This is the first in a series of new meetings to help give our members another, more personal avenue to make connections with other members, as well explore their own professional goals. The organizers of this event is our new Career Development Board Committee. Sara Eve Fuentes is the committee's Chair and Marilyn Specht.
The talks are designed to focus on career development and provide support and learning opportunities for those members looking for employment, a new career transition, or even just looking to advance up the corporate ladder. Each talk will have it's own topic, or topics, along the lines of what members have said they'd like to see, and we plan on having them at least once a month for now. We'd also like the talks to include opportunities within the mentorship program that will give members yet another avenue to network and utilize potential resources of other members, such as alumni events or potential job opportunities within companies where members work.
We are still fleshing out some of the details and we'd like to be somewhat flexible as we progress so that we're sure to be providing as many opportunities along the lines of what member need and feedback is. We're also hoping to possible test turnout on a weekend vs. a weekday, just to see how we can make these as accessible to as many people as possible.
And of course, we're always open to suggestions on other opportunities to explore or ways to improve.
