2nd annual PCC Employment Outreach Event

I am pleased to launch my “pay it forward” action plan for 2013 with the second annual Princeton Community Church (PCC) Employment Outreach Event. In 2011, I was in between jobs and attended the PCC employment support group. I learned of a planned conference and jumped in to help plan our inaugural event in January 2012. For our 2013 event, I am fortunate to serve as a volunteer leader for this event in two organizations: Toastmasters International and PCC.

As I travel the Toastmasters journey to achieve my DTM, I am working on my High Performance Leadership event. The PCC Employment Outreach Event is the perfect match for requirements and fulfillment. Three other volunteer leaders and I started crafting the vision in January 2012. We then began the active planning steps.

The result: the second annual PCC Employment Outreach Event in Pennington, NJ on January 19, 2013 is fully staffed and open for registration at pcceoe.eventbrite.com. Our program is written, our volunteers are recruited, and our hopes are high. We have garnered local news coverage, too!

Several fellow Princeton Toastmasters are joining me as event presenters: Michelle Lewis, CC, and Thaine Shetter, DTM; and our keynote speaker Marianne Grady, CC. Other presenters include Princeton Toastmasters Past President Ed Andriessen. Michelle and Thaine also serve as my leadership guidance committee.

This all-community, all-welcome, all-about-getting-hired conference is free and hosted by Princeton Community Church for the benefit of our local NJ and PA communities. Registration is required www.pcceoe.eventbrite.com. RSVP before January 16, 2013 to secure your seat. Capacity is 85 attendees.

Thank you to my fellow Toastmasters for lending their talent and their time. The Toastmasters high performance leadership program helped me develop a mission and vision, set goals, plan well, identify values, and build a team. Thank you, Toastmasters, for helping make me a leader.
