NOTES from Meeting #22, June 19th @ SVC

WELCOME to 4 new members:
- Steve Andrews, creative director/art director - most recently with R&R Partners (Las Vegas)
(see one of Steve's most recent
TV spots)
- Christine Goetz, marketing communications - most recently with Safeco
- DF Hobbs, marketing advisor - currently freelancing w/ Andrews/Hobbs Design Co.
- Wendy Noritake, marketing communications - most recently with Wyndham Vacation Ownership

CONGRATS to Marci Servizi, who has accepted a job with Seattle's Union Gospel Mission as their Direct Response Manager. Good luck, Marci!!

LAST WEEK we saw a spike in attendance. Was it the weather??
Great conversations regarding a multitude of subjects:
- salary discussions/negotiations, and how they are difficult in certain situations - when folks are too qualified, or when companies are trying to lowball compensations given the current economy.

- career changes. Now is a good time, but now is when a lot of other people are thinking the same thing.
- current flurry of companies that appear to be hiring. (although there is still some skepticism that some places may still be just posting positions to appear healthy.)

- Thanks to those who voted for an OCA logo. See above for the winner.
