Communicators Network and Socialize in Our First “Mix and Mingle” for 2015

By Cori Bassett and Deb Harris, FCN Co-chairs
Thank you to all who came out to the FCN networking and social hour last night at Gordon Biersch Brewery! We had a great turnout with over 100 RSVPs from 40 different government agencies as well as the private sector. 

We enjoyed a cheerful evening as we talked with returned Peace Corps volunteers, members of the Inspector General community, college students and graduates who came out to learn more about the work we do in government, and many, many others.

Thank you all for sharing your backgrounds, work stories, and ideas. We hope you were able to make valuable new connections.

And special thanks to FCN’s External Relations and Outreach Coordinator Bernetta Reese for organizing the event! We hope to see you again at the next one!
