In reaction to the speed of response, Fred Kruger, attorney with Paule, Camazine & Blumenthal, P.C. who assisted GO! Network in the application remarked “Well, I was fairly stunned. I had to read the letter again to make sure it said what I thought it said. This is an extraordinary response and speaks to the importance of addressing the unemployment need. This means everyone can really get to work now.”
“The completion of our IRS filing represents a tremendous step forward in the growth and development of GO! Network” said Roni Chambers, GO! Network Director. “There is an entirely new employment model being used today, and our independent status will allow us to continue to grow and adapt to serve the professional community with support that is not available through traditional public and private sector resources.”
Greg Vogelweid, COO of St. Patrick Center “We look forward to supporting GO! Network through the use of our conference center and we are excited that a program we nurtured is building a sustainable model that will continue to support unemployed professionals in our community.”
David Greenwalt, GO! Network’s President & COO comments on the transition, “The move to an independent organization enables expansion of this innovative response to the critical issues surrounding today’s employment.”
Throughout 26 months of growth and expansion, GO! Network has remained free to all participants, relying solely on the donations and support of corporate and private partners, as well as the efforts of a core group of dedicated volunteers.

About GO! Network

Founded in February 2009, with support and sponsorship from United Way of St. Louis, St. Patrick Center and corporate leaders, GO! Network is a peer-directed community, delivering hope, encouragement and practical tools for business professionals who have lost their jobs.
Providing personal and professional growth through life, education and career opportunities, GO! Network is designed to proactively respond to the escalating needs of St. Louis professionals in transition.
