Notes from 10/2 OCA Meeting, Job News!

Marci Kearney has accepted a contract Marketing Manager role with Microsoft and will start next week. Another example of the power of the OCA group... Marci heard about the job through our Kelly Resources connection, Marc Tolan.
Congrats, Marci!

Welcome to new members:
