The LinkedIn group, the Canton Ohio Network Alliance (CONA), holds informal gatherings the second Tuesday of each month. The meetings are held at the Canton Courtyard Marriott from 6-8 pm. The next meeting is October 10, 2017.
There is no charge to attend the meetings or fees to join the group, however, guests are responsible for their own food and beverages.
As with the best intentions of social media, the meetings are designed to be an opportunity to meet other business people in a relaxed and friendly environment. There are no expectations for members to make presentations or to wield a dynamic personality. In fact, hard sells are not encouraged. The get-together is intended to give members an opportunity to introduce themselves to other area professionals, interact with each other and learn about everyone’s businesses and related skills, and hopefully form associations that will lead to networking and new ideas. By all means bring plenty of business cards and any other related handout information. Everyone is encouraged to invite their friends and associates to come along as well.
Please be sure to follow updates for any weather related cancellations or other modifications to our group’s activity. You can follow and join CONA on LinkedIn here: Canton Ohio Network Alliance. The group’s activity is also featured on EventBrite.
