AFLSE Management Consulting SIG Newsletter



Happy New Year from the AFLSE! We all hope that you had a relaxing holiday season and wish you a prosperous 2009!

As many of you know, AFLSE's Special Interests Group ("SIG") program was launched in 2008 in order to help facilitate connectivity and networking between alumni within their professional areas of expertise.

A key feature of these groups has been the ability to seek mentoring opportunities and advice from fellow alumni; Although we don’t have an official tracking system, our informal feedback has indicated that mentees have been very appreciative of the support that mentors have been providing. We appreciate your help.  If you have any comments on the program, please send us a note.

Furthermore, the SIGs have played a role in fostering professional networking opportunities by providing industry-specific member directories and through the organization of various events and meetings throughout the year.

The kick-off event for the Management Consulting SIG was held in Washington, DC in May 2008.  The program was led by Dr. Dov Zakhiem, VP of Booz Allan Hamilton. Also present were various recruiting representatives who met with attendees that were interested in careers with Booz Allan Hamilton. Please see the event's announcement for further details:  http://www.aflse.org/article.html?aid=625

We hope to build upon the progress we made in 2008, in this coming year. We are always seeking to find others who will help take the group to the next level.  If you like the idea of helping this important professional group with some of your time, please let us know.

Thank you again for you interest in the AFLSE and its Special Interest Groups.

Regards,

Thomas Ward - Management Consulting SIG Co-Chair

Osman Khan - SIG Program Chair and Management Consulting SIG Co-Chair
