About this Meeting


Join the LA Admin Group for some distant socializing as we mark the fifth of May together. Bring a beverage of any kind, try your hand at making mole poblano, and let's reconnect with our friends and colleagues. Not least, come learn from our guest speaker and community member Sam Epstein about how he used Salesforce to build an interactive resume. Details below.

While the virtual event is becoming ever more familiar, here are a few guidelines to make sure we keep it fun and social for everyone:

  • We want to see your happy faces: turn on your webcam please! 
  • Be appropriately dressed in a good location without too much noise or other distractions for everyone else
  • Appropriate dress includes no offensive costumes (please see facts below)
  • If you aren't comfortable with showing your face though, that's ok too. We still want you to join.
  • Come ready to have fun, and make sure to give space for everyone to speak one at a time

We welcome all who are interested to join us from near and far, though we especially hope to see our local community members we miss so we can all catch up and connect virtually.

Google Meet URL will be provided upon registration.

Cinco de Mayo Facts:

  • It is *not* the day of Mexican independence! (That would be September 16th, 1810)
  • It *does* honor the battle of Puebla, when the outnumbered Mexican army defeated the invading French in 1862
  • Barely celebrated today in Mexico, it became important for Mexican-Americans in California as a source of pride after the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo ending the Mexican-American War when Latinos were treated as second-class citizens (source: UCLA professor David Hayes-Bautista, author of El Cinco de Mayo: An American Tradition)
  • Beer is not necessary for its celebration
