Back in July I co-hosted an event that combined our local career, HR, and recruiter blogger's with John Sumser as he started his Recruiting Roadshow events. We had 138 professionals and a few sponsors for a morning event at Best Buy that was a huge success.

Literally within days of our Minneapolis event I was asked when the next one would be. Well, it took a little longer than I had hoped (my fault) but I have announced our next event:
November 30, 2007
8:00 am – 12 pm
12 pm – 2 pm Lunch and Networking
Best Buy Headquarters
I am working out some logistics, speakers and topics but the date, time and location is confirmed.
I did a soft launch of a social networking site using the Ning platform to help with communication of events, networking of area professionals, and sharing of information. You can find that site by clicking Minnesota Recruiters. The site is password protected and is open to those in Minnesota whose job function includes recruiting in some form or fashion.
Nicole “Wingman” St. Martin will be working on the registration page www.recruitingroadshowevent.com and she is changing the system we use for the RSVP’s.
If you would like to be added to the email list send me a message, firstname.lastname@example.org, and include your name, title, and employer name.
I need to thank some friends who have been supporting this effort. Without them this effort would not be possible:
Arbita, www.arbita.net, and Don Ramer have been supporting this effort from the very beginning and will be helping with some site design and marketing materials for future events.
CollegeRecruiter.com, www.collegerecruiter.com, and Steven Rothberg will help me publicize this group and future events.
Nicole St. Martin, Search Marketing Analyst at HotGigs, has volunteered to continue being my “Wingman” and helping with the web site, event registration and logistics. Nicole writes the blog HR Search Marketing, www.hrsearchmarketing.com.
