Summer Edition: Events & Networking Opportunities for Marketers

“Networking has been cited as the number one unwritten rule of success in business. Who you know really impacts what you know.”
~Sallie Krawcheck, CEO and Co-Founder of Ellevest

Effective networking is all about linking up with others to build trusted relationships, increase your visibility and build your reputation within your industry. It’s also important to regularly attend a diverse array of events to increase your knowledge base, learn about new opportunities and make new friends.

We’ve created a list of local organizations that provide a plethora of networking and growth opportunities for marketing and communication professionals. We will be updating this list on a monthly basis to keep you in the loop about what’s going on around town with regard to everything from fun networking receptions to short educational programs.
