We have a mix of in-person and virtual meetings each month that makes connecting easy.

While adapting to the changes of the last couple of years, we learned a few things along the way. We can get together in person, AND found we could still offer valuable connections virtually, saving long commutes, and maximizing the ability to attend any of the 5 meetings over the month.

If your meeting happens to be over zoom, then you can use a more convenient time to meet in person to forge a deeper connection with individual members of the group.

Our group, program and membership leads have become experts in creating valuable networking opportunities across the board!
