A series of small, informal meetups are in the works to provide additional networking and socializing opportunities for IABC members and potential members. There is no cost to attend these events – and they are open to marketing, communications, social media and public relations professionals and students – as well as anyone who wants to learn about the industry.
At the first meetup – held recently in Ann Arbor at Conor O’Neill’s Traditional Irish Pub and Restaurant – conversation ranged from job search tips, advice for individuals dealing with challenging bosses, to the best islands in Hawaii.
The Ann Arbor location encouraged attendance from people further away from the Metro Detroit area.
The next meet up in Ann Arbor will be held in October.
