After Work with ETEC

Connecting Emerging & Established Professionals!

In 2018, ETEC started a quarterly late afternoon/evening event series designed to foster an environment of mentoring and relationship-building between early career professionals and those who are more established. All ETEC members are invited to attend and are asked to encourage emerging leaders in your organizations and networks to attend. Guests are always welcome!

These in-person events are sponsored by an ETEC member company and include a program and Q&A with accomplished professionals, networking, snacks, and drinks. There is no charge to attend, but registrations are required.
