 Email Referral Network

 All job referrals that come into the network from our ads, and word of mouth, are passed on to the members via email.  A member may apply for any position directly to the employer.  In order to maintain the network’s level of professionalism, we ask that you include the following every time you respond to a referral:  three business references, a cover letter, an updated resume and any other promotional material you may have developed.

 Meetings

 Meetings are the third Friday of the month.  We alternate between breakfast meetings and lunch meetings. There is no meeting in December.  Breakfast meetings begin at 8:30 AM and lunch meetings at 12:00 PM.  There is a charge to cover the meeting expenses only the cost of food.  Currently the charge for members is $35  Guests are welcome and the cost is $40 Reservations are required and once reserved, the meeting charge is assessed whether you attend or not.  Meeting notifications are sent via email.
