I am not a member, but have decided to join. I think networking in our community is always beneficial. I am pretty new to recruiting so the opportunity to learn from others is always welcome.

Hope you have a great time at Kennedy.

If you decide to try a NWRA event. Let me know and I will meet up with you there.
