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. Reminder: Ticket Sales end at NOON on the day of the event! Buy online early and save! Tickets are $20.00 at the door. 

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.

How does AMP-RI membership work?

Annual members pay a single, $60 fee for the year and attend all events free! That’s a great value financially. However, you also get great benefits such as discounts to special seminars, free exposure through our website, and access to a network of over 500 local professionals and business owners to post job opportunities or share your own resume.
