Networking 9

Connecting communicators around the dinner table

 

 

 

You can now join Networking 9 gatherings online! We’re continually brainstorming new topics to discuss, so check back often for details and registration info.

Imagine the value of bringing together a group of seasoned SF IABC members to share stories, challenges and solutions from their work with companies, clients and colleagues.  

Since 2003, SF IABC has offered a unique professional development and networking program called Networking 9. Featuring a handful of small-group, evening discussions each year, Networking 9 gives participants the opportunity to explore new ideas, share real-world challenges and build deeper IABC relationships.

See the schedule for upcoming Networking 9 events and topics below. Formerly staged in restaurants in the Bay Area, Networking 9 has moved online for the rest of 2020.

Although open to all SF IABC members, demand for Networking 9 events often exceeds supply. Interested members are encouraged to join the waiting list, share their contact information and propose future topics to our co-directors.

Examples of past topics include: Let’s Share Measurement Best Practices, Taking Employee Communications from Dull to Daring, Change Communications Best Practices and What Would You Do If You Weren’t Afraid.

Attention IABC Chapter Presidents: SF IABC has developed “Networking 9 in a Box” – a step-by-step guide to establishing and conducting Networking 9 events in your chapter. Please contact our chapter for additional information.
