Guild At-Large Members across the Nation are Forming Regional Networking Groups
There are Guild members in most US regions. We'd love to help you set up a meeting time at your local Panera Bread or favorite meeting spot.
Other members in the At-Large Chapter are getting together on a quarterly basis for breakfast or lunch and are starting to make it work for them.
The benefits of having a local meet up are:
• Learn from your peers about industry or business questions you may have.
• Discuss local topics affecting the industry.
• Meet other professionals in your area that you may be able to partner up with.
• Make money by referring projects to one another.
• Meet new friends.
Other members are having a great time on a regular basis and are sending work to one another. Make it work for you too!
