After more than two and an half years of facilitating monthly NET meetings and Saturday morning workshops, the NET facilitators have come to conclude that individual coaching and counseling may be more useful for our small number of NET members than meeting monthly. Most of our members have landed, returned to school, or gone on to build the “portfolio” model of income we have been advocating. As an alternative to monthly meetings, the facilitators have agreed to offering a more personalized NET service.
Effective immediately we are suspending our monthly meeting format. Instead, we will offer the following:
- A single point of contact: a NET Help Line. (Brayton Bowen, 502-558-2154; firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Brayton will connect any candidate who calls or emails with a facilitator, who can work one-on-one with that person.
- We will continue to publish the bi-weekly (sometimes more or less frequent) newsletters, featuring job leads, updates, tips, etc.
- We will continue to offer quarterly workshops, depending on the level of need and interest, for purposes of training.
- If we have a unique event or special speaker, we will plan an evening or Saturday AM meeting.
For further information, please contact: Brayton Bowen (502-558-2154); Jack Allen (502-479-8439). [Click here] for NET Mission Statement.
