    I’m trying to find a web site for this group’s Southern California.Orange County chapter. Both email address for Orange county group and Los Angeles group are invalid. Anyone know about this?

    Good to see you at the 40Plus Board meeting. You had wanted us to post something on our 40Plus experience. I went through the program in 2001 — the second day of class was 9/11! We soldiered on and it was a great experience. I have served as the coordinator for the Monday meeting speaker program twice since graduating and have learned so much from our speakers. It was a long and winding trail to my current job as a marketing communications consultant for IBM but it all started with networking at a Monday morning meeting. There I met a fellow writer who had applied for a job at Booz Allen so I did, too. In contacting references for that application, I talked to a former boss who needed me to come help her right away. I worked part-time there in marketing and public relations and 2 years later the company was acquired by IBM. Had I not come to 40Plus for the Monday meeting, I would not have found my current job.

    I am helping to promote a job fair that my congressman is hosting on June 25 at TC Williams High School. How do we go about getting it listed on your blog?
