There are so many networking and professional development opportunities in the city, it can be hard to know where to start, which ones to go to and how to find the time to go regularly.
Like life, it is a balancing act.
I hope to use this site, not to list all of them, but to feature the best and brightest opportunities that would appeal to the broadest demographic.
I have listed many of the Networking Groups on this site in hopes that if one interests you, you can then link directly to their event pages for greater detail.
The calendar function on this site will also highlight some larger networking and professional development opportunities in Vancouver. Simply click on the date and the details will appear in the feature panel on the home page.
If you don't regularly attend networking or professional development events – start small – one a month, try different groups – what appeals to you about one group may not appeal to the next person.
Before you decide you want to purchase a “membership” with one of the groups, be sure to attend one or two of their events to ensure it is a good investment. What do they offer you (other than discounted rates on events) as a member that validate the extra spend.
