New Networking Meetings: Sweet Success or Bitter Defeat?

By Cindy Pao, Immediate Past President

It was a good turnout for the first networking meeting, on a Tuesday night. In all, 17 people gathered at Pappasito’s Cantina. Everyone chatted. Many ate. Some indulged in margaritas!

Fifteen of us waited for a mystery guest . . .

 The mystery guest was Melanie Flanders, visiting home from China. She came to the meeting on one of her final days in town!

We also had a visitor from Austin, who is searching for a new opportunity in Houston. Welcome to Houston, Steve (shown to Melanie’s left)!

After dinner, we divided the room into teams and played trivia. Team Taco – made up of Evalyn Shea, Ann Blankinship, and George Slaughter – won the round by giving the group an awesome list of reference books.

Words of Review

In this Organizer’s opinion, the evening was a success. We’re planning another meeting for December where we can talk shop, dine, and have a gift exchange (optional).

If you have any suggestions for the networking meetings, send me an email at pastpres@stc-houston.org.
