I can’t come to the event, should I still send in my resume?

No.  While we really do want to help people, the whole point of our group and our events is “networking”, not “being a resume forwarding service”.  If you know you can’t make it to our Pink Slip Party events, we really have to ask that you wait until after the event has passed, and then we’ll be more than happy to get them out as we can.  We also recommend that you join our LinkedIn group: http://www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=91763 as that’s where recruiters tend to post jobs that they want our members to know about, and you’re more than welcome to initiate contact with them that way.
