Networking Groups are now Meetup Groups! Everything else the same, just a fresh, new name!
As an association professional, you can't have all the answers. Often the best and most timely answers to your difficult questions are best answered by your fellow Associations North members.
Meetup groups are small, informal meetings comprised of Associations North members who have shared interests. Meetup Groups discuss issues, ideas and trends on many areas of association and non-profit management. Stay informed, learn new skills, meet Associations North members -- and of course have a good time!
All members of Associations North are eligible to participate. Meetings are free for members. However, any planned event will be self supporting. Associations North offers a variety of Meetup Groups based on areas of interest.
