Someone made a comment to me last night that if you have to pay for a meal at an ACS meeting, you are not connected enough. Between committee meetings that happen over a meal, receptions for various organizations, and so on, I think they may be right. To get you started, here's a great networking opportunity, whether you're on-site or not.
What other networking opportunities are happening in Denver? Post them in this discussion thread.
Hope to see you there!
ACS Global Networking Reception
Date: Tuesday, August 30 Time: 4:00-6:00pm Where: ACS Booth #1022 in the ACS Exposition Hall (and in the Virtual Networking Lounge)
Learn the art of networking from Bonnie Coffey, then start developing key career contacts! Games and refreshments will be available to serve as networking ice breakers. You'll not only connect with fellow ACS National Meeting attendees, but also with virtual attendees from around the world. Local ACS Sections, International Chapters, and Student Chapters will be hosting networking receptions concurrently. All of these local events will be linked together via the Virtual Career Fair in order to create the ACS’s largest networking event ever. Don't miss it!
