End Of September Philadelphia Networking Event

Who is excited for the start of September?  I sure am, with the start of the college football season and the beginning of the NFL regular season (I really cannot get into pre-season as much as others).  There will also be September call-ups in baseball and the resumption of basketball.  And if you are in Philadelphia at the end of the month, you can also head to a networking event for people in the sports business.

What: Philadelphia Networking Event

Where: The Field House (map)

When: September 30, 2010 (6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.)

As is the norm with these types of events, the hosts kindly ask that you do not bring a resume.  Contact Caleb Mezzy if you have any questions leading up to the event.
