."  Soma D Jurgensen, Member, Owner: Intentional Growth Strategies
