Alpharetta Business and Professional Networking
September 9, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Hello Alpharetta Business Networkers!
“Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.”
– Henry David Thoreau
Our next networking event will be held on Monday, September 9, 2019, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. This event will be held at the Village Tavern in Alpharetta. There’s plenty of parking.
1) What can you expect at this event?
This meetup event is informal and casual. Each event attracts between 30-70 attendees with an average of ~35. Typically, 50% of attendees are regulars and 50% are first-timers – so if it’s your first time – you won’t be the only one!
These events are three-parts parts business, social and professional. Just come in, get yourself a name tag, drop a business card in the bucket for the raffle, and then start saying hello.
These events are free, but please RSVP and update your RSVP if your plans change.
2) Can you bring a friend?
Yes, please do. There’s a +1 at RSVP you can use. Remind your friend to join Meetup and then join our group so they receive future invitations.
3) How many members in the group?
We’ll get between 30-70 attendees, however, there are 3,317 total members as this note is being written. There are always new people to meet at these events.
4) Get a free plug in the reminder email.
We send a reminder email about a week before the event. This reminder also includes a “news and notes” section that curates news from the greater Alpharetta business community. If you are a member of the group, you can get a plug too. It’s a good opportunity for job seekers too! Here’s how to do it: https://is.gd/MpztHI
5) Have you joined our group on LinkedIn?
Our LinkedIn group is the digital companion for this real-world networking group. This is a good way to transform contacts into connections – there are 249 members in that group presently. Who will be no. 250? Join here: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/12118249/
6) No hard-selling policy.
Please don’t come to these events and hard sell. We have a two-strike rule: If I see you doing it, I’ll ask you privately to stop. If you do it again, there will be no warning, I’ll simply remove and block you from the group.
