Note From the Board Chair: New Year, New You! Taking Charge of Your Career in 2018
By Aram Nadjarian
With the New Year well underway, I hope you’re beginning 2018 with a sense of optimism, inspiration, and determination. You probably also have a list of resolutions, both personal and professional, and maybe a new gym membership, organization system, or productivity app.
Whatever your goals for 2018, we at NextLA want to be your partner as you embark on a year of new challenges. If you’ve resolved to add to your career-development education, NextLA offers workshops on a host of topics relevant to all professions – and our members can attend for free! If giving back to your community is a priority, NextLA organizes regular volunteer opportunities, both single-day events and our monthly Ready to Learn program that gives you the opportunity to read with a great group of first graders from a Title 1 school in South LA. And if building your professional network is something you want to work on this year, you can meet a great group of talented, passionate young professionals from all industries and sectors at any NextLA event as well as at our regular networking mixers.\
So, as you tick through resolutions like updating your LinkedIn profile, taking the yoga class you’ve been wanting to do, and planning a timeline to finally get that promotion, we hope you’ll keep NextLA in mind. Let us be your secret weapon, and we’ll take on 2018 together!
