Marketing Committee

The purpose of the JSFG Marketing Committee is to assure that local job-seeking professionals who are not yet Candidates, as well as the region's HR hiring managers, companies, and recruiting firms, both hear about and are attracted to attend JSFG Monday Meetings and to utilize the newly designed website. This Committee continually works on projects to market JSFG to the region through social media and events, and by networking with other resource groups.

Through the redesigned website with Candidate Profile and Employer Portal, JSFG now enables companies to easily search for needed talent.  This is just one example of the work we do.

Join the Marketing Committee!  We have much to accomplish and it may lead to your next career move!   If interested, email

Business Office Committee

The Business Office Committee is responsible for assigning volunteers to help during office hours (Mondays 12-3pm and Tuesday-Friday 9am-3pm). Committee Candidates oversee the schedule of volunteers, are responsible for making sure all shifts are assigned to a JSFG Candidate and office equipment is in good order, and that paper announcements and brochures are set out and gathered back up each Monday morning meeting. The commitment asked of all JSFG Candidates (including chairperson and committee Candidates) is two office shifts per month (six hours total).

Outreach Committee

The Outreach Committee mission is to bring companies looking for new talent to JFSG. We talk to SMBs and global corporations, introduce JSFG, and invite them to our meeting. These companies speak about their needs so that we make the connection between our talented members and these organizations.  This is a great opportunity for career seekers to meet targeted companies, to understand their HR needs, and to become a top-of-mind candidate.

Demand on your time varies depending upon the efficiency you experience getting through to these companies. Attendance at the monthly Leadership Meeting of one hour is required to ensure outreach efforts are understood by the group and synchronized for success.
