Registration and networking:   5:00 to 5:30 pm
Program:  5:30 to 7:00 pm

EaRN Board members Janis Petrini and Jeff Geshel "tell stories" of their professional journeys from getting a paycheck working for someone else to becoming their own income generator while simultaneously helping others find work and stay employable. The evening begins with checking in, and networking with snacks before hearing their stories, followed by continued "orchestrated" networking and conversation.
