Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
If you pay at least 24-hours in advanced, no. We will keep a record of those who purchased a ticket at the door and confirm your payment then.
Can you tell me a little more about what to expect?
Sure! We meet for about two hours, but follow a typical flow: between 5:30 – 6:10 people arrive, grab some appetizers, and network with others; from here, our guest speaker will present and take questions until about 7pm. At this point of the night, our program is complete, but you are welcome to stay and chat longer, or spend time at the restaurant or bar as much of the crowd will do.
