We will devote the first hour, from 10 to 11 AM to the following agenda: Welcome, Landings, Announcements, New Member Intros, and Needs & Leads. Please arrive early, so we can make every effort to start on time. In the second hour, Amy will be providing an overview of the STEMPower program.

Amy will also discuss trends from employers’ perspective and suggest tools and techniques for jobseekers to better position themselves in a dynamic global marketplace.

Recap of HNG Meeting of August 5, 2011:
Our 58th meeting of HNG had 19 people, this is 10 less than the previous meeting, and one signed the New Member list. Barbara McKee was our facilitator. There were five introduction speeches.

Our speaker, Gail Greenberg, cancelled on Thursday because she was not feeling well, so we went to Plan B and conducted an interview question workshop, which, as always, went over very well.
