Updates and Jobs for 1/19/2011

First things first: a huge note of congratulations to our partner in crime Jeff Mackey, aka “The Voice Of Reason” among our little triumvirate, on the birth of his son James early Monday morning.  You can tell that both of his parents are over-achieving project management types, because he came in a week ahead of schedule!  Sidenote: You can also tell that he’s Jeff’s son because he had absolutely no consideration for all of the plans and timetables that his mother had in mind…but I digress… 🙂

In all seriousness, congratulations to Jeff and his wife on this new arrival.  Couldn’t possibly be happier for you both!

Now, as to the regular updates…

Our next event will be one of our Pink Slip Party events, this time out in Utica.  For details, check out:

If you get the chance, I would check out the update from Monday which is still here – for some tips and hints on getting the most out of our group.

I’ve had several people shoot me links to this article:, which pretty much just reinforces our message.  We gave you the Ten Commandments of Networking some time ago, and they’re just as true today as the day they were published originally.

Oh, and “like” us on Facebook.  Our page out there is feeling neglected:
