Networking 9

Connecting communicators around the dinner table

 

 

 

As professional communicators, we all know that simple ideas can be the most powerful. Imagine the value of placing nine SF IABC members in an intimate private dining venue, serving them dinner, and launching a conversation on a fascinating communications topic.

Since 2003, SF IABC has offered a unique professional development and networking program called Networking 9. Featuring a handful of small-group, dinner-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. If you’re interested in participating in a Networking 9 event, please contact Julie Knight or Corey Connors, our program directors. Each participant pays for their own meal and the events typically run from 6 – 9 p.m.

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.

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 co-directors, Julie Knight or Corey Connors for additional information.
