WE WILL HOLD A SEAT FOR THE FIRST 30 PEOPLE THAT RSVP THEIR ATTENDANCE. If you ask us to hold a seat for you, please make every effort to attend. How it works: 1. Each participant delivers an "elevator speech" letting the group know what type of job or specific business connection you are seeking. 2. The other participants share leads, connections and suggestions.ach participant delivers an "elevator speech" letting the group know what type of job or specific business connection you are seekingWhat to bring to each meeting: 1. Bring 20 copies of a ONE-PAGER -- a single piece of paper -- featuring job history, skills, objectives and contact info. If you distribute this page at the start of your presentation, fellow attendees are much better able to deliver feedback and ideas. 2. Bring a “tent card” with your name to place in front of your seat (a folded 8 ½ x 11 sheet of paper works great).Background: Originating in southern Pennsylvania, BENG is a voluntary association of business professionals founded on “Members Helping Members” for mutual benefit.
