About the Charlotte, NC Chapter

The chapter in Charlotte has over 1,100 professionals with more than half on the Alumni list (meaning -- employed or they have landed and are with a new employer).

Monthly chapter meetings are usually on the second Monday of the month, are casual and generally last two hours providing members time for 1:1 networking or small group gatherings for dinner or cocktails afterwards, following our featured speaker’s presentation

We would like to spend the final 30 minutes doing our rounds of introductions and network leads and then adjourn to a mutually agreed upon location for adult beverages and conversation.

The regular meeting agenda will include:

1. Introductions for first time attendees and exchange of resumes (New attendees should bring 15 copies of your resume to share, or a brief objective and biographical summary). Bring name tent.
2. Featured Speaker (Topic) for the Evening. Will generally have 75 – 90 minutes of time.
3 Networking within Group: Sharing your 60-second announcement (optional).
4. Share individual search and success stories.
5.. Share leads - Please make an effort to identify potential leads or contacts to share.

6. Please try to be on time though we understand traffic can be a challenge.
