Well this will be a fun event where instead of speed dating, we will be speed networking! A great way for each of us to learn a little more about each person in attendance. We will have cards made up with questions that you can use to ask of each person, or you can prepare them ahead of time, or just use whatever questions comes to mind as you meet them. Your choice, just make it fun and informative. We will still be following CDC guidelines by social distancing and wearing of masks is encouraged to protect all who attend. Don’t miss out on our first afterhours of the year and come join in the speed networking! Looking forward to seeing you on the 25th.
