Welcome to Vancouver’s Networking Website, 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 10/19/2018. 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. If you are receiving multiple copies of this email or want to be added or removed from the list please email me at
