Want to get new ideas for your association? Looking for a job? Have a great program to share? Just want to actually meet some new people in the association field?
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 networking event; if you’re looking for a more educational workshop version about how to implement online networking, 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. And even introverts will tell you that the format is great.
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.
This is NOT:
- sales pitches
- speed dating
- elevator speeches
Schedule (all times Eastern)
11:45 - optional 10-minute Zoom familiarization pre-session
12:00 - networking starts
12:05 - room closes
1:00 - session concludes
We’re looking for a diversity of association professionals – membership, meetings, finance, management, etc. – with a range of experience levels within the association world.
