How to Network Your Way to a Great New Job

Written by State Point on Monday, 30 June 2014 18:07.

When it comes to getting a job or doing business, social media and other forms of electronic communication are a great networking tool, however, there will never be a substitute for communicating face-to-face. In 2013, 68 million business professionals attended business-to-business exhibitions, according to the Center for Exhibition Industry Research (www.CEIR.org). And it’s no wonder that this industry contributes more than $79.3 billion directly to the gross domestic product in attendee and exhibitor spending.

Rights Groups Call for Congress to Act on the Voting

Written by Freddie Allen, NNPA Washington Correspondent on Monday, 30 June 2014 17:55.

Holder, the Supreme Court struck down section 4 of the VRA, a key provision of the law that defined which states and jurisdictions with histories of voter discrimination had to pre-clear any changes to voting rules with the Department of Justice or a federal court.

Educate, Organize and Mobilize: I confess that I’m amazed. The Republican National Committee and the Republican Party of North Carolina announced last week that they have launched the North Carolina Black Advisory Board (BRAB) to strengthen the party’s ties with diverse communities and expand engagement efforts across the state.   I presume that by diverse communities, they mean the Black communities.  Surely they’d need a Hispanic Advisory Board to help them with outreach to Hispanic Communities.
