Recap of HNG Meeting of August 5, 2016
Our 172nd meeting had 30 people, this is 5 less than the previous meeting; eight signed the New Member list. Gil Krispien was our facilitator. There were eight introduction speeches.
We had a speaker, Bonnie Petrovich, who talked about the "Power of Your Thoughts." She was very good.
This comprised the following:
* How Thoughts Impact Your Career Efforts – Positively or Negatively – It's Your Choice!
* Explore tips, techniques and ah-has! for bringing the supportive influence of your thoughts to your job search.
* Ever wonder why some people get "breaks," good luck, and opportunities more easily than you?
Bonnie shared insights and strategies from her own, and some of her clients', experiences. Prepare to transform how you are approaching your job-search and your life!
Schedule for HNG Meetings:

September 2, 2016 Crystal Byron TBD
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 the first and third Friday of the month. 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 the first and third 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.
