How it Works 

Join us for the exciting, fast-paced morning networking event, Direct Connect! Our networking format is designed to help you initiate meaningful, strategic conversations within moments of meeting a new connection. We want to help you expand your network through Direct Connect.

How it works: We will for the first time utilize a virtual meeting platform, Zoom. After you have registered for the event you will receive a link to join the meeting. We will still utilize smaller groups for networking, but it will all be virtual. Check your computer for a web camera and microphone, and you are good to go. Once you click the link, your computer will download Zoom and connect you to our meeting. You can also join the meeting through your phone, tablet, or traditional calling in.

The room opens at 7:30 am, and the networking starts at 8 am.
