Our friend (& NMTC member) Stacy Sacco is a consumate networker, Rio Rancho Regional Manager for WESST, teacher, and advocate for community building and connecting local talent with opportunities. If you’re one of the handful of people who isn’t familiar with Stacy, you might check out the video of his talk at TEDxABQ 2012 here.

One of the regular (free) services he offers is his regular postings of job openings and regular postings of key events, organizations and more to a few of his email lists.

He was glad to share his most recent email with us – I encourage you to check it out and consider getting in touch with him directly if you’d like regular updates.
