The social networking sites are the craze right now, but there is still value in face-to-face networking opportunities, so why not expand your business connections and meet fellow Bearcats in your area at the same time?
Northwest is looking for alumni and friends in the Omaha, Neb., and Des Moines, Iowa, metropolitan areas who are interested in starting a networking group in the area.
Northwest Networks - Kansas City is a networking group currently in existence and consists of Northwest graduates in the Kansas City area who meet at least once a quarter.
"Each meeting is an opportunity to not only meet or reacquaint yourself with fellow alumni, but a chance to hear about businesses and learn how you can help each other in your endeavors," said Polly Parsons Howard '00, '09, a development officer for the Northwest Foundation.
The Kansas City networking group was established three years ago, and today more than 200 alumni and friends are involved. The next meeting of Northwest Networks - Kansas City is Friday, July 24, at the Kansas City Board of Trade.
Northwest alumni who are interested in attending or in starting a Northwest Networks group in their area should contact Howard at 660.562.1248 or email@example.com.
