THURSDAY, JUNE 26th          
Rochester Business Alliance      
150 State Street, Suite 301    
5:00pm - 7:00pm 


Networking made easy. Don't let the idea of networking intimidate you. Speed networking offers a twist on the typical meet-and-greet, an organized succession of brief conversations among participants that allows you to talk briefly with 20 or more people. Participants should bring a stack of their own business cards and be prepared with a brief pitch about yourself and your business. Limit of two employees from a company: space is limited. Participants must be present at the entire event.

Due to a Special Partnership between the RBA and the PBA, PBA Members pay $25 (a savings of 50% off the RBA non-member rate). This is a special benefit to you as a member of the PBA. You must be an current PBA Member to register for the discounted rate.
