Virtual Networking Lunch for Association Pros

When:  Aug 7, 2020 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (ET)

Sorry, this event is now at capacity.

Want to get new ideas for your association? Looking for a job? Have a great idea or program to share? Want to get a jump on meeting people before the annual conference?

Join us for a fast, fun, and productive networking lunch (or breakfast or brunch, depending on your time zone). It’s networking that’s natural, not awkward.

We’ll be using a number of online engagement techniques that you can adapt, copy and steal for your own events. (This is a real, interactive demonstration of online networking techniques with a drop of explanation; if you’re looking for a longer, workshop version about online networking with more education, you can also join us for that session.)

This isn’t about just exchanging business cards. It's designed to really get people to engage and find real value in connecting. You’ll meet 4-8 other great association pros.

Who should attend?
