CURRENT: Current Connect: Get Plugged In


Current Connect: Get Plugged In
Tuesday, December 22, 2015
5:00 PM to 6:30 PM

Current Connect is a program hosted by Current, the young professionals program of the Greater Green Bay Chamber.

Specifically designed with new members in mind, this program will educate new members on how to maximize their membership investment by educating members on the types of events and programs offered by Current.
Additionally, this facilitated session is setup to create a smaller, more intimate setting for members to build more meaningful personal and professional relationships that are often times more difficult to forge during other larger events. Think of it as a building a cohort to acclimate you to the program while you continue to expand your overall experience.
While new members are targeted for this program, any member is welcome to attend to become more acquainted with their peers and Current’s program offerings.
Food and beverage is served at each session. Please be sure to notify us in advance if you have special dietary restrictions. There is no cost for members of Current to attend.
