Welcome to the NEW MOBILE FRIENDLY Vancouver’s Networking Website, www.vancouvernetworkingevents.com. I hope you enjoy these networking updates and events list. Here is a little info that might help. This site has two parts, a list of groups that meet at a regular time and place listed by opening this link standard-6-page-events-list last updated 9/7/2016. When you open the link, it opens a word document sorted by day that shows what groups are meeting, what size the group is, where they meet and who is the contact person. The list has a revision date at the bottom so you know if you have the most recent version. Second scroll down for a list of meeting times for current events. If you know of a networking event or group that meets and would like to get the word out, please let me know.

This Week’s Events:
Monday Sept 12th 11:45-1:00 PM Professional Connections will be meeting at Worksource Washington 204 SE StoneMill Dr, Suite 215, Vancouver, WA 98684. Professional Connections advocate ‘you do business with people you know, like and trust’. The meetings are free and open to all.

Tuesday Sept 13th 11:15-12:45 Network With Results International (NWRI) Fort Vancouver chapter has expanded so much, we needed a bigger space. So we found one at WareHouse ’23 located at 100 Columbia St., Vancouver, WA 98660! If you would like to be part of a like-minded group of professionals looking to pass leads and network without the high costs, you have come to the right place. Why? A NWRI business networking chapter is unlike any other networking groups in town. It’s more like attending a multi-chamber networking event once a week, every week — only better. NWRI will save you hundreds of dollars in membership fees and countless hours per year in travel time. Compared to other networking groups, you’ll meet multiple business members all in one place, all at the same time for the same economical price as if you joined only one chapter. Our chapters are limited to three members in the same specialty but from different companies. That means if another chapter is not capped in your industry, you can cross promote your services. This makes NWRI one of the most productive and valuable networking environments you can attend. We mean business. An annual membership fee applies but it is free to attend the first two meetings.
Tuesday Sept 13th 4-6 PM The GVCC will have a Free Ribbon Cutting for Blanchard Wealth Solutions located at 1406 SE 164th Ave, Suite 101, Vancouver WA 98683. Open House 4:00 to 6:00, Ribbon cutting at 4:30 p.m.

We will also have CCA updates to share with you, a great raffle for our guests, and the opportunity to catch up with your fellow CCA members after a great summer out on the water.
