Alpharetta Business and Professional Networking
October 7 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
1) What can you expect at this event?
There is no formal agenda for this meetup, it’s a casual and friendly atmosphere. Each event attracts between 30-70 attendees and at our last event, we had about 40 attendees and, it was a really fun event.
Typically, half of the attendees are regulars and half 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.
I try to say hello to everyone, so if you are feeling nervous, just come say hello to me first, and I’ll try to make you feel welcome.
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 friends 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 3,341 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 (to 3,000+ members!) 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?

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.
7) Good reading!
