Professional networking groups help you with job-hunting. Social groups focus on fellowship and activities. Some have local meetings or reunions; many are online. Some are operated by the HPAA; some are supported by HP -- and there are dozens of other formal and informal groups for different HP organizations, including HP acquisitions and spinoffs.
