      The format for this October quarterly meeting will allow guide members to be scheduled for mini-interviews and become better acquainted with potential employers.  See RSVP info below.



      This meeting will be like “Speed Dating”. One area will be set up as a waiting room. Our usual quarterly meeting room will be set up with a table for each company that is participating in the interview sessions. There will be three chairs for three guides at each table, plus chair(s) for representative(s) from each company. 

                Each interview session with a single company will last 15 minutes. Each of the three guides at the table will have time to give their short “elevator speech.” Then the company representatives and guides will be able to ask each other questions.

                Meeting session times will be set up from 5:00 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. A sound will signal the end of each 15-minute session, at which time all guides immediately will move to their next appointment (with another company) or leave the room if they don’t have a meeting scheduled.

                A nearby area will be set up with refreshments, as a waiting room, and as a place for members to socialize.

      RSVP – If you RSVP online, you will be asked:

      a) I want to have someone from my company Exhibit/Interview.

      b) I am a guide, will send my resume by Sept 15 and want to interview.

      c) I do not want to interview, but will attend and help with logistics (sign in, human arrow, wayfinding) that night.

      d) I plan to attend to socialize.

      If you want to RSVP via email or if you have questions, contact Sharon Sylvester at sharonsyl2@hotmail.com. Be certain to advise your level of participation by selecting a, b, c, or d!


      We would ask that everyone commit as early as possible, ideally RSVPING on or before SEPTEMBER 15.
