Welcome to 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-3 or PDF version Standard-6-Page-Events-List-3 last updated 4/8/19. 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.
