Truly Connected Networking Nights


We are excited to announce the launch of Truly Connected Networking Nights, virtual networking opportunities for collegiate and alumnae members to connect. This fall, we will host two opportunities to connect and network per month – one based on a targeted professional development topic and one night based on industry. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask career-specific questions, share their experiences and expertise, and begin creating relationships with sisters of different chapters, ages and backgrounds. Truly Connected Networking Nights will take place at 8:00 p.m. Eastern, 7:00 p.m. Central, 6:00 p.m. Mountain and 5:00 p.m. Pacific.
