Whine & Dine in the News

What an exciting opportunity for people to learn more about Whine & Dine when PBS visited our Stamford event to tape a segment for Frontline. Soon after, Fox 5 NYC TV News came to visit us at our Midtown Manhattan event! The group was really having a great time at The Gossip Bar on 9th and 49th and quite a few were interviewed by Fox anchor and reporter Lisa Murphy. Here's the three minute segment - enjoy and please share with all you know in HR and Talent Management!

Whine and DineThe Whine & Dine Human Resources Networking Group was founded in 2003 with a simple concept - to advance professional and social networking for Human Resources professionals without the burden of excessive rules or requirements and to support the HR community everywhere. Since inception, the group has grown from 5 to over 10,000 practitioners and partners. Many share in what we do, both locally in the northeast and around the United States, as well as internationally. COME JOIN US! No membership fee and no fee to attend our events - we're always in a restaurant, so you pay your own tab for food and drink. The value of the relationships you create and build and the contributions to the professional community you can make are PRICELESS!

Join our Yahoo! Groups

Place An Alternate Description Here!The Yahoo! Group we call WhineAndDine gives us the power to stay connected with what we call pure networking - to share information, articles, opinions and provide a forum to ask fellow HR professionals questions pertaining to our daily professional challenges. As long as you clearly identify yourself and what you do professionally, you are welcome to join this group. We also maintain a second Yahoo! Group, known as WhineAndDineHRJobLeads, where we share HR and Talent Management job leads and job search-related information. Although we welcome vendor contribution to our events, they do not participate in the job leads Yahoo! Group and not permitted to solicit business at events or in the Yahoo! Groups. Additionally, in keeping with the belief that networking is a practice one should maintain at all times and not just while in job search, HR practitioners must first be a member of the main networking group WhineAndDine before being admitted to the job leads group.

To join one or both of these groups, click on WhineAndDine or WhineAndDineHRJobLeads to view the group's description. Then click on the button that says: Join This Group. You will then be asked to sign into your Yahoo! account. Answer the three profile questions and you'll shortly be approved to become a member in one or both of these rapidly-growing groups. Just remember that you MUST to identify yourself with your full name and tell us what you do within or outside of the profession of Human Resources.
