Holiday Luncheon & Book Exchange

Join us for our annual holiday luncheon and book exchange!

12/15/21 | Noon - 1:30 p.m. EST

 

Because we don't know what it will be like at the end of 2021, we are not sure if our 7th annual Holiday Luncheon and Book Exchange will be virtual or in person. We hope that everyone will be able to be together, eat great food, and do a White Elephant style book exchange.

Over the lunch time, we’ll hear from a few people about our members’ accomplishments in 2020, and recognize some very special members. Then we’ll break up into chat rooms and have some really fun discussions all about books!

If you are noodling on an idea for a startup, this is a great opportunity for you to Meetup with our entrepreneurial community. Wondering what it would be like to invest in a startup? Get yourself a ticket and meet some of the incredible founders who we've been training over the years. In a service industry that wants to do business with startups and investors? You should definitely be there!

Audience: All members + open to public
