NEHIMSS After Dark: How to Effectively Network During a Pandemic

April 8, 5:00pm, EDT - 7:00pm, EDT

Free Webinar


NEHIMSS will be having our fourth and final Career Advancement Event

NE HIMSS has always encouraged networking amongst our members and between our members and sponsors. However, networking during a pandemic is more than a little challenging. So, NE HIMSS is offering an opportunity to do virtual networking.

Every member and sponsor will be invited to “stand up” and be highlighted on our virtual meeting room and introduce themselves and tell us a bit about themselves: Everyone that wants to network during the evening will be given 1 minute to “stand up” and share.

By agreeing to participate in the networking activity, you also agree to be on video and agree to be highlighted when you share.

Note: This event is open to everybody that wants to network, even if you don’t go on video and talk about yourself – you can listen to how people describe themselves and learn about new companies. Just enter the information when you register and you’ll receive the list of attendees that agreed to share their contact information.

Once registered, further information on what to say during your “stand up” networking will be provided (see below). As there is a limited amount of time available, not everyone may be given an opportunity to “stand up”. As such, please register ASAP – this will be done on a first come first served basis.
