Last week was the Minnesota Recruiters Spring 2014 Conference and the 20th something event since it was started in 2007. I think this was #23.
This event had a couple of “mile markers” for me.
This was the first event that I had no role in since we started it. I went from co founder and coordinator to the advisory board and now a “has been”. My time is up.
It’s been a fun road and Jason Buss is doing a great job with the group.
The other part to this event and more significant to me… this was the first event I missed. I had some family stuff that needed my full attention and so for the first time when the question was asked, “How many have been to every event?” no one raised their hand.
I did watch the #mnrec Twitter stream and picked up some things to think about.
I saved a copy of it. Click
And here is a slide deck from Keith Hadley (@keithhadley) at CareerBuilder:
There are a couple of events in the coming weeks that Minnesota Recruiter and HR colleagues may have interest in, I will be attending both:
April 11th: Minnesota Technical Recruiters Network (MNTRN) “Just Do It … Right!” with Terry Petra
May 20th: Twin Cities Human Resources Association (TCHRA) Spring Conference
Yesterday while hanging out at CoCo Uptown I noticed the WordPress Wednesday group was there instead of CoCo Downtown Minneapolis. It sounds like they are going to do a couple of weeks a month at each location.
This is a group of really talented freelancers and consultants that have been meeting for a really long time. So if you are looking for a group to work and socialize with during the day check out the CoCo calendar to see where they will be.
If you have a project or have questions about WordPress I know a number of folks to pass you on to. Send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
