Is it time to grow your circle of contacts? Learn about what others have to offer? Give yourself, office or organization credibility? Networking in its purest form is simply talking to people, making connections and developing rapport to grow your circle of influence. By developing long-term relationships for mutual gain and creating lasting impressions with people you will be learning a life skill which has many applications for you both personally and professionally. The best networking should focus the attention developing two-way dialogues that have benefits to all parties involved.
The American Society recognizes that there are many forms of networking from personal, to social to professional. Our Networking team works hard to provide something for all interests.
