When a person relocates to a new city and they’re seeking to get acclimated to the social, cultural and civic scene — one typically searches for professional organization(s) that align with their interests. One of those organizations for me is the National Urban League Young Professionals.
Last week Tuesday, I attended the Urban League of Greater Dallas Young Professionals General Body meeting, and that same week I also attended its networking mixer in Fort Worth Texas @ Grace Restaurant; where I had a fabulous glass Cabernet Blend of Col Solare — they also hosted the group on a Trolley Ride of Downtown Fort Worth.
During the general body meeting, they were going around the room conducting ice-breaker-type introductions (I used to loathe doing this, until I learned the strategy behind it). They want everyone to know who’s in the room, in the event you want to network with someone regarding a job at said company, socially, or you just want to connect for whatever reason. Candice Quarles the President of the organization, implored everyone in the room to take advantage of this opportunity — I mean after-all — that’s the reason we made the decision to be there — TO CONNECT!
…I met a gentlemen from Milwaukee, Wisc. 🙂 #Awesome
