The speaker engagement group finds and books speakers for our Monday morning meetings, our Thursday evening career management talks, and our Network with a Purpose events.

The job fairs group identifies and determines which job fairs 40Plus should attend as a vendor. This team registers 40Plus for the job fairs and plans them. This includes finding volunteers to man our booths and educating them about the value of our offerings. This group is responsible for all logistics involved in the event including getting our booth, marketing material, and volunteers to and from the job fairs. This is the perfect group for an individual with strong social skills and public speaking abilities. It is also a good group to join if you want to help on a sporadic basis.
