Event Details

Please join us on Thursday December 12 at University of Dallas for our

Annual Networking/Social Meeting     

and “Gold Elephant Book Exchange”    

For full information, including a map click: 

(Free for members. $10 for Guests. Please RSVP using Register button above.) 


Meeting Goals:
  - Connect:  get to know one another better – personally & professionally
  - Learn:   share knowledge informally during the book exchange
  - Enjoy:   fellowship + creative responses (and humor) of the game

Please bring a gift-wrapped book that is meaningful to you – perhaps a book from your own library to ‘pay it forward’ or one from a second hand bookstore. Don’t spend a lot of money – it’s the thought that counts!

The game will be similar to a traditional white elephant gift exchange — each person in turn will unwrap a book or ‘steal’ one that someone else has already opened. Unlike ‘white elephants’ (which are often useless), the books are ‘gold elephants’ that will contain some unique nuggets of wisdom when opened (or stolen) by the right recipient! Discovering those golden nuggets will be part of the game as people talk about the books they give (and the ones they get)!


(Please join our LinkedIn Group if you haven’t yet done so, and comment on the discussions.)
