So there I was, up in Raleigh, NC again for meetings and a FOCM networking event was organized. The date, June 30, 2015; the location: San Jose Tacos & Tequila in Brier Creek Shops.
San Jose Tacos & Tequila
A big group showed up. Michelle Jacobson, after more than a year on FOCM Membership probationary status, received her Membership Card. And as it turned out, I also had neglected to capture on camera Sarah Meister’s card ceremony. Sarah has been a member in good standing for quite a while and a frequent attendee of events. The first time FOCM event attendee, John Icardi received his card. John and I hadn’t seen each other in quite a while and ran into each other on a plane, I think, or at a conference and reconnected.
