Business Managers Network

The Business Manager Network has been designed to provide both new and veteran business managers a forum to learn, collaborate, network and grow professionally. The topics covered will be developed with input from the network members during the first meeting. Each meeting will have a facilitator and agenda with a presentation on one or two relevant topics followed by Q&A and work time for participants. Lunch will be offered at each meeting and space will be available before and after the meeting if network members would prefer to come early or stay later depending on work schedule and travel needs
