The networking group meets in Hopkinton, at St. John the Evangelist Church parish hall. The meeting occurs, from 10 to 12 noon, and will meet every other Friday. The parish hall has a capacity for 250 people and there is plenty of parking spaces in the parking lot and on the street. Around the perimeter of the parish hall are rooms to allow us to have focused network groups or for any other purpose we need. We chose every other Friday to allow everyone to attend the Acton Networking Group or any other networking group, if they wanted, on the Friday we do not meet.
We will maintain our close affiliation with Acton Networkers by using the same list-server to share information between the groups. Any e-mails specific to the Hopkinton Networking Group (HNG) will be indicated in the subject line either by "Hopkinton Networking Group" or "HNG"; this way anyone attending these meetings will know the e-mail is intended for them.
We will follow the following agenda items:
- Landings (with doughnuts)
- New member introductions
- Needs and Leads
- Speaker(s), Workshop, or Focus Group
For those new members who give their introductions, this is what we would like to know:
- Skills and Value Statement
- Where have you been?
- Where are you going?
- Your title
- Your target companies
- Geography of search
- Name and e-mail address
If anyone wants to join our team, please let one of us know; we could always use the extra help and input for ideas.
