On Saturday March 6, 2010, at 9:30 AM, in the Multipurpose Annex of the West Broad Street YMCA, located at 1110 May Street.

The Hungry Club Forum of Savannah, Inc. (HCFS), will delve into an issue of great concern in the local community and the nation. As the economy rebounds, “What Can Adults and Youths Do to Position Themselves for the Traditional and New Jobs that Will Become Available?”

To present and facilitate this roundtable exploration, HCFS has tapped the expertise one of its own members Shevon Carr, M.B.A., owner of SheCarr Professional Services. Economic experts continue to assert that the economy is slowly moving on the upswing, but that employment and jobs growth is moving at a slower pace. Studies show that many unemployed and underemployed people are taking advantage of the unique opportunities out there to upgrade and advance their knowledge and training for the jobs that are projected to be available once the economy rebounds.

Through Stimulus funding and other workforce development initiatives, there continues to be opportunities for education, training and retraining for those willing to invest the effort to avail themselves of these opportunities.

Over the last thirty years, Carr, a past member of the Board of Directors of the Savannah Economic Development Authority (SEDA) and a 1992 graduate of Leadership Savannah, has served in numerous financial, administrative and teaching positions in the administrations of Savannah State University and Savannah Technical College. She recently retired as Vice President of Student Services at Savannah Tech.

The HCFS first- Saturday breakfast forums are open to the general public. For more information, please contact Julia Wright at 233-0855 or Diana Harvey Johnson at 927- 8425.
