March Smorgasbord at AASCEND

Our usual room being unavailable for a regular March  meeting, AASCEND has elected to host a range of interesting and far-flung events throughout the month — starting Saturday March 7 when the AASCEND Job Club hosts a special introductory class on Developing Your LinkedIn Profile at 9:30am at the Arc of SF. Don’t miss the instructional stylings of AASCEND favorite Brian Jacobs! This is a great opportunity to put the Internet to work for you in your job search. The program is open to  all members of AASCEND and their friends. 


When: Sat Mar 7, 9:30am
Where: The Arc of SF 1500 Howard St. @ 11th St.    SF, CA 94103  map

Next the social club Friends Like Me and AASCEND are pleased to announce a new Autistic Friends Like Me Social and Recreation Club starting Tuesday, March 17 at 6:00 pm at The Arc of SF in San Francisco. The program is geared to the interests expressed by participants at the October AASCEND Conference — they who cried out for stimulating games, interesting lecture/discussion groups, movies and weekend outings. Our first evening will offer sign-ups for Beginning Bridge card games or Poker and sign-ups for our first weekend outing (to be held on Sat Apr 4).

The program is FREE OF CHARGE and FREE popcorn is available with drinks and snacks available for purchase. Email with any questions.
