The group started in May 2003 and has grown each month, with about 70 people attending the December meeting.
We generally let people mix and mingle for the first 10-15 minutes, says Mary Ann Schomaker, assistant director of programming for the national alumni association. Then we have a speaker. Following the short talk, and time permitting, we let everyone introduce themselves and give a one-minute commercial about themselves.
The networking group also was featured in the Chapter Spotlight in the Fall 2003 issue of Xavier magazine.
The group meets on the first Friday of each month from 8:00 a.m.-9:00 a.m. The January 2004 meeting will be on the second Friday of the month, since the university is closed on the first Friday for the holidays.
