    Hi everyone, 

    Who is attending CONNECT? Who would like to meet up virtually before we head out to CONNECT so that we know some familiar faces once we are in Las Vegas? Thankfully this year I have a few contacts that I know who will be attending, but my first few years in attending CONNECT, I did not have any buddies to hang with. I actually skipped the evening events because I become a wallflower in large crowds. At MPI's WEC conference, I participated in a virtual networking event and thought it would be great to host a meetup as a way for us all to meet each other before the event and know some faces once we are at the conference. 

    Even if you are not attending in person please join as we will have various groupings - in-person, virtual, and both experiences together so we can get to know each other!​

    Please join me on July 28th at 4:30 PM ET for a special networking session and connect with other attendees so that we can get the most out of our conference experience by starting to make connections before the event! It's super fun!

    Register here so I can email you a calendar reminder with the Zoom link:  Pre-CONNECT Meetup 

    Please know I will not use your email address for anything other than this meetup event.  

    Looking forward to meeting you!

    This is a great idea, Michele! I wish I would be joining all of you in Las Vegas this year, but unfortunately I will be joining virtually. That said, would you mind if a virtual attendee joined the group?
