“Pulling a good network together takes effort, sincerity and time.” — Alan Collins
Spring is here and it’s time to get out there to grow our networks and engage in some professional development activities. We’ve created a list of local organizations that provide a number of networking and growth opportunities for marketing and communication professionals.
Making the effort to attend networking events is a great way to make new connections and learn from interesting speakers while building a name for yourself. It can sometimes be awkward introducing yourself to new people, but it gets easier over time and can help your career flourish.
