Thank you to those members who took advantage of JNET's membership renewal offer. We are thrilled that so many of you participated and are also grateful for the positive feedback that we have gotten about the plans we have for JNET in 2017.

There is a lot to be excited about right now. The Woodland Hills Chapter held a fantastic January meeting with more than 250 attendees. The speaker, Amit Kleinberger, CEO of Menchie's Frozen Yogurt, gave a brilliant talk that kept the audience riveted.

The Santa Monica Chapter has found a new home at Temple Akiba in Culver City, and we are all so happy that the meetings that were so warm and inclusive will resume.

The Bel Air and Valley Village chapters are holding a combined meeting this month. It promises to be a lot of fun with two incredible speakers, a networking opportunity for members and guests, and the chance to win a Menchie’s gift card.


JNET has a Facebook page, where chapters and members are posting fascinating news and information. Some of the chapters have their own Facebook pages where they feature chapter announcements as well. Stay in-the-know by visiting the Facebook pages at least once a week.

Also take advantage of the JNET LinkedIn group page. Post information about your business, and let members know what you have to offer or anything of interest that you would like to share.

Most importantly of all, go to your profile on the website ( See “Getting the Most Out of Your JNET Profile” below, and make sure that all the information on who you are, what you do, and how to best contact you, is complete and current. You would be surprised how many JNET members use that Member Directory to look for referrals and services. Get your picture up there and let people know that you are ready for business.
