In what we are calling the "speed dating" of mentoring, members will have the opportunity to take part in a series of up to five round-table discussions, focused on professional development and career advancement. The table leaders will facilitate peer-to-peer mentoring, based on the concept that we all have something valuable to teach, as well as to learn. This is a member-only event.

Quitting a job and/or accepting it's the right time for a change deserves congratulations. It takes courage, drive and a self-awareness to know when things must change, and then to go and make it happen. Join us at this meetup to tap into the collective expertise of our members. And to share your hard-won advice too!
Scott McDougall Photography (http://bit.ly/2tQ2mJH) will be on-hand to take current headshots for those in-between the mini-meetings.
