The 50+ Job-seekers Networking Program starts next week!

Happy new year everybody!

Thanks to the tireless efforts of Susan D. Kelly, Program Director, plus the outpouring of support by many of you----the program has been funded by the Commonwealth for 2021!

This year, the main program will consist of 12 topics, and each topic will be offered three times.

The general schedule is for the 1st and 3rd Monday, the 2nd and 4th Tuesday, and the 2nd and 4th Friday of a month. 

For example, The first topic--Self-assessment, Career Pathways, and Ageism--is offered

Tuesday, January 12th 10:00 am – 12 pm

Friday, January 15th 1:00 pm – 3 pm

Monday, January 18th 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

There's no excuse not to sign up. Three different days; three different times!
That's 36 events!

In addition, there will be a follow-up G2G (give to get) Networking event on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of a month. Come for networking; come to ask followup questions about the week's previous topic.


Every month through June, the program will offer a  guest speaker event. The plan is to offer it mainly on Thursdays, but the first guest speaker event--Pivot Your Job-search in 2021--is scheduled for Wednesday January 27th.

The program also includes the Greater Lowell Networking Group that meets the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of a month with host Debbi Hope.

You get the 12 topics---offered 3 times---That's 36 events!
You get the eight G2G networking events!
You get 6 guest speaker events!
And if you sign up now, you get access to 6 Greater Lowell Networking Group events!
