Description

The Parker community is invited to connect at the Parker Networking Reception on Thursday, February 1, 2018 from 6 - 9 p.m. Enjoy spectacular views of the ocean at the Catamaran Resort and Spa. This three hour event will include two 30-minute panel discussions and over one-hour of open networking for attendees to mingle, exchange business cards, re-connect with classmates and friends and enjoy delicious food and refreshments. Alumni, current juniors and seniors and parents in any industry are welcomed and encouraged to attend. Delicious food and beverages will be provided.

This year we changed the format. Come early to hear one or two panel discussions and stay to mingle with the full crowd.
