DINNER WITH INDUSTRY LEADERS
Join us at our next dinner event with Industry Leaders to discuss Lessons Learned in Contract Management! Dinner will be on Nov 6th at Mijares Mexican Restaurant in Pasadena.
Online networking has become an integral part of our daily business interactions. We expose ourselves to hundreds of new people every day. However, are we really connecting with people on an organic level or are these connections only superficial? The old adage “It’s not what you know. It’s who you know” is no longer relevant in this engaging fast-paced modern workforce. Today’s workforce is tailored around the culture of “It’s not who you know. It’s who knows you”. I joined NCMA to network with people in the acquisitions career field to stay up to date with industry. Today, I challenge you all to step out of your comfort zones and allow your careers to grow by engaging with the leaders of the acquisition community. Join us at our next NCMA event to further your career through education, experience and relationship building. Let’s build our careers together!
