I am testing out a new communication channel for informal updates where I share 1-2 items happening behind the scenes, and events I will attend in person. This week two items are top of mind: 1) Board committees and 2) Hiring.My incredible Board has been working overtime to enable BioCT’s growth. We now have 5 subcommittees: Executive, The Commons, Development, Nominations and Comp & HR. We have made remarkable progress for instance, we have determined 2024 offerings and sponsorship opportunities which we will share at our BioCT Beer & Bioscience Mixer at Stony Creek (September 19th).

As for hiring, I have been able to support matches for confidential C-level searches at member companies. If you have a C-level opening or are a candidate you may forward the job description or your  CV. We still maintain a job board free to members for all other opportunities and candidates.

I plan to attend the CTNext event today at Bar in New Haven. Please reach out if you will be there or to share feedback on my informal updates.
